In Manhattan’s high-end real estate market, a home’s address is a defining feature. More than a number on a mailbox, an address represents a neighborhood, history and a chance to live in a prestigious NYC residence. A beautiful, notable building is bolstered by surrounding icons. When it comes to luxury living in the city, close proximity to Central Park is as good as it gets. Below are three listings, each with their own cache, allure and Central Park views.
When it comes to a jaw-dropping address, 15 Central Park West is sure to get attention. The pinnacle of elegance, this Robert A.M. Stern designed building occupies an entire city block and pays tribute to the design of Fifth Avenue apartments from the 1920s. The only post-construction combination unit in the building, this 35th floor residence gives stunning east, west and south views of Central Park, downtown Manhattan and the Hudson River.
The Essex House is not only one of the world’s most celebrated hotels but also one of the most desirable Manhattan residences. This Art Deco style building debuted in 1931 and quickly became an icon easily distinguished by its glowing rooftop sign.
