Today's Featured Building: Apple Bank Building

Originally called the Bloomingdale District, the area was the sight of some of New York City’s most stunning houses and mansions by the 18th century. A hundred years later, high levels of immigration and commercialization along the Hudson River had led to much denser populations, and certain areas had moved towards the lower and working classes.

The Apple Bank Building centered among its neighbors
By the 20th century, the Upper West Side had been home to large communities of nearly every demographic, including African Americans, Orthodox Jews, and gay men. Neighborhood gentrification and recent urban renewal programs have restored the Upper West Side to its designation as a high end neighborhood, with a reputation of attracting cultural and artistic workers.[1]

Residents of the Apple Bank Building have the distinction of living in one of New York City’s landmark buildings, as well as the good fortune of living on one of the most prominent intersections of New York City.

Originally commercial space described as “one of the area’s noblest and most imposing edifices”, the Apple Bank Building’s upper floors were converted into condominium residences in 2006, offering buyers a chance to literally live in a piece of New York history.[2]
