This extraordinary duplex in the iconic Hotel des Artistes cooperative is located near the highly coveted corner of 67th Street and Central Park West. The residence is close to the world-renowned Tavern on the Green restaurant in the heart of Central Park, the NYC Marathon's famous finish line, the beloved route of the Annual Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade, as well as Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Apartment 506 is a stunning combination of prewar architecture and contemporary design. Recent renovations have created a state-of-the-art modern environment without sacrificing any of its original personality.

Light streams in throughout the day while providing dramatic open city views both day and night. The adjacent dining area easily seats 8-10 and leads into the well-proportioned windowed kitchen. A powder room completes the entertainment and public space on the first floor. The second floor houses the private bedrooms and baths. The master bedroom features a large windowed en-suite bath with soaking tub. The second bedroom's bath with walk-in shower is across the hall as is the in-unit washer/dryer.
