128 Central Park South
Designed in an Italian-Renaissance-palazzo manner in 1924 and transformed into a cooperative in 1984, 128 Central Park South is a work of beauty with large pictures windows centrally located in its façade and handsome quoins made of limestone with a canopied two story decorative entrance of flanking lanterns. Displaying balustraded balconies on the 4th and 12th floors and a modern lobby allure people to this masterpiece as well as the gorgeous Skyline and Central Park views of Upper Fifth Avenue and Central Park West.
From a far, the flat roofline embellished with intricate and detailed decoration is seen, together with the structure’s elegant penthouse, which features a complete landscape, terrace, Asian style decoration, three fireplaces, and an electronic skylight.
With 16 stories and 56 units, aside from the one penthouse, residents and guests can choose from one or two bedroom units of their liking. Apartments range in size from approximately 750 to 1,600 square feet and are quite spacious allowing for great conversions from 1 to 2 bedroom apartments. Most residences feature prewar detail including beamed ceilings and fireplaces. Some of the apartments include outdoor space.
