For all the bells and whistles that go into modern condo construction, sometimes there's no substitute for architectural accents from another era. Converted downtown apartments are especially rich in prewar details, but co-ops in classic uptown neighborhoods are no slouch either. According to CityRealty listings, 659 new listings came on the market last week. We've chosen the ones that most masterfully combine prewar details with contemporary amenities.
