The 2-bedroom, 2-full bathroom home offers an in-unit washer and dryer, as well as central air conditioning. While the home is inviting and intimate, it is also bright and airy thanks to its large windows. The kitchen has been renovated and features granite countertops, updated appliances including a gas range, and a glass mosaic backsplash that reflects the natural light from the opposite window. There is plenty of storage in the home, and both bathrooms are directly accessible through the bedrooms. This home is ideal for entertaining, boasting a 38-foot living and dining area for all your friends and family to spend time in.

The building itself is a neoclassical design, done by Deutsch & Schneider and completed in 1926. The layout of the building adds a certain level of privacy; each floor only has 2-3 apartments. For additional peace of mind, there is also a live-in superintendent. If you prefer biking over driving, 52 Riverside Drive has a bike storage room as well.

The location of this home is unbeatable. Close to everything that the Upper West Side has to offer, you’ll be within close walking distance of Broadway, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, The New York Historical Society, and dozens of incredible shops and restaurants. You also won’t be too far from Lincoln Center, Mount Sinai West, plenty of entertainment options, and Central Park.

The home is just across the street from Riverside Park, which offers scenic waterfront views, walking and biking paths, recreational facilities, and events.

At 52 Riverside Drive, you’ll have quick access to the 1, 2, and 3 trains to take you downtown by Penn Station, Times Square, Greenwich Village and Tribeca, and on to South Ferry, or north to Columbia University or Yankee Stadium. You’ll also be just a short walk away from the A, B, C, and D trains at the 81st Street – Museum of Natural History stop. From here, you can easily get to the Port Authority, Washington Square Park, the Financial District, and over to Brooklyn, as well as Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park, Bleecker Street, and all the way over to Brighton Beach and Coney Island.

The M5, the closest bus to this apartment, runs on Riverside Drive, taking you north up to Washington Heights, as well as south through Columbus Circle, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, and the New York Public Library. Also in the neighborhood are the M79, the M104, M7, M11, M57, and M72, giving you access to virtually anywhere in the city you may need to go.

This home is truly an unbeatable deal for the price, with stunning views, cozy interiors, and plenty of amenities. You’ll be sure to enjoy living in the Grand Chelsea.

"William Bolls is THE broker you want when buying and selling in Manhattan"

"William Bolls is THE broker you want when buying and selling in Manhattan. He is a wealth of knowledge and really takes the time to make sure you understand the process and are getting exactly what you want. I can't recommend him highly enough, and send him to anyone I know looking to buy and sell, especially the UWS."

"“I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William"

I can't imagine purchasing a property in New York City without William. As an out-of-town buyer, we faced additional challenges when we decided to buy an apartment in the city. As cliched as it sounds, William truly made us feel like his only clients. It's not a simple process and we required a decent amount of hand-holding. He was there for us every step of the way, even anticipating a lot of our concerns. One of the most valuable characteristics of a good agent is responsiveness. Any time we contacted William--and it was often--he responded quickly and completely. William will definitely be our agent on future transactions.

"The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home"

I worked with William over a lengthy period, trying to sell a lobby level doctor's office in a residential co-op building on the upper west side. The market was tough, but William stuck with it and brought it home. He showed patience and was always straightforward, honest and friendly throughout the process. Definitely 5 star.
