Property Description

All showings conducted by appointment. This includes open houses.

Commanding open southern and western exposures over the Hudson River, this sunny, generously-sized, gut-renovated split 2 Bedroom has it all plus a location that cannot be beat.

Upon entry, guests are greeted by a formal foyer and entry gallery complete with extra-deep coat closet and powder room. From the gallery, the eye is immediately drawn to a wall of oversized windows framed by striking Hudson River views. To the left, a gut-renovated, open kitchen boasts an extra-large peninsula island adorned with white Macaubas vein cut marble, breakfast bar, storage, and a Miele wine refrigerator. The windowed kitchen also offers up abundant custom cabinetry, JennAir refrigerator and dishwasher, Wolf stovetop, Verona oven, under-cabinet lighting, and more counter space than one could possibly need. The kitchen overlooks a large dining area perched on the southwest corner of the apartment. A large glass sliding door opens out on to your own private balcony with 180 degree views of The Hudson River, Riverside Drive, and the park below. A graciously-proportioned living room rounds out this impressive entertaining space where sunsets will captivate you and your guests every evening.

On either side of the entry gallery, two en suite bedrooms await. The guest bedroom features a sunny southern exposure, en suite bath, and double closets. The king-sized primary suite faces west taking advantage of unobstructed river views. Space and storage are plentiful, as the suite plays host to three closets and an en suite bath with walk in shower.

Other notable features of this home include an in-unit washer dryer (plus a private laundry room on every floor), motorized shades in every room, brand new windows with treated glass to protect precious artwork & collectables, three zone thermostat-controlled heat and air conditioning, exquisite hardwood floors, and an option to purchase fully furnished with brand new furniture by Roche Bobois.

60 Riverside Drive is a prominent, full-service, pet friendly coop with an instantly-recognizable facade and one of only a handful which offer private balconies for corner apartments. Shareholders enjoy a renovated lobby, brand new hallways, a combination bike/storage room and on-site parking garage (wait list). Minutes to the 79th street crosstown bus and #1 subway, commuting almost anywhere in Manhattan is a breeze. Located across the street from Riverside Park and mere blocks from both The Museum of Natural History & the shops/restaurants along Columbus & Amsterdam Avenues, you will absolutely fall in love with this location and all the Upper West Side has to offer.

Note: There is a special assessment of $216/month. 80% financing permitted. Pied-a-terres are not allowed.

Two Beds in Upper West Side


Upper West Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Bracketed on its east and west borders by massive city parks, the Upper West Side (UWS) is known for its greenery, stately and elegant townhomes, safe streets and great schools, all of which make it a very desirable neighborhood for families. The UWS has maintained its community feeling, making it attractive to young professionals and retirees, both of whom want a sense of belonging in the place they call home.

Here you’ll find many apartment buildings, especially those along Central Park West. Historic architecture abounds, anchored by four luxury co-ops - the San Remo, Majestic, Century and Eldorado apartments - all of which have two towers on their interiors. They were built in the 1930s and their design was predicated on a 1929 building code that imposed a height limit on residences facing the street. There are also impressive row houses near Riverside Drive throughout the W 70 and 80 Streets. Above the 90s, you will find smaller buildings where walk-ups are very reasonably priced.

There are several world-class museums and venues dedicated to the performing arts. Plentiful dining can be found in the UWS. You will find everything from quaint Jewish delis serving up bagels and a schmear to sophisticated fine dining that has earned multiple Michelin stars, and everything you could possibly want in between. There is also abundant shopping and a vibrant nightlife.
