The Lucida, located at 151 East 85th Street, offers something truly unique from any other condominium on the Upper East Side. The first condominium in the neighborhood to receive LEED Certification, being green has not detracted from the luxury of the building; if anything, green living has enhanced this luxury condominium listing.

The Lucida's lobby makes fantastic use of reusable materials such as bamboo and cork, a rarity in New York City.

Luxury and green living continues within the apartments themselves. Oak floors line every single condo in the building and with all of the natural light coming in, the condominium's 10' ceilings seem even higher. The large open floor plans at The Lucida also include state-of-the-art appliances in the kitchen as well as a large soaking tubs in the master bathrooms in addition to pristine bamboo cabinetry.

Additonally, it is just blocks from Central Park and the subway. The Lucida also has one of the best fitness centers in Manhattan, run by New York's premier fitness professionals La Palestra, which explains why multiple professional athletes have chosen to live in this luxury condo listing. Standard at The Lucida are a 24 hour doorman and 24 hour concierge. The Lucinda also offers individual wine storage in the building's wine cellar.

Upper East Side

The Upper East Side is iconic for its landmarks, museums, and history. Known as one of the most affluent neighborhoods in NYC, the historic mansions and brownstones that made this area famous were once home to the country’s wealthiest, such as the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Carnegies. The neighborhood is stacked with landmarks: Central Park borders the Upper East Side to the east, along with a handful of New York City’s best museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
