Designed and constructed by Harvey Wiley Corbett in 1928, the Master Apartments is an Art Deco landmark building, converted to a cooperative in 1988. This full service co-op, with 28 floors and over 300 units, has full-time concierge in the lobby, on-site management office and a large maintenance staff. The Master's grand lobby has been restored, storage areas have been installed with lockers of all sizes, a state-of-the-art bike room was added, and the large laundry facility was renovated. Recently its hallways were completely remodeled. The co-op is pet friendly and allows pieds-a-terre, gifting, co-purchasing, and guarantors. The Master Gallery in the lobby hosts four shows per year, promoting resident and neighborhood artists. Due to its rich cultural and architectural history, the Master was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.
Step out of the building and walk into Riverside Park. Take the stairs down to Hudson River walkway, and take a walk, run, ride a bicycle, or have a nice picnic on the green grass. If you are a tennis player, walk a few blocks south to the public courts. Alternatively, you can walk a few blocks east to Central Park. It feels that you are in the middle of nature, while living in the heart of Manhattan. It is close to public transportation, food shopping, restaurants, entertainment centers, Columbia University's campus and much more. There is an ongoing monthly capital contribution of $54.35.
