The Ansonia, 2109 Broadway
In 1899 Phelps-Dodge copper heir & noted Upper West Side property developer William Earle Dodge Stokes commissioned Paul E. Duboy to design “the greatest and grandest” Beaux-Arts hotel. The iconic Ansonia, the first and largest residential hotel of its day, was completed in 1904. Boasting an ornate façade, imposing scale & a rich architectural and social history, in 1972 the Ansonia was designated a New York City landmark by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission, which called its effect one of "joyous exuberance profiled against the sky." This beautifully renovated condominium features a large living room, master bedroom and bath with high ceilings, elegant original details and hardwood floors. A superb chef’s kitchen offers a breakfast island with Caesarstone countertops, custom cabinetry and a full complement of fine appliances, including a 24-bottle wine cellar and laundry. Amenities include full-time doormen, concierge and superintendent, package room, roof deck & garage.
