Today's Featured Building: Bolivar

Entrance canopy
Bolivar is well dressed in red brick and terracotta. It was built in 1926 as an apartment and has been helping its impressive neighbors in the Upper West Side stand guard over Central Park ever since. Neighbors such as the Beresford a block away, the San Remo a few blocks north, and the Alden.

It's a distinguished building with corners and windows trimmed out with a light, almost white terracotta creating a striking contrast against the red [brick]]s.

The Upper West Side (UWS), has many of these architectural treasures throughout the neighborhood. Sometimes the sheer subtlety and simplicity of design may cause these gems to "hide in plain sight", so to speak. This 15 story structure was converted into a cooperative in 1984 and many new touches were added or upgraded.[1]

Bolivar contains 156 apartments, largely studios and one bedroom units, ideal for first timers, pied-à-terre, and couples.
