Fine cuisine is a staple of New York City living. This multicultural city is home to an array of dinning options from all walks of life.

Construction

Original rendition of the community encompassing 100 West 93rd Street

The condominium building at 100 West 93rd Street began its life in 1972 as part of the West Side Urban Renewal District. This area had been in decline for decades prior. As a means to reverse the neighborhood's fortune, the City of New York designated the area as a district slated for renewal.

100 West 93rd Street is a concrete structure with 280 units spread over 32 floors. Its units are offered in one, two or three bedroom configurations with many of the units having exterior patios.

The building was converted into a condominium complex in 2007 and many of its units have been completely renovated. The lobby has also been renovated and each unit has large windows allowing for ample sunlight to flow generously through their open layouts.[3]

Sustainability

Environmental sustainability is an important issue in New York City. While 100 West 93rd Street wasn't built with any sustainable methods during its construction in 1968, some measures were taken during its conversion to condominiums in 2007. Sustainable building materials such as bamboo flooring was installed in many of the units.

Of course the best way to increase the environmentally sustainability of a building is to utilize the recycling programs offered. New York City is one of the leaders when it comes to keeping waste out of the landfill. Aside from traditional recycling service, the New York Department of Sanitation offers outlets to dispose of obsolete electronics as well as an extensive composting program. [5]

Trivia

100 West 93rd Street was built as part of the West Side Urban Renewal District.

100 West 93rd Street was constructed as part of an urban renewal campaign titled the West Side Urban. The blocks between West 87th and West 97th Streets from Amsterdam Avenue to Central Park West was home to 40,000 residents by 1956. When the area's acute social and physical decline indicated a need for public action, these neighborhoods were designated as the West Side Urban Renewal Area.

Steps were taken to ensure an economic and social mix within the district by providing low rent projects but also low rent family developments within middle income developments. The results are most visible architecturally along Columbus avenue which is lined with similar looking high rise buildings.

Planning for the West Side Urban Renewal District began in the 1950s, but the final plan, which included the building of 7,800 new apartments, the rehabilitation of 350 brownstones and the conservation of some 3,600 existing apartments, was not adopted by the Board of Estimate until June 27, 1962. While there are no architectural masterpieces in the renewal district, it has aged rather well as the surrounding neighborhoods have become more gentrified.

Manhattan received its name from its original Algonquin inhabitants. It means island of hills in their native language.[6]
