residentialUpper East Side Apartmenthide
For owners of this 2,000 square foot pied-a-terre, the process and product were about personal enjoyment. The Upper East Side one-bedroom gave them the relaxed elegance they wanted, barring any recognition of resale or outside opinion.
Madison Avenue was not part of the original New York City street grid established in the Commissioners’ Plan of 1811 – it was carved between Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue in 1836, due to the effort of lawyer and real estate developer Samuel B. Ruggles, a graduate of Yale University who had previously purchased and developed New York’s Gramercy Park in 1831, who was in part responsible for the development of Union Square and the name Lexington Avenue.Architect: Matt Wilkie
