- Designed and built by architects Graves and Doboy in 1904 as an apartment hotel, this 17-story structure was the epitome of luxury during the early part of the century. Constructed with heavy, fireproof materials, the building is virtually sound proof, which has made it a favorite home to musicians, most notably Igor Stravinsky. The French design remains impressive even today, as the building stands as the centerpiece of this Upper West Side community. All this is on sale and available on rent, although not for commercial purposes at the present moment. The public is not allowed to enter, but the building itself is worth a visit to look at.
