Property description

My house is a five-story 1892 townhouse on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I had the ornate brownstone facade restored recently. It has eight apartments (I occupy the garden apartment). The house is part of a neighborhood of townhouses on the side streets, large multiple dwellings on the avenues, occasional grand apartment buildings on Central Park West, and some notable institutions such as the Museum of Natural History, New York Historical Society, the Children's Museum, and Lincoln Center dotted around the neighborhood. The area is well served by buses and subways, with a large population of restaurants of many different ethnicities and varying levels of sophistication. No area of Manhattan is far away in time or difficult to reach.

Car: Not Necessary

My house is a five-story,1892 townhouse on the Upper West Side of Manhattan that I bought 45 years ago. I had the ornate brownstone facade restored recently. It has eight apartments in it (I occupy the garden apartment), three of which I rent out as short term vacation homes. The house is part of a neighborhood of townhouses on the side streets, larger multiple dwellings on the avenues, occasional grand apartment buildings on Central Park West, and some notable institutions such as the Museum of Natural History and Lincoln Center dotted around the neighborhood. The area is well served by buses and subways, with a high population of restaurants of many different ethnicities and varying levels of sophistication. No area in Manhattan - be it the Theater District or the Village - is far away in time or difficult to reach.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: I bought this house 45 years ago because I was tired of moving around the world as a youngster - my parents were in the diplomatic corps and every two years we were in a different part of the world. In my career, I've been active in real estate activities involving rehabilitation and the use of alternative energy. My house is the first NYC townhouse to have a solar hot water system - 1977 - and it still works!

Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side:
At the time, I could only afford this dicey neighborhood, but I figured it would improve. And it has - a whole lot!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Safety, day and night; convenience to major Museum attractions, Lincoln Center, and Central Park; transportation up, down, and across town by bus and subway; Zabars and Fairway nearby; a slew of different restaurants from Sarabeth's to Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian, Peruvian, Spanish, Indian, etc;
