The Hudson River is a rhapsody in blue when viewed from the wraparound terrace of George and Ira Gershwin's former duplex penthouse on Riverside Drive. The 3BR/2.5BA co-op unit sits atop 33 Riverside Drive, where the terrace looks down on the 79th Street boat basin and Riverside Park. George and Ira Gershwin lived in the pre-war doorman building in 1930, when they wrote "Girl Crazy"

Listing for just under $2.5 million, the co-op duplex's historic ties to the past could warrant a renovation and restoration by a motivated buyer. The main floor includes the master suite and open living and dining areas. Downstairs there are two more bedrooms, a home office, and a marble bath. 33 Riverside Drive has a doorman, an attended lobby, and is pet friendly.
