Top 10 Central Park West Apartment Buildings

Although Fifth Avenue is pretty well known internationally as a respectable address, the Top 10 Central Park West apartment buildings really come on strong in the current home stretch.  Its line-up is a murderers’ row of really impressive and interesting New York City apartment buildings.  Some of them, of course, are ageless veterans, but they have true architectural heart, if not grit.  Sort of reminds one of the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers: incomparable even if they lost to the Yankees. C’mon, you didn’t think all the people on Central Park West rooted for the Yankees?  They’re just in the mood for greatness, even if it vanished, which is pretty astounding, gosh darn!

#1 - The Dakota, 1 West 72nd Street

This boulevard's many multi--towered residential skyscrapers cannot bully aside its grand dame, the legendary Dakota, home to John Lennon, perhaps the city's most desirable residence for its inestimable character, as opposed to charm.
