Description of The Osborne

The Osborne was built in 1883 as one of New York's first major luxury apartment buildings. Many notable New Yorkers have called the building home (including Leonard Bernstein, who wrote West Side Story there), and it is now a New York City Landmark for its dramatic entrance and opulent lobby.

Amenities include storage, a bike room, and a central laundry room. Pets, pied-a-terres, and in-unit washer/dryers are permitted. The Osborne is located at 205 West 57th Street, on BIllionaires Row and close to Central Park, Carnegie Hill, Lincoln Center, and the Theater District.

Carter Horsley's Review of The Osborne

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"An adulterated residential fortress, the Osborne, which was built in 1883, was one of New York's first major luxury apartment buildings and despite its somber appearance is palatial.

In 1889, Ware raised the roof to add servants quarters and seventeen years later a 25-foot-wing was added at its western end." Read Carter's Full Review
