Stepping into 780 West End Avenue will take residents back to a bygone era

780 West End Avenue was completed in 1912. Despite just celebrating its one hundredth birthday, it remains as opulent today as the day it opened. Located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, this address is close to the renowned shopping offered on Broadway while still being close to Riverside Park.

This building was converted into condominiums in 1988. The building itself maintains its old world charm and residents will feel as if they have been transported back in time to a bygone era. 780 West End Avenue is an example of the many buildings in New York City that have stood the test of time.

A stroll down any street in New York City will reveal amazing architectural history. Just be wary about then buildings you do approach. New York City recently revised Local Law 11 in response to the alarming amount of facade collapse that were occurring as a direct result of its aging architecture.

New York City prides itself on its ability to reinvent itself time after time. 780 West End Avenue is a prime example since this building that just celebrated its centennial birthday, is still a modern condominium building offering all the modern trappings found in our 21st century society. However the biggest convenience is this building's location, with all the conveniences of restaurants, shopping and services on Broadway just one block to the east.
