The Ansonia, designed by noted architect Paul Duboy, opened in 1904 as a luxury hotel stretching along Broadway between 73rd and 74th streets. By the 1970s it was converted into rental apartments and it is now a designated Landmark on the Upper West Side.

    Beautiful and bold architecture. What a sizzling hotel this must have been in its day. Thank you Sherry–

      If you follow the link the list price for a one bed apartment is around $850,000. When I have some spare change I’ll give it a try.

    The bottom foto on the left row looks very interesting to me, the dark ceiling and the natural light on the sides – wow, beautiful!

      If you open it you should be able to see it is an awning over the entry way. I like the atmosphere it creates.
