New York City Designated LandmarkThe Osborne Apartments, built from 1883-85 to designs by James E. Ware, survives today as one of New York's rare, early luxury apartment buildings, located just south of Central Park in one of the City's first apartment districts. The Osborne's heavy, rusticated stone facade, combining Romanesque Revival elements with the refinement and proportions of the emerging Renaissance Revival, makes it one of the most striking of its kind in the City. Its location on West 57th Street, near Carnegie Hall and other cultural and artistic institutions, has helped make it popular with musicians and artists. A western extension, designed by Alfred S.G. Taylor in 1906, harmonizes with the original design.
