SUNNY and large one bedroom on the SECOND floor (1P is ONE FLIGHT ABOVE the main floor) of 790 Riverside Drive, the legendary Riviera. This is a much sought-after line in that it is the only relatively small apartment in the entire building with complete external exposure. It faces south and west, and you can see a bit of the Hudson River, planted medians, big sky and the beautiful stonework engraving on a Cass Gilbert designed building that is part of the Audubon Terrace cultural complex that is one of New York's unknown treasures. The bedroom has two large deep closets, and tons of space for any other kind of furniture. The marble bathroom boasts a large modern soaking tub, and a grey marble floor which imitates traditional 8-sided bathroom floor tiles. The kitchen has a very wide south facing window, marble counters and the appliances are stainless and include a dishwasher. The cabinets go right up to the 9 foot ceilings. Outside the bedroom, there is a recessed area for a home-office or a Murphy bed. The full service, 110-year-old, 24hr doorman, marble lobbied grand dame of a building is also an extremely DOG FRIENDLY COOP WITH NO SIZE OR BREED RESTRICTIONS. The Riviera has bike storage, locker storage, a large staff including a resident super and a building manager who will answer your Friday night emails on Saturday morning. It is one of the cornerstones of the landmarked Audubon Park Historic District built where once stood the farm of the famous bird painter, John James Audubon. Being on 157th Street, means you are beyond the Manhattan grid. There are swirling streets and beautiful architecture --but you are still exactly one block from the 1 train and a just a few more from the C and the A trains. There is access to the Hudson River Bike Path, the GWB, and the building lies in the "Columbia Sandwich," an area that will always hold its value. The Riviera is 10 blocks from ever-expanding New York Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia Medical Center, and 20 blocks from the new Columbia Manhattanville campus where graduate schools are relocating one after the next. City College is one mile away, and the apartment is a few blocks from the explosion of restaurants, cafes and bars of Hamilton Heights, a conversion that is hard to imagine if you have not yet seen it.
