Truly one of the grandest buildings in New York, the Prasada is one of three buildings that established Central Park West as an avenue of great prestige and is a wonderful example of Beaux-Arts architecture. Commissioned by the King of Spain, designed by Charles W. Romeyn & Henry R. Wynne, 50 Central Park West was built by Franklin & Samuel Haines beginning in 1905 and completed in 1907. The elegance and grand layouts of the building made the Prasada one of the first "high-rises" that drew wealthy individuals out of townhouse living. There are full time doormen and elevator operators, a resident manager, private storage bins, bike room, and a new state of the art gym is being built. Pets are permitted. Please call for a private appointment.
