Waking up on the Upper West Side never ceases to inspire – especially when New York City’s cultural icons such as The Dead Poet, Metropolitan Opera and Zabar’s are nearby. It’s no surprise then that so many home seekers move to the neighborhood and never want to live anywhere else.
306 West 100th Street, 55 is not only a few short blocks away from some of New York City’s most treasured landmarks but also evokes it’s own historical significance as a pre-war building with a private marble lobby. Details like original wainscoting, soaring ceiling heights and decorative crown molding in this spacious co-op remind you that you’re waking up amidst local history.
Should the weather permit, you can start your day by enjoying an invigorating jog through Riverside Park, the scenic waterfront public park that is just down the block from 306 West 100th Street, 55. 4 miles will fly by when you’re able to gaze at the Hudson River. Need to refuel after your morning workout? Stop by The Health Nuts near West 99th Street and Broadway for an energizing smoothie.
Weekends on the Upper West Side are idyllic for New York City’s foodies and art lovers. Why not brunch at the New-York Historical Society’s airy cafe, Caffee Storico? Venetian-inspired appetizers and hand-crafted pastas are appropriately indulgent on a Saturday afternoon. The local favorite Good Enough to Eat is predictably packed on weekend night but who can resist the American comfort food at this casual, farmhouse-themed spot? Fancy some high-brow culture for the weekend? Lincoln Center is close by and houses the New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, Metropolitan Opera and more.
For a night cap following the show at Lincoln Center, grab a table at The Dead Poet, where every cocktail is named after American poets such as Edgar Allen Poe and Robert Frost. Culture, cuisine and craft cocktails – a day in the life at 306 West 100th Street, 55 is nothing short of vibrant!

HGTV’s “Selling New York” follows CORE agents as they navigate the country’s most competitive—and compelling—real estate market. Here’s our behind-the-scenes look at Episode #608, which first aired on January 17, 2013. For more SNY recaps, click here.
In SNY episode #608 entitled “Slide Show,” Elizabeth Kee and Lindsee Silverstein team up to list a penthouse in the “A Building” at 425 East 13th Street. The seller is a young, world class poker player who has taken his bachelor pad up a notch with a sculptural slide that combines two penthouse apartments. This listing is a true game changer with a sprawling floor plan, multiple private outdoor spaces and a game/media room. Combined with a double height atrium and floor-to-ceiling windows which offer open city views, this penthouse with a slide is a truly a unique dream home.
After 15 other potential agents were interviewed, Elizabeth and Lindsee were selected to list this unique property because of their candor about the face-lift needed to achieve the seller’s ambitious asking price. Also, their creative ways offered to market the apartment without removal of the slide (as most other agents suggested) sealed the deal. With the slide remaining, these resourceful agents were able to lose the frat house feel and upgrade the property to emulate a sleek home – perfect for entertaining.
Part of the customized marketing plan included an influencer’s event, which targeted young, influential industry gurus, who this listing would appeal to. The catered event with a noted local mixologist, renowned spin artist, and prominent sommelier added to the event’s huge success.
