There are many things to love about the Upper West Side. The view usually isn’t one of them. But with this apartment’s sweeping views of the Hudson River and the park, you won’t need to cover these windows with curtains.
There are more reasons to gush about this condo at 190 Riverside Drive, such as the prewar interior that’s not even the slightest bit dingy. Or the fact that you’re a quick hop from the best shops and restaurants that the sleepy UWS has to offer.
With five bedrooms, this is certainly best suited for the neighborhood’s stroller set. And since the building is full of law firm partners, you’re pretty much guaranteed there will be no celebrity antics on quiet Friday evenings in.
Given the impressive résumé, this apartment might just justify Corcoran's claim that it's “the best the Upper West Side has to offer”—not to mention its $8.85 million price tag. —Laura Kusisto
