This mid-floor, sun-drenched South facing two bedroom, two bath home is situated in the Paterno, a pre-World War I coop building at Riverside Drive and 116th Street. This residence offers a renovated eat-in-kitchen with a window, and two updated bathrooms, oak parquet floors and many pre-war details. Entering the home via a gracious foyer, you are ushered into an expansive and bright four-windowed living and dining room looking out upon open blue sky above and beyond and the majestic Hudson River below. The open, flowing floor plan is great for entertaining. The bedroom wing includes a generous master bedroom with a closet and a second bedroom.
The Paterno a unique design by renowned Morningside Heights architects, Schwartz and Gross, commands the northern side of west 116th Street and Riverside Drive with its handsome facade that curves toward Claremont Avenue and Columbia University. Its porte cochere remains a stunning entrance a century later, even without the carriages. The sumptuous marble lobby with stained glass ceiling harks back to an era of elegance as one of the premier apartment houses of Morningside Heights.
