The site is located on Broadway at the corner of West 81st Street. The structure’s exterior is clad in the architect’s signature warm-colored limestone and features a design that blends well with the local neighborhood. The closest subway is the 1 train at the 79th Street station. The American Museum of Natural History and Central Park are only a ten-minute walk to the east. A number of cafes, shops, and retail options line Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue nearby.

  1. sometimes RAMSA gets it right, and sometimes not: what is that receptionist desk… afterthought like the monster AC exposed on the roof?

    Another beautiful gem from Stern that offers an alternative to fish bowl living in a glass box.

  3. RAMSA is the only architect designing buildings whose design and appearance will endure beyond the current generation of flashy fast-buck scammer clients.
