The legendary Rockefeller Apartments are a pair of cooperatives located at 24 West 55th Street and 17 West 54th Street connected via a charming courtyard garden. Home to renown restaurant Michael's, the buildings are known as a destination enclave for many involved in the arts and innovation. Close to MoMA and just off of 5th Avenue in the heart of the City, 24 West 55th Street is a full-service cooperative that has a full-time doorman, private storage, and allows pets. The buildings were commissioned by John D. Rockeller Jr. and Nelson Rockefeller in 1935 and were designed by the firm Harrison & Fouilhoux. The architecture of the buildings were thought to have set the tone for New York City house planning for years to come due to the design and pattern of the window bays and the particular attention to light and air. The building lobby was redone in 2004 by designer Rejean Tetreault to invoke 1930's Modernism. This lovely one bedroom at The Rockefeller Apartments awaits your personal touch. Facing right into the trees on East 55th Street, the large living room is bathed in sunlight. The bedroom is to your right and leads to the bathroom and numerous closets. The bathroom can also be accessed via a separate hallway off the living room, or that space can be turned into a more formal dressing room.
