Photo by myself in Central Park.
Beyond the lake in Central Park, lies the Upper West Side. In the background are the stately twin towers of the San Remo, a luxury co-op building on Central Park West. Meanwhile, a couple lounged idly in the grass.
Celebrities such as Tiger Woods, Stephen Spielberg, Demi Moore and Steve Jobs have called the San Remo home. The building was constructed in the early 1930's, just before the Great Depression.
Apartments in the San Remo have recently been listed for as much as 17 million dollars. The apartments high up in the towers routinely command asking prices of $2,500-$3,500 per square foot.
In comparison, typical Upper West Side apartments were priced at $1,000-$1,100 per square foot, at the height of the real estate boom.
