Apthorp Building. The iconic building, which occupies the entire block between Broadway, West End Avenue and between 78th and 79th streets, is undergoing a messy conversion and it is fascinating to see the giant apartment that has been home to the O'Neals (and their friends) since 1971...
"It is a medium-size unit by Apthorp standards: about 3,000 square feet, according to a condo sales prospectus distributed to tenants by those same new owners in 2007, in which the apartment was offered at $7.85 million. It is also, these days, a lone outpost of a nearly lost world, home to the kind of sprawling, slightly messy, bohemian family life that middle-class renters could once make for themselves on the Upper West Side."
