Built in 1926, the 239 Central Park West was designed by Sugarman & Berger who is also responsible for designing a wide array of other residential buildings such as 45 Fifth Avenue, One Fifth Avenue, 340 Riverside Drive, 25 East 86th Street, 685 West End Avenue, and the White House apartments in Manhattan. Therefore, the design was really meant for New York style living. The structure’s façade is made of beige brick. There are single apartments and duplexes to choose from. A few features of the units are formal dining rooms and wood-burning fireplaces. The building allows protruding air-conditioners. Public transportation will not be a problem for the residents because it is close to a cross-town bus service and subway station.
