Reminiscent to the nearby Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, The Park Ten is a high-rise cooperative building that is notable for its landscaped entrance with planted gardens, a running fountain, and a circular cobblestone driveway. Set on a quiet block in Lincoln Square, The Park Ten was designed by architect Ralph E. Leff.

Built in 1968, originally as a rental building, this 33 story tower was converted to its current ownership structure in 1981, and continues to stand as a sought-after residence today offering 274 units of varying sizes. Many luxury homes with expansive views of Central Park, the Hudson River, and the Manhattan Skyline can be found here, all of which have access to the luxury amenities such as the furnished rooftop deck, full-time doorman and concierge, fitness center, and on-site parking garage.

Although this building was once the focus of an investigation regarding fraud and money laundering, as written in a 1994 New York Times article, the building remains a predominant Upper West Side residence. Lincoln Square is a sought-after residential neighborhood that borders the highly-visited Central Park and is also very convenient to entertainment, shopping, restaurants and public transportation.[1]
