The Residences At 40 East 66th Street
The building was originally constructed in 1929 and the new lobby was inspired by original details including a vaulted ceiling and patterned floors and walls of St. Laurent, White Pearl and Oro Toscano marble. The units include some original features like formal dining rooms, wood-burning limestone fireplaces, and white oak herringbone patterned floors along with modern touches like Barber Wilsons & Co. faucets, Viking stoves with Miele hoods, Sub-Zero refrigerators and wine coolers and Miele dishwashers. The building has 24-hour doorman service as well as a fitness room, children's playroom and bike and stroller storage.
