It’s the kind of jumbo pre-war classic co-op that has launched nearly a century of Manhattan fantasies–on the Upper West Side, no less. Asking $3,895,000, the 15th-floor apartment at 90 Riverside Drive, on the market for the first time in 50 years, has the pre-war size and city and river views that look just as enviable in the 21st century.
The three-bedroom co-op has plenty of space to accommodate the next owners’ vision–and the sweeping city and Hudson River views from the 15th floor never get old. Gracious rooms–including an entry foyer, staff room, and closets galore–provide the opportunity to re-configure the space in any number of ways.
The room-sized entry foyer opens into adjacent living and dining rooms with dazzling views. High, beamed ceilings and built-in shelving frame the rooms.
A huge windowed pass-through kitchen offers a washer and dryer. In classic form, a staff room (with a separate service entrance) that dwarfs most New York City bedrooms has a full bath as well.
The vast primary suite consists of an en-suite bathroom and two walk-in closets. This sunny chamber has open southern city and river views. The remaining two–also large–bedrooms share a bath and have plenty of closet space (including a cedar closet).
90 Riverside Drive is as much a classic outside as inside. The 16-story building, designed by Schwartz & Gross, was built in 1926 and converted to a co-op in 1968. Amenities include a 24-hour door attendant and concierge, a restored marble lobby, a landscaped roof terrace, a gym, a playroom, a half basketball court, storage, and a bike room. The pet- and pied-a-terre-friendly building also has a resident manager.
