How was this building rated?

Opened in 2000, the Chatham at 181 East 65th Street was conceived by Robert A. M. Stern, the dean of the Yale School of Architecture.

The design of the 34-story Chatham displays all of Stern’s virtuoso architectural skills. Inside, the 94 apartments feature classic layouts with fine finishes throughout, including solid wood doors, cherry wood floors and – most rare of all in post-war construction – plaster walls. Modern kitchens have premium appliances and glass and ash-blond cabinets imported from France. High-efficiency windows were imported from the Netherlands and bathrooms have marble floors and walls and topnotch fixtures. Several units have balconies or terraces.

The Chatham’s amenities are impressive and include an on-premise garage, storage and bike rooms and a David Barton Gym.
