The distinguished 'Lombardy' has been the 2nd home to many prominent American & foreign owners. Richard Rogers, Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor spent much of their NY time at the Lombardy. Built by William Randolph Hearst in 1926, the building is located on a leafy and tranquil side street in the sophisticated 'East 50s', two blocks from Central Park, convenient to all transportation -- and proximate to Manhattan's most fashionable shops, boutiques & restaurants. The Lombardy includes Cafe 56 restaurant (offering room service), a state of the art fitness center, business center, beauty salon, espresso bar; valet parking is available for residents. Maid service (twice daily) and utilities are included in maintenance. Importantly, the Lombardy is a unique investment opportunity -- owners who are infrequently in residence may rent their apartments daily, weekly, monthly (or longer) and receive income during the time they are away. A 'Lombardy' in-house executive vets rental clients and arranges for apartment rentals. 2% flip tax paid by seller.
