This is all in the exquisite Del Monte, built in 1892 and located on the southwest corner of tree-lined West 75th Street and Columbus Avenue. The Del Monte, which was converted to cooperative in 1985, was originally designed as a 7 story Renaissance/Romanesque Revival Style building by architect Gilbert Schellinger. In recent years, the allure of the location coupled with the shareholders efforts to create and maintain the quintessential residence, a growing number of the homes (once subdivided) are being re-combined. The shareholders underwent a renovation of the window-lit hallways and the commodious lobby, staying quite true to its original design, including the Pre-war crown moldings and a restoration of the beautiful and original historic mosaic floor. It is an elevator building with video security, live-in super, porter, bike room and laundry room. There is also some additional storage; however, there is a small waiting list. This intimate building now consists of 50 units and is located in a vibrant neighborhood just a few blocks from Central Park, Riverside Park, Fairway, Citarella, Trader Joes, Zabars, The Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, the 1,2,3,B & C Subway Lines, cross-town busses, the Sunday Flea Market & Farmer's Market and all of this is along Columbus Avenues varied Shopping District with every boutique you could imagine.
