This palatial Art Deco 26-story cooperative designed by Bottomley, Wagner & White in 1931 overlooking the East River with its central tower topped by a crown, its two massive fifteen-story wings enhanced with loggias, terraces, balconies, high ceilings, wood burning fireplaces, is one of the most luxurious, romantic and private apartment building ever built. The River House with its old world charm is one of the most famously discreet buildings in the city. It is a tradition among staff and apartment owners to be protective of the building’s privacy.

Behind elegant rococo wrought-iron gates there is a landscaped cobblestoned courtyard with fountains and statuary used as a turnaround for vehicles dropping off and picking up passengers with its entrance on the cul-de-sac of East 52nd street.

The River Club with its own entrance on 52nd street, a very-top-caliber health club on the lower floors of the River House, includes 3 squash courts, two tennis courts, a gym, a swimming pool, a library, an excellent dining room and bar overlooking the river, a ballroom and guest rooms.
