The History

The Apthorp is one of New York City’s true landmarks, treasured for its Italian Renaissance Revival architecture. The architectural highlights include its iconic iron entry gates, richly ornamented limestone facade and private courtyard drive. Conceived in 1908 as the largest, most ambitious apartment house ever built, each of its apartments were unique designs, created with the kind of craftsmanship that today cannot be purchased for any price.

The Restoration

The Apthorp has been newly renovated, meticulously restored and brought with care and grace into the 21st century. Major capital improvements include a new HVAC system that affords year round climate control, new copper domestic hot and cold water risers, and upgraded electrical capacity. Technology upgrades include CAT5E wiring and FiOS capabilities.

Under the direction of Stephen Sills, Creative Director, the team of George Bridge and Greg Yale have re-imagined The Apthorp’s courtyard in a stately yet contemporary design accented with magnolia trees, evergreens and subtle lighting.
