What are New York City's best apartment buildings? Before 1900, it was the Dakota and the Osborne; soon after came McKim, Mead & White's magnificent Fifth Avenue buildings, followed by the true luxury edifices of the roaring 20's and the Art Deco era. Today, the City's skyline sparkles with palatial new buildings, such as Robert A. M. Stern's 15 Central Pak West, Richard Meier's glass-walled Perry Street towers, and 432 Park Avenue, New York's tallest residential building. Kirk Henckels and Anne Walker, real estate and architectural insiders, chronicle the fortunes and features of 15 outstanding apartment houses with a wealth of vintage and new photography and architectural plans, and show off select apartments as they look today, designed by top interior decorators.
