Are you, like us, obsessed with “Only Murders in the Building” on Hulu? If so, you’re probably drooling over the swanky Upper West Side co-op where Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez’s characters live. Luxury prewar buildings are staples of the real-life UWS. (Case in point: The exterior shots of the building are of The Belnord on 86th Street.) And they’re often home to celebrities too, as on the show! Check out these prewar Upper West Side co-ops, all on the market now, to live your old-school New York dreams. We can’t guarantee you’ll start a hit true-crime podcast with your neighbors, though.

If you imagine your perfect crime-solving headquarters, this super-chic studio would be it.

Here’s your chance to own in a barrel-front brownstone right near Riverside Park. The prewar Upper West Side co-op dream! A unique raised entrance leads down a few steps into the spacious living room. The separate kitchen is elegantly renovated, with a dishwasher and loads of counter and cabinet space. Down the hall is an office nook and a huge corner bedroom with three exposures.
It doesn’t get much better than a Central Park West address, does it? This fabulous Upper West Side co-op is set in the Ardsley, one of the neighborhood’s architectural gems. (It was designed by Emery Roth, whose other UWS masterpieces include the Beresford and the San Remo.) The unit features prewar hallmarks like high beamed ceilings and arched doorways. There’s a gorgeous windowed kitchen, too.
Our next stop is in the heart of it all, just a block from Central Park and right near the Museum of Natural History. And this Upper West Side co-op is simply stunning. Triple windows in the living room and bedroom provide ample light. Plus, a meticulous renovation delivers a high-end marble kitchen, custom lighting, and new oak floors. Even the bathroom is just beautiful.
We end with character in this charming brownstone 1-bedroom. Exposed brick walls perfectly complement the wood-burning fireplace and classic wood-beamed ceiling. While the bedroom is on the small side, there’s a walk-in closet right outside of it, so you’ll still have storage space. And you’ll be surrounded by culture, with Lincoln Center and iconic eateries right nearby.
