Carter Horsley's Review of 279 Central Park West

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the newer apartment houses on Central Park West, this 24-story building, at 279 Central Park West on the north corner at 88th Street, was erected as a condominium in 1988 and is one of the few buildings in the city to have curved-glass corner windows.

The windows, add a very graceful note to the building's asymmetrical composition, but also take advantage of its stupendous views of Central Park." Read Carter's Full Review
