One of the most influential post-war buildings in New York City, Manhattan House marked the beginning of International Style modernity in the city. Built in 1950 and designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and Mayers and Whittlesley, the landmarked building has been called "the most literal manifestation in New York of Le Corbusier's postwar conception of vertical living." The iconic full-block 19-story building contains 581 apartments, many with balconies and fireplaces. The condominium residence has been thoroughly renovated though its heritage as a modernist icon has been retained. Amenities include a full-time doorman, concierge, library and lounge, several gardens, balconies and windowed lobbies, a spa, a yoga studio on the rooftop level and a Roto Studio-designed children's playroom. This prime Lenox Hill/Upper East Side location puts residents a short distance from Central Park as well as Madison Avenue shopping and restaurants, convenient public transportation and all that this highly desirable neighborhood has to offer.
