Exclusive and intimate in equal measure, 888 Park Avenue contains relatively few apartments when compared with other co-operatives elsewhere on Park. This affords extra room to residents and ensures that each apartment in the building provides the sort of airy, grandiose luxury that one would expect from an apartment on Park Avenue.
The structure at 888 Park Avenue exudes glamor even before you set foot inside its grand lobby. The building’s red brick exterior and attention-grabbing cornice gives it a singular appearance and instantly sets it apart from its Park Avenue neighbors. Built in 1926 and designed by renowned architecture firm Schwartz & Gross, 888 Park Avenue features 48 apartment units across the building’s 14 stories.
An apartment in this building is ideally suited to those who appreciate the finer things in life. The building’s handsome two-storey limestone base only adds to the aesthetic grandeur mentioned above, while the fact that a wide arrange of cafés, art galleries and museums are located pretty much on your doorstep makes it easy to see why this building is one of the most prestigious on the Upper East Side.
Dog owners rejoice; pets are allowed in this co-operative with board approval. What’s more, Central Park’s East 79th Street entrance is only two blocks away, giving resident’s access to one of the most expansive dog walking areas anywhere in the city. Equally popular with joggers, cyclists and walkers, Central Park is the ideal place to catch up on your fitness or simply to escape from the stresses and strains of modern life in New York.
