LIFE AT THE TOP: NEW YORK’S MOST EXCEPTIONAL APARTMENT BUILDINGS
Authors Kirk Henckels and Anne Walker of Life at the Top: New York’s Most Exceptional Apartment Buildings will take us through the evolution of the luxury Manhattan residence from the Victorian and Beaux Arts townhouses of the late 19th century into the elaborate, service-laden apartment buildings of the 20th and 21st centuries. The rise of the luxury apartment building began at the end of the 19th century with the Dakota and Osborne and exploded in the 1920s with such buildings as 960 Fifth, 740 Park Avenue and River House on the Upper East Side. Now, in the 21st century, we have seen a shift in the paradigm of luxury residential living to extremely tall modern towers with an abundance of services and sports facilities, especially in midtown and downtown locations. Join us as chronicle how these luxury apartments evolved over the last 130 years in terms of architecture, interior design, layout and location.
