The Apthorp

The Apthorp is one of the rare New York City apartment buildings to occupy an entire city block. The magnificent Renaissance Revival building was designed by architects Clinton & Russell, was built between 1906 and 1908, and occupies the full block between Broadway (New York City) and West End Avenue and between 78th and 79th streets. The building is built around a huge interior courtyard.

In 2008 the building, which had been rental, became a condominium. The asking prices, nearly $3,000 a square foot, or an average of $6.5 million per apartment, make it "one of the most expensive condominium converstion projects" ever, according to the New York Times.

The elegant wrought-iron gates feature an unusual and very peautiful pair of gazelles.

Notable residents include Nora Ephron Al Pacino, Conan O’Brien, Cyndi Lauper, Rosie O’Donnell, and 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft.
