No building on Central Park
West has more balconies fronting on Central Park than this 25-story
tower, the second-tallest post-World War II residential tower
on the avenue.
The balconies are clearly
the main attraction in this beige-brick building that bears little
trace of the fabulous architectural heritage of Central Park West's
great residential towers. The south corner balconies wrap around
the corner to take maximum advantage of the spectacular views
and these apartments are extremely desirable. It is directly across
68th Street from the Second Church of Christ, Scientist, a green-domed
low-rise religious structure that affords this building improved
Its location, close to Lincoln
Center and the park transverse roads, is hard to beat, however,
and it has a large and attractive lobby.
Built in 1967, the building's
173 apartments were converted to cooperatives in 1979.
