The Stanhope: a rare 4-bedroom pre-war fully renovated (in 2015), mint, move-in Cond-op (Co-op with condominium rules) designed in 1926 by Rosario Candela - the renowned architect responsible for many of New York's most prestigious buildings.

A separate formal dining room or den flows beautifully for perfect circulation. Gleaming Mahogany wood flooring features in the reception rooms and hallways.
