Upper West Side, New York City: 30 reviews and 73 photos
Yet another landmark residential building on Central Park West, the San Remo is known for its monumental twin towers. The building was designed by the architect, Emery Roth who also designed The Beresford up the street, and was completed in 1929. Unfortunately, the San Remo opened just in time for the Great Depression which led the building to face financial difficulties in the following decade and many of its large opulent apartments/flats were divided to make them more affordable.
