The Beresford is an upscale, 23-floor apartment building in New York City and one of the world's greatest residential buildings. This 193-unit cooperative is one of the masterpieces by architect Emery Roth, famous for building luxury apartments including The El Dorado, The San Remo and The Ardsley. Built in 1929, it takes its name from the Hotel Beresford, which had occupied the same site since 1889. The Beresford has two very prominent street-front facades, the eastern facade overlooks Central Park and the southern facade overlooks Theodore Roosevelt Park, the park that contains the American Museum of Natural History. The massive block is opened to the west, giving it a U-shape, wrapped round a central court. Featured are breathtaking grand scale layouts with ballroom-sized rooms, soaring 10 foot ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, terraces, unparalleled architectural details, and private or semi-private elevator landings. The upper floors consist of mostly duplex units with eight or more rooms, and set back terraces. Its residents enjoy the finest white-glove service and top security with 24-hour doormen and elevator attendants, a state-of-the-art fitness club, huge storage rooms, bike and laundry rooms, and incredibly low maintenances.
