Description of The Oxford at 422 East 72nd Street

The Oxford at 422 East 72nd Street is a condominium tower set back 65 feet from the street in its own formal English cobblestone court garden.

A number of the original 204 residences have been combined into huge family homes, including a 6,000-square-foot duplex with several oversized terraces. The apartments are designed to maximize space and natural light, with lavish materials and numerous layouts that may include libraries, hall pantries, maid's rooms and duplexes. Each of the Tower Residences on the upper floors has one-of-a-kind layouts. Many of the Oxford’s apartments have at least one balcony or terrace. Marble bathrooms are designed for relaxing with Jacuzzi tubs and separate shower stalls. Walls of windows reveal panoramic city and river views. There are tons of closets, huge walk-ins, some fireplaces and washers and dryers.

The building’s amenities include a 24-hour doorman and concierge and a 24-hour health club. Recently renovated, it has an indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness equipment, saunas and a basketball court. Residents can relax on the outdoor sun deck or the indoor lounge; their children, meanwhile, have access to the Oxford’s indoor playroom or outdoor playground. There is a rear garden, a garage accessible via the elevator and video security.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Oxford

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The Oxford at 422 East 72nd Street is one of the handsomest post-war apartment towers on the Upper East Side. 

When Sotheby's moved from Madison Avenue to York Avenue this area was dominated by low-rise residential structures of mixed quality and an ambulance alley for the hospitals along York Avenue to the south. " Read Carter's Full Review
