Description

The Oliver Cromwell is an immaculate prewar high-rise in Central Park West designed by Emery Roth in 1926. The lobby and elevators have been restored to reflect the original 1920's glory, and the building is staffed by a 24-hour doorman and live-in superintendent. Residential amenities include a bike room and central laundry room.

The building welcomes pets and allows pied-a-terres. Its address at 12 West 72nd Street puts it near Central Park, Lincoln Center, high-end shopping, fine dining, and express and local transportation options.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This 30-story tower is credited with ushering in "the transformation of its parkside neighborhood into one of the most architecturally distinctive areas in the city...It is one of Manhattan's finest free-standing towers of the 1920's."

That assessment was made, correctly, by Steven Ruttenbaum in his book, "Mansions in the Clouds, the Skyscraper Palazzi of Emery Roth," (Balsam Press, Inc., 1986)." Read Carter's Full Review
