The Alameda, circa 1915, was built by visionary architect Gaetan Ajello and is known to be one of the most distinctive and handsome buildings of this era featuring glazed terracotta, limestone base and design elements and a double height marble lobby. Ajello's buildings are well-loved for their scale, presence and grace, and the Alameda is a wonderful example. Ideally located on 84th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue, the Alameda is situated in the heart of the vibrant Upper West Side surrounded by parks, top ranked public and private schools, shopping, revered specialty markets, casual and formal dining, and public transportation. Residents appreciate a full-time doorman and porter, live-in superintendent, sumptuously landscaped roof deck with both Hudson and Central Park views, and bike room. 75% financing and pets are permitted.
