The Ansonia stands out as one of The Upper West Side's premier prewar condominium buildings. Steeped in history, having been home to many celebrated residents including Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, Gustav Mahler, Arturo Toscanini, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Igor Stravinsky. The building was later known as the home of the Continental Baths where Bette Midler and Barry Manilow performed early in their careers. It was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1980 and was converted to a condominium in 1992. The exquisite Beaux-Arts facade, ultra-wide hallways, and opulent grand staircase make it one of the most beautiful, recognizable, and unique buildings in New York.

There is an ongoing assessment of $239 a month and the monthly real estate taxes reflect that it is rented through the end of January 2023. 24 hours notice required to view.

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.
