The living room, dining room and kitchen are formally aligned and flow into one another. All enjoy breathtaking views of Central Park's natural beauty and the architectural landscape of the midtown skyline.

A private elevator provides direct access between levels. The over-sized bedrooms have been thoughtfully pushed to the perimeters.
