Built at the turn of the century by renowned architect and longtime Upper West Side resident, Ralph Townsend, 194 Riverside Drive is a stunning apartment building designed in the Neo-Renaissance style, setting itself apart from the neighboring buildings with its curvaceous façade of bay windows, classically inspired entrance with polished granite columns and charming lion head relief sculptures on either side of the main entrance. The beautiful lobby features an elegant barrel vault with decorative coffered ceilings as well as original stained glass. The building boasts a 24-hour doorman, landscaped roof deck, playroom, private storage, bike room, and excellent live-in Super. According to local legend, architect Ralph Townsend lived on a boat offshore in the Hudson Rivers while constructing the building. Today, the location on Riverside Drive just across from Riverside Park is one of the biggest draws to residents.
