A Lasting Heritage
Designed by renowned architect Ernest Flagg, 30 Morningside Drive occupies an entire city block front on Morningside Park, surrounded by its own landscaped gardens. This is Pre-war architecture at its finest, with ceiling heights in excess of eleven feet, spacious floor plans and large windows, with many homes enjoying terraces and direct park views of both Morningside Park and Central Park.
This magnificent structure has been painstakingly restored, both inside and out, and renovated with the highest quality interior finishes. The gracious amenities package includes a rooftop terrace with sweeping views of both Morningside Park and Central Park, interior landscaped courtyard, billiards room, 3000 plus square foot fitness center, motion studio, pet spa, residents’ lounge, private dining and conference center with kitchen, library, and a fully attended lobby with attentive concierge staff.
“The best art, and the only art which will ever lead to great results, must have for its basis the interpretation of beauty in nature.”
Built between 1896 and 1928 and now a designated historical landmark, the buildings of 30 Morningside were first designed by noted architect Ernest Flagg and reimagined by award-winning architect CetraRuddy. The Beaux Arts quintet—four pavilion towers and central carriage house—exemplify eclectic turn-of-the-century French style with classical lines and symmetry accented with bravura gothic flourishes. All of 30 Morningside’s original finishes, limestone façade, wrought iron ornamentals, and verdigris, have been meticulously conserved and restored to their Gilded Age grandeur.
