At around 300 square feet, this $345,000 Upper West Side studio may be tiny, but it makes the most of the space by taking advantage of the 11-foot-high ceilings by putting the sleeping loft above the kitchen and using every square inch to its max. However, the co-op, located at 203 West 87th Street, will only allow equally tiny pets.

Located on the top floor of a dreamy Upper West Side townhouse at 307 West 82nd Street, a block from Riverside Park, this two-bedroom duplex asking $1.475 million appears to be every inch the classic Manhattan co-op, from its blonde wood floors to subdued pale walls. But this uptown aerie speaks volumes in the form of a huge private wraparound roof terrace.

Antonio Banderas has just listed his park-front co-op in the Prasada at 50 Central Park West for $7.95 million. The actor purchased the nine-room co-op for $3.995 million in 2005, with his wife, Melanie Griffith, according to the Wall Street Journal. The couple divorced in 2016 and Banderas, who is starring in the upcoming “Life Itself” with Olivia Wilde and Oscar Isaac, kept the stylish Upper West Side home.

As one of New York City’s many hidden-in-plain-sight secret addresses, Pomander Walk is a gated 1920s community of Tudor-style mini-homes resembling an English village nestled right in the middle of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The brightly-painted home at 265 West 94th Street, asking $2.5 million, is a rarely-available opportunity to live in this unique village-in-the-city community.

Following year-long resistance from the Trump Organization, a judge ruled on Thursday that an Upper West Side condo could remove the president’s name from the exterior of the 46-story building, according to the New York Times. Condo owners at 200 Riverside Boulevard will now be able to vote on whether to keep or remove the bronze letters spelling “TRUMP” on the building, where they have hung for nearly two decades. The ruling comes after board members at Trump Place asked a judge in January to issue a declaratory judgment that the condo has the right to either keep or remove the letters without violating its licensing agreement. On Thursday, Justice Eileen Bransten said removing letters does not violate the agreement.

In February of 2017, residents of Trump Place at 200 Riverside Boulevard voted to remove “TRUMP” from the condo building’s exterior. Neighboring buildings found at 140, 160, and 180 Riverside Boulevard had already successfully removed his name, following a petition with hundreds of signatures. However, the 48-story condo at Trump Place, located on the Upper West Side, has not moved forward with the removal of the president’s name because the Trump Organization threatened to sue.

In response to this threat, board members in January asked a judge to issue a declaratory judgment that the condo has the right to either keep or remove the letters without violating its licensing agreement. The president’s son, Eric Trump, who serves as a trustee of the organization, promised on Monday to “fight vehemently against rogue individuals” who want to remove the name (h/t West Side Rag).

Surrounding the American Museum of Natural History, the Theodore Roosevelt Park stretches from 77th to 81st Streets between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. For years, the city has fenced off its green space, not allowing park visitors to touch the lawns. But this summer, as part of a pilot program, the city’s parks department will open two lawns in the Upper West Side park, according to the West Side Rag. From Memorial Day Weekend until September 30, the Northwest and Southwest Lawns will open to the public, officials announced at a community board meeting.

Built in 1887 by local builder William Noble, this remarkable Queen Anne mansion at 248 Central Park West has been painstakingly restored by its owners in a $10 million gut renovation, with its stunning details preserved and every modern luxury–including an elevator, a 50-foot lap pool in the cellar, a top floor penthouse, a home theater and a gym. As the New York Times tells us, it’s one of only three houses built in the surrounding Upper West Side historic district at the time. On the market for the first time since 2004, it’s asking $29 million.

For such a stereotypically well-off and elegant neighborhood, the Upper West Side certainly has its share of much-less-than-glamorous listings. A couple months ago, we featured a 68-square-foot (yes, you read that right) SRO with a communal bathroom that was asking a whopping $950 a month. Now, a similarly dismal pad has hit the market asking $1,000 a month (h/t Brick Underground)! Though the listing doesn’t reveal its square footage, it does make sure to specify, “this is not a studio it is a single room” and that it has a shared bathroom. But it also is quick to gloat that the “dorm-style” home comes with a mini fridge and hot plate.

As with most of the homes in the unique–even for New York City–Hotel des Artistes building at 1 West 67th Street, this amazing Central Park West triplex must be seen to be believed. The sprawling 5,500 square-foot co-op has room after room of remarkable features–greenhouse bathroom, anyone?–and every inch of the home’s gorgeous interiors reflects a brilliant eye for style. Just a few more amazing spaces include a 44-foot-long living room, a sprawling terrace with a fire pit, two offices and  several balconies.
