Building Description

A national landmark located at 1 West 72nd Street on Manhattan's Upper West Side, The Dakota was designed by the architectural firm of Henry J. Hardenbergh, the same firm which was responsible for the design of the Plaza Hotel. The façade of The Dakota is filled with ornate finials, Gothic elements of design, and a manned sentry in the front entrance with oil-burning lamps. Constructed in 1884, The Dakota is also filled with history; in particular, it is infamous for being the location where John Lennon lived and died. The Dakota has also been featured in movies such as Rosemary's Baby and is home to many famous residents. Classical design plays an important role in the design of each residence at The Dakota, as many of its apartments still have the original details from 1884. The units in this co-op have exceptional crown molding and many have more than one fireplace, while there is intricate wood paneling throughout. Sumptuous high ceilings and spacious galleries make the residences at The Dakota even more appealing, not to mention that residences at The Dakota have high-end appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele. In addition, each residence is as customizable as possible, so whether or not you'd like a hint of modernity with your 18th-century architecture, The Dakota is a perfect setting for either luxurious Beaux-Arts decor or innovative contemporary design. One of the best things about The Dakota's location at 1 West 72nd Street is that residences at the co-op have phenomenal views of Central Park. There is also a beautiful garden located within The Dakota. The elegance of design from the building's exterior follows through to the building's lobby. A laundry room and a driveway are also amenities of The Dakota. There is also a full-time doorman at The Dakota. One of the most luxurious co-ops in New York, The Dakota offers some of the best high-end living that Manhattan has to offer.
