Sometimes an apartment’s identity is dictated by its surroundings. In this case, there are almost too many to choose from.

And it just so happens to be in one of the best buildings on the Bowery, currently being transformed into a hotbed of hospitality, nightlife and culture. With views down to the World Trade Center and Brooklyn Bridge, and up to the Empire State Building, this is a Manhattan home that’s straight out of a storybook.

In fact, we would venture to guess that the Upper West Side has the most dedicated fans in the entire city. The Grand Millennium is one of the most revered apartment buildings in the area, offering stunning views and attractive floorplans.
