Description

Barbizon/63 is a full-service Romanesque-style building listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

It first opened as a residential house for women in 1927 and was subsequently converted into apartments in 2005. Barbizon 63 – formerly known as the Barbizon Hotel for Women – contains 65 residences that range from one-bedroom condominiums to duplex penthouse units, with the latter offering residents more than 5,300 square feet of living space. Apartments feature rosewood floors, crown moldings and French casement windows; some units boast private outdoor space.

Residents have access to a wide array of amenities including a 24-hour doorman and concierge, live-in resident manager, residential lounge and dining room, catering kitchen, library, 20-seat screening room and conference room, not to mention a private residential entrance to Equinox Gym & Spa (with original Barbizon indoor pool) on Lexington Avenue and 63rd Street.

It is situated on a tree-lined townhouse block between Third and Lexington Avenues and is close to Central Park, the many shops and restaurants in the Upper East Side, and the recently remodeled F and Q train station. Liza Minnelli, Joan Crawford and Sylvia Plath are among the famous personalities who have resided at 140 East 63rd Street.
