Condos and Condops on Upper Broadway on The Upper West Side

Real Estate Agent

Upper Broadway, Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York, NY

Broadway is the busiest boulevard on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Everything happens on The Boulevard.

Upper Broadway, the hub of the Upper West Side architecturally is an eclectic mix of pre war buildings with modern luxury full service buildings.

The most famous condo on Broadway,The Ansonia is Broadway's most opulent structure. When The Ansonia opened in 1904 it was called: "The most technologically advanced apartment house in the world"

Apthorp Apartments, the elegant full-block apartment complex built by the Astor family for the New York elite has converted its 163 apartments to condominiums. The landmark 1908 building has two addresses 390 West End Avenue and 2201-2219 Broadway between west 79th and west 78th streets.

While there are some grand prewar condos and coops on upper Broadway many of the residential buildings are post war modern condos and condops that were built on the Broadway corridor in the west 80's and west 90's during the late 1980's. New construction condos and a rental building have recently been completed in the West 70's.

Post war Modern Condos and *Condops on Broadway from West 72nd Street to West 96th Street.

*Condop is a term for a residential building or portion of a building that includes both a condominium and cooperative ownership structure. Typically the condop refers to the residential portion of a building which is treated as a single condominium unit owned through a cooperative ownership structure.

As a long time Broadway resident myself, it is a true pleasure to walk along Broadway and take advantage of the well established retailers, and restaurants. My favorites are: Fairway, Zabars, Citarella, the famous H&H Bagels and my office The Corcoran Group -Westside Gallery are all located on Broadway in the heart of the Upper West Side. I love running into past and current clients, friends and colleagues on Broadway.

You can imagine my wonder when you realize that there are no buildings in DC higher than the Capitol Building, that's about 12-14 stories max. 

There are some higher ones in the suburbs in MD and VA, but height doesn't dominate here.  There are some condo buildings in Arlington that overlook the Potomac River and have lovely views of the Capitol and Monuments. 

New York City they are not.

Beautiful architecture in the best city in the world!  By the way, if you know of anyone looking to move to the Sunshine State, refer them to me and I will gladly pay a 30% referral fee on any resulting closed transaction.

Mitchell, great photos. A question: what does a concierge do for people in the building? I read one of your previous blogs that mentioned a concierge, so am curious!

Hi Laurie,

The concierge sits behind a console. They are there 24 hours. They have keys, they take packages, deliveries, dry cleaning they ring you when a guest or delivery arrives. You can have them do many things. You call them when something is not working. They will get a porter or handyman etc.

The doorman on the other hand stands at the front door and greets people, gets you a cab, helps you out of a cab or car with your packages or luggage.

In my building they no longer open the door since we upgraded to electric automatic doors. They wave and say hello and welcome home. After midnight in my building the doorman leave. The front door is locked. The concierge buzzes you in from his desk. If someone is a visitor they call the resident and announce the visitor.

My day concierge Vinnie. He is on duty from 7:30 am until 4pm. Then there is a concierge from 4pm to midnight and another one comes on from midnight until 7:30 am.

Thanks Mitchell for the great photos... and, yes, I miss Zabar's and H&H bagels alot!  I almost always make a trip to the Upper West Side when I'm in town to get my fix... nobody does bagels like H&H.

Those are terrific photos of the west side.  Westchester just has  a very few high rise buildings..and they aren't really that high when compared to Manhattan...Great review....

Mitchell.. Not working in a city (frankly I think NYC is the ONLY true city on the east coast), I've never heard of simplexes. Yes, I've heard of duplexes, co-ops, and penthouses.  What is a simplex?

Valerie, A simplex is opposite of a duplex, the entire apartment is in the same floor.
