The Briarcliffe
171 W. 57th St., New York, NY

Built in the early 1920's, considered the "Golden Age" of apartment construction in Manhattan, The Briarcliffe at 171 West 57th Street is a classic luxury pre-war apartment building. The handsome exterior of limestone and masonry is adorned with inset limestone details. The original lobby is elegant and imposing, with floors and walls of imported black and white marble with an ornate crown molding. Traditionally home to people in the arts, The Briarcliffe is located in the midst of Manhattan's cultural attractions - across the street from Carnegie Hall with its lovely Italian Renaissance facade, and within walking distance to Lincoln Center, City Center and the Broadway Theater District. The Museum of Modern Art is a few blocks away, and Fifth Avenue's "Museum Mile" with its many museums is nearby. For grand living in the heart of Manhattan, no other building can match the beautiful pre-war condominium residences of The Briarcliffe.
