The Oliver Cromwell, 12 West 72nd Street

Between Central Park West & Columbus Avenue

Description of The Oliver Cromwell

The Oliver Cromwell is an immaculate prewar high-rise in Central Park West designed in the Italian Renaissance style 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, as well as limited subletting with board approval. Its address at 12 West 72nd Street puts it in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District near Central Park, Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, high-end shopping, fine dining like Tavern on the Green, and express and local transportation options.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Oliver Cromwell

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
