Property Description

As you enter this beautiful apartment, you are overwhelmed by the 16’ living room ceilings and open city views, through a wall of over-sized windows. This special pre-war 2bedroom/2bath duplex with double height ceilings is located in the heart of the Upper West Side. Off the expansive living room is a separate dining area, kitchen and a large den or second bedroom and full bath. The generous master bedroom with en suite bath and double sinks with a jacuzzi and shower is located on the second floor along with an enormous walk-in closet and storage. Located minutes from Central Park, Lincoln Center, and The Hudson River Greenway, The Pythian is a full service condominium with a long history. Designed by Thomas W. Lamb and built in 1927, it was occupied by the Knights of Pythias until the 1940’s when it became the headquarters for Decca Records. Buddy Holly, Sammy Davis Jr., and Billie Holiday are some of the great names who recorded their hits here for the next 15 years. Following its use as the New York Institute of Technology’s main campus in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the building was converted into condominiums in 1986 after an award winning redesign by renowned architect David Gura. To this day, its striking façade and architectural features make it a stand out landmark and an Upper West Side icon. Amenities include: full-time doorman, live- in super, porter, laundry room, kids playroom, storage and a brand new gym. There is an assessment of $240.81 per month.
