The Bolivar Overview

This quite handsome, 15-story building at 230 Central Park West on the north corner at 83rd Street was designed by Nathan Korn in 1926 and converted to a cooperative in 1984.  

It has 156 apartments.

With its attractive terra-cotta trim and corner, this red-brick, Neo-Georgian-style building is typical of the high quality of design and construction of the 1920's when many similar buildings were erected on Park Avenue and West End Avenue. They, of course, do not have the Bolivar's greatest asset, wonderful views of Central Park. Just a block north of the great Beresford apartment building, the Bolivar is only a few blocks north and south of subway stations and cross-town buses on a fairly quiet stretch of Central Park West.
