↑ Located in the Strathmore at 404 Riverside Drive, this two-bedroom co-op has original elements—oak cabinets, decorative tiles, plaster medallions—from when the building was constructed in the early 20th century. There's a separate "staff room" in addition to the apartment's two bedrooms.

↑ This pre-war penthouse unit at 309 West 86th Street has plenty of space for nature-lovers: there's a solarium (which the listing claims could be used as an extra bedroom), along with a roof terrace. There's also a wood-burning fireplace and lots of space throughout.
