There is still one month left in 2023, but many seem to be taking the time between Thanksgiving and the December holidays to reflect on the biggest trends of the year (e.g. Spotify Wrapped). It is in this spirit that CityRealty looks back on the most popular buildings of 2023, as determined by number of views from site visitors.

Central Park West
43 floors | 202 condo units | Completed in 2008
Robert A.M. Stern Architects | Zeckendorf Development
2023 PPSF: $4,255 (2 sales)
8 public availabilities from $3.395M - $45M

15 Central Park West
The limestone-clad 15 Central Park West pays respectful tribute to the prewar buildings lining Central Park, and the interiors are beautifully appointed to make the most of park views. Residents enjoy easy access to Central Park, Lincoln Center, and Michelin-star dining, but the building's private restaurant has emerged as a holiday destination.

72 floors | 811 condo units | Completed in 2008
Adamson Associates Architects | Extell Development

252 South Street
Glassy towers have come to define Billionaires' Row, but were all but unheard of in this stretch of Lower Manhattan before One Manhattan Square, the only downtown building among CityRealty visitors' most popular, took shape. It stands out as much for its soaring height as for the incredible array of amenities inside and out.

#8. The Plaza

1 Central Park South | Midtown West
21 floors | 181 condo units | Completed in 1907 | Converted in 2007
Henry Janeway Hardenbergh | El Ad Properties
2023 PPSF: $3,169 (9 sales)
29 public availabilities from $1.295M - $50M

1 Central Park South
From classic cinema to holiday favorites to children's books, The Plaza has become a fixture in pop culture and considered the epitome of New York City. Its beautiful architecture, white-glove service, and prime address where Fifth Avenue meets Central Park likely have something to do with it.

The Plaza, #1801 (Compass)

2109 Broadway | Upper West Side
18 floors | 385 condo units | Completed in 1904 | Converted in 1990
Paul Duboy | El Ad Properties
2023 PPSF: $1,569 (11 sales)
3 public availabilities from $995K - $3.5M

2109 Broadway
When The Ansonia was constructed in the early 20th century, it opened as a luxury hotel. Today it is a New York City Landmark and full-block condominium with unique layouts and historic details throughout. It is in a prime Upper West Side location near Central Park, Riverside Park, Lincoln Center, and the American Museum of Natural History.

Billionaires' Row
96 floors | 104 condo units | Completed in 2015
Rafael Viñoly | Macklowe Group and CIM Group
2023 PPSF: $4,890 (6 sales)
16 public availabilities from $5.75M - $130M

432 Park Avenue DBOX for Macklowe Properties
Acclaimed architect Rafael Viñoly died in March 2023, but his legacy lives on with buildings like 432 Park Avenue, which was the tallest in the world upon its completion. Not only do the oversized windows set its minimalist design apart in the skyline, but they also allow for spectacular light and views in every unit.

Upper East Side Gold Coast
19 floors | 31 co-op units | Completed in 1930
Rosario Candela | James T. Lee
One sale in 2023
3 public availabilities from $15.95M - $48M

740 Park Avenue
While Billionaires' Row has emerged as the new home of New York's wealthiest, the original "tower of power" has not been forgotten. The building has long attracted the world's wealthiest, and owners here are not interested in flipping their apartments, often holding onto them for decades. Between this and the highly selective co-op board, deals in this building are few and far between, but generate headlines when they happen.

217 West 57th Street | Billionaires' Row
98 floors | 179 condo units | Completed in 2021
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture | Extell Development
2023 PPSF: $4,331 (21 sales)
15 public availabilities from $6.5M - $195M

Billionaires' Row with Central Park Tower in the center
As the tallest apartment building in the Western Hemisphere, Central Park Tower commands attention in the skyline as well as in the media. From the Nordstrom flagship store at the base to the 100th-floor Central Park Club, it conveys an unmistakable air of luxury; the apartments in between enjoy massive floor plates, top-of-the-line finishes, and panoramic views.

SHoP Architects | JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group
2023 PPSF: $3,989 (7 sales)
8 public availabilities from $8.495M - $54.6M

111 West 57th Street
Between the restored Steinway Hall at the base and the world's skinniest tower rising from there, all aspects of 111 West 57th Street command attention. Apartments in Steinway Hall are rich in prewar-inspired design details, the tower houses full-floor residences with soaring ceilings and panoramic city views, and residents of both components enjoy access to a luxurious amenity package.

10 floors | 103 co-op units | Completed in 1884

1 West 72nd Street
Earlier this year, it was reported that Yoko Ono had moved out of the apartment at The Dakota she shared with John Lennon. It seemed to represent the end of an era; but between its rich history and dramatic architecture, it would take more than one notable resident's move to shake The Dakota's place in the imagination of New Yorkers and admirers all over the world.

721 Fifth Avenue | Midtown West
58 floors | 238 condo units | Completed in 1983
Hayden Connell Swanke | Trump Organization
2023 PPSF: $1,564 (13 sales)
10 public availabilities from $1.595M - $10.5M

721 Fifth Avenue
While it has been overshadowed in terms of height and luxury by the supertalls to the west, Trump Tower still looms large over Fifth Avenue and in the minds of potential buyers. It was the site of protests against some of the former president's most despicable policies; more recently, some have wondered what will happen to the building in the wake of the Trump Organization's civil fraud trial.
