116 Central Park South
Erected in 1962 and designed by Zareh Sourian, the Park House was built originally intended to be an apartment building which was eventually converted to the condominium that it is in 1988 with 17 stories and 79 units. It boasts of a modern lobby with vaulted ceilings. The design is unusually beautiful, with the lobby set-back from the building line and alternating inset balconies. The structure itself is made of gray-brick and is designed like an Italian Renaissance Palace which easily stands out among the other modern building beside it. The Park House is also noticeable among a strip of buildings beside it because of its narrowness. It boasts of a great location near some of the most elegant dining and shopping areas in New York. The view from the condominium units are impeccable – with Central Park and it’s beautiful skyline, especially at night, going from Central Park West to Fifth Avenue.
