Street View of 75 Central Park West

Bordering the lush city oasis of Central Park, 75 Central Park West provides a historic twist to a modern doorman cooperative building. This residential structure was constructed in 1929 and continues to offer 57 Upper West Side residences over its 16 floors.

Said to be a "perfect example of a dream Manhattan residence," this building offers character and historic charm from street to roof-line. 75 Central Park West was designed by architect Rosario Candela, who was heavily involved in the designs of dozens of New York City projects during the 1920s and 1930s. With diverse experience ranging for striking flatiron buildings to relatively simple building designs, Candela provided a structure at Central Park West and West 67th Street that is notable for its attractive Neo-Renaissance style.

With expansive views of the city's (and perhaps country's) finest park and being within stumbling distance to its grounds, 75 Central Park West offers an ideal residential location nearby Lincoln Square, Broadway, and public transportation. With one to three bedroom residences being offered in the building, each home encompasses the meaning of luxury. The building comes complete with a full time doorman and concierge, elevator, basement storage, and central laundry.[1]

Location

With direct access to Central Park, residents of 75 Central Park West are unlikely to need to seek out other outdoor areas; but in case they would, one would be settled to know there are plenty more options. Richard Tucker Square provides a modest outdoor meeting place, as do Verdi Square and Sherman Square. The Seventieth Street Playground offers a great place for the Upper West Side children.

The building is situated within walking distance to Lincoln Square, where residents can enjoy the entertainment and theater shows provided at the many venues at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Columbus Circle is also located nearby, as are the many offerings found on Broadway. Less than three blocks away from the building is the metro subway station, providing convenient access to the surrounding neighborhoods. There are also other public transit options even closer.
