Pre-War By The Park
There is something magical about living on a park block on the Upper Westside. Trees at your back, comforting, classical architecture unfolding in front of you, a soothing breeze fresh air beauty life feels good.
There's something wonderful about living in a quiet Prewar building. High ceilings above you, comforting, classical design unfolding in front of you a soothing scale timeless beauty life feels good.
Here, in the peaceful back of its handsome Prewar building, is a home that offers the comfort of classical scale, a common sense layout that has served this residence for nearly a century, and practical upgrades that make today's life work well. The ceilings are a bit higher, the windows seem a bit bigger, the closets are good, and the rooms are well scaled. The kitchen is windowed and open to the living room. There is a sweet arch in the foyer. The bathroom is windowed and classic and has a big, original, cast iron soaking tub. There is a soulful patina that has been earned by this residence over the years. It feels good.
Right down the block is Riverside Park. Right up the street are all the conveniences of Broadway shops, cafs, a cinema, the subway and crosstown bus. Life in this classic, pet and pied-a-terre friendly doorman building (w/live-in super & laundry/bike/storage rooms) is easy and convenient. Prewar and park-side meld together beautifully on this pretty Upper Westside block, and everywhere you look, there is something lovely to see.
