Welcome to 55 Central Park West, an Art Deco gem along New York's glorious Central Park West. Built in 1929, designed by architects Schwartz & Gross, the building is classic in every sense, from its gracious fully-restored lobby to its soaring spires, where you can enjoy a fully landscaped rooftop terrace, vegetable garden and wet bar with panoramic views of Central Park. Colloquially known as "the Ghostbuster building" - the plot of the 1984 comedy revolves heavily around it - prior residents include Ginger Rogers, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, and Broadway composer, Jerry Herman. A true NYC landmark.

Apartment 2B is a spacious one-bedroom home with period details throughout, ideal for entertaining. Enter through a gracious foyer that leads you into a dropped living room and original wrought iron railings, with plenty of room for living and dining and oversize windows looking onto a beautiful tree-lined street with adjacent views to Central Park. A large bedroom with three closets comfortably allows room for a king-size bed with night stands, and room for a home office. The Jack-and-Jill bath with its original cast iron tub is easily accessible from the living area for guests, and allows privacy to your bedroom. The windowed galley kitchen, separate from the dinning and living area, is fully equipped and awaits your finishing touches.

55 CPW has a modernized infrastructure, which received an "A" grade from NYC for energy efficiency, and offers full accessibility, new heating, water, fire and electrical systems, new elevators, a back-up power generator and a co-generation plant. The building maintains a full-service staff, including two full-time doormen, a live-in Resident Manager, and a Building Link Communication system. Other amenities include a laundry room, bike room, package room, playroom, and private storage units.55 Central Park West has excellent access to public transportation and is conveniently located across from Tavern on the Green in Central Park. It's just a block away from Lincoln Center and close to the shops at Columbus Circle, including Whole Foods Market, and numerous fine restaurants. Flip tax is 2% paid by buyer. Building is pet and pied-a-terre friendly.
