52 East 78th Street is one of two prewar buildings comprising The Finch co-operative, formerly the home of Finch College, a women's private school whose alumni include the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Whitneys, and Isabella Rossellini. Upon the closing of its doors in 1975, the red brick and limestone buildings were converted into apartments.
Making life here even more attractive are the amenities, and the excellent location.

Pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing, subletting and pets are allowed with board approval. The prime Upper East Side address is on a lovely block less than 2 blocks from Central Park. Also near Lenox Hill Hospital, the renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art, Met Breuer, Frick and Guggenheim, world-class hotels, art galleries, fine dining and Madison Avenue shopping.
