Upper East Side beauty – former Westbury hotel building

This red-brick building along one of the city’s most chic stretches was converted into condominium apartments from a hotel in 1999. The building’s facade was cleaned but not substantially altered as it is within an historic landmark district.

The former hotel was always understated but attracted a very elegant and discrete clientele, including members of the Mellon family, because of its superb location and the fact that there were only two other major large luxury hotels on the Upper East Side, the Carlyle a few blocks north on Madison Avenue and the Stanhope on Fifth Avenue at 81st Street.

The 21-story building has only 47 apartments.
