For over a century, The Apthorp has been a celebrated yet serene enclave in the heart of New York’s Upper West Side. Conceived in 1908 as the largest, most ambitious apartment house ever built, each of its apartments were unique designs, created with the kind of craftsmanship that today cannot be purchased for any price.
In the midst of Manhattan’s most classic and vibrant residential neighborhood, here is a place apart. The Apthorp’s four lobbies are entered from a beautifully landscaped private courtyard; each landing provides access to only three to five residences. And those residences — spacious and light filled, no two alike — have been newly renovated, meticulously restored, and brought with care and grace into the 21st century.
Today, a selection of residences is available for purchase. Here is a rare opportunity to live in a true New York City landmark that must be seen to be believed.
