Recognizable by its three towers between 75th and 76th Streets on Broadway, this turn-of-the-20th-century residence seamlessly combines classic architectural design with modern finishes. The Astor was commissioned by William Waldorf Astor in 1901, updated with the addition of a third tower in 1914, and recently restored by the venerable design firm of Pembrooke & Ives. Exceptional pre-war details remain, from the decorative cornice that crowns the exterior to the intricate mosaic and marble details that lend the lobby its elegant and welcoming character.
A Breathtaking Entrance
Discreetly step off Broadway through bronze-and-glass doors into the lobby, where carefully restored original details – elaborate crown molding, marble wainscoting and columns, intricate mosaic tiling – live alongside artful modern additions, including a monolithic marble slab concierge desk with bronze inlays, a commissioned plaster wall sculpture, and contemporary furnishings that invite socializing. The juxtaposition creates an understated elegance that feels right for today, while still speaking to a bygone era of quality and craft.
The marble fireplace is flanked by original bronze lion countenances.
Original mosaic tilework has been preserved throughout.
The marble mantelpiece reflects the level of craftsmanship throughout The Astor.
Atrium staircases with restored iron balustrades are found in all three towers.
