This amazing apartment is housed in an 1885 landmark building on the National Register of Historic Places, called by Connoisseur Magazine “New York’s most enviable address.” Greeted by a doorman, one enters a tile- and glass-encrusted Renaissance Revival jewel box created by J.A.Holzer, later the head of the Louis Comfort Tiffany's mosaic studio. The New York Times has called it the city’s most beautiful lobby.
With a ceiling height of over 14 feet, this majestic home has retained all of its Victorian opulence - hand-carved woodwork, shuttered bay windows, parquet floors and stained glass windows marked Tiffany & Co. This apartment was the height of luxury in 1885 and so it remains today.
Living/Dining Room - This room’s Bradbury & Bradbury wallpapered ceiling is true to the time. It looks down on a rare 7-piece Herts Brothers’ parlor set, a William Morris carpet in his original colors, an Orientalist seating niche, Wooton desk, leather-topped Aesthetic Movement table and fine 19th century art, sculpture and accessories.
Bedroom/Study - The centerpiece of this dramatic room is an imposing Allen & Co. bed which has been richly accessorized to maximize both comfort and luxury. Along with a fine dresser, the room boasts an elegant 1880’s desk, well-stocked bookshelves and cable television. The room is lit by crystal and glass fixtures of the period.
Kitchen - It's granite countertop, dishwasher, stainless steel sink and Grohe faucet provide contemporary ease of living. Stained glass windows echo its history.
Bathroom - The cream-colored tiled bath with lincrusta walls has a pedestal sink and luxurious glass-enclosed shower with an overhead thermostatic fixture by Barber-Wilson.
This magnificent property sits across the street from Carnegie Hall and a short stroll to the Theater District in one direction and Lincoln Center in the other.
Steps away from the 57th Street art galleries, the Museum of Art & Design and the Museum of Modern Art among other cultural attractions.
Two blocks from Central Park and a delightful stroll to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Subways and buses to all parts of the city stop right outside its door.

We stayed at this fantastic apartment and couldn't have been more pleased with the location and accessibility to everything that we were interested in seeing. It provided an easy walk to the Times Square area, theaters, restaurants and Central Park. The building and apartment are very historic and Victorian in decor. The owners have recreated their unit to give the feel of the original construction refelecting the fact that this was one of the earliest luxury apartments built in New York city on 57th Ave. (Millionaires row).
We highly recommend using your credits on this unit...you won't be disappointed.
