Located minutes from Central Park, Lincoln Center, and The Hudson River Greenway, The Pythian is a full service condominium with a long history. Designed by Thomas W. Lamb and built in 1927, it was occupied by the Knights of Pythias until the 1940s when it became the headquarters for Decca Records. Buddy Holly, Sammy Davis Jr., and Billie Holiday are some of the great names who recorded their hits here for the next 15 years. Following its use as the New York Institute of Technologys main campus in the 1950s and 1960s, the building was converted into condominiums in 1986 after an award winning redesign by renowned architect David Gura. To this day, its striking façade and architectural features make it a stand out landmark and an Upper West Side icon. Amenities include: full-time doorman, live- in super, porter, laundry room, kids playroom, storage and a brand new gym. There is an assessment of $240.81 per month.
