Property Description

Enjoy Riverside Park views and amazing sunsets from this Upper West Side, pre-war one bedroom. The moment you enter this charming apartment you are taken away by tree top views through oversized windows. Watch the seasons change in the comfort of your living room and bedroom. This lovely apartment boasts hardwood floors, an updated windowed bathroom, ample closets and a handsome custom armoire for additional storage. The current efficiency kitchen has plenty of cabinet storage and a dishwasher. Flooded with light and wonderfully peaceful, Apartment 303 isn't to be missed. Sorry, no dogs allowed at time of purchase. The building offers two elevators, a live-in super, full-time porter central laundry and entrances on Riverside Drive and 96th Street. Perfectly located along Riverside Drive and a few blocks away from the 1, 2 and 3 train station, Whole Foods, West Side Market, Trader Joe's, Citi Bike, Equinox, SoulCycle, NY Sports Club, numerous restaurants, shops and Columbia University. Originally built as an apartment hotel in 1914 known as Cliff Dwelling, 243 Riverside Drive was designed by architect Herman Lee Meader. The building sits on an irregular lot with the majority of apartments facing Riverside Park. Meader was intensely interested in Mayan and Aztec architecture. This influence is seen in the artwork throughout the terra cotta frieze of the building's facade where lions, double-headed snakes, and other imagery is incorporated. The lobby features wonderful geometric motifs that almost foreshadow the Art Deco style of the 1920s
