If one word comes to mind when looking at 1185 Park it’s “Grand”. One of the last of its kind, this Gothic-style perfect-square building takes up almost an entire block and boasts a large interior courtyard/driveway in it’s hallow center. This court leads to multiple lobbies with six elevators servicing two apartments on each floor. The building was built in 1928 and has some of Park Avenues largest apartments.
Many of the 165 units in 1185 Park have been renovated throughout the years, but they are all characterized by large foyers, lofty living rooms and innovative layouts. These apartments are spacious and classic, staying true to their original aesthetic design.
The handsome limestone and brick building stands 15 stories tall and features a gym. It is rumored that residents rarely use the treadmills in the gym as they conveniently have the running path along the reservoir in Central Park two blocks away. West of the building residents are also one block away from some of Madison Avenues most relished restaurants including Sarabeths, Jackson Hole and Pescalou. Not to mention a list of schools including Hunter College, Spence, and Nightingale-Bamford. East of the building residents can find bus services going uptown and downtown, the 6 train on Lexington Avenue and a bunch of convenience stores along Lexington and Third Avenue.
While this building is a co-op, an extensive application process awaits any interested buyers. When applying for an apartment in a co-op building, it is recommended prospective buyers work with a specialized realtor that will be able to assist them with not only negotiating a good price but with presenting their application in the best light.
