Mitchell,

What a lovely area, and I remember visiting a friend's parent in one of these prewar building.  His apartment was so beautiful overlooking the river.  We had a lovely dinner complete with servants and bells.  LOL A

Mitchell, that is a great historical picture of the Upper Westside before the park was built!  I'm lucky to say that I've had the opportunity to be in some of those homes - absolutely gorgeous.  Happy 2012.

Hi Alexandra Some of the most beautiful apartments are on Riverside Drive. It's special to me because my first real estate deal was at 210 Riverside Drive a fabulous pre-war coop opposite Joan of Arc Island. I hope you and Ron had a nice New Year.

Hi Peggy, Happy 2012 to you! You are lucky to have been in some of the gorgeous homes on Riverside Drive,

Hi Roger, Happy New Year. You're right beautiful architecture. I've been taking early morning walks along the Drive and it's been beautiful this year because the weather has been so warm for January.

Here are a few pictures I took yesterday that didn't make the blog:
