188 East 78th Street


Soaring high in the sky with panoramic views of Manhattan, we find this extraordinary five bedroom, four and a half bath home right at the epicenter of the Upper East Side. After arriving to the 23rd floor's semi-private elevator landing, you enter this home and encounter a beautifully spacious central gallery, where you are immediately struck by the light which streams in from the extra-large windows. The commodious layout with adjoining living room, media/library (with built in wet bar) and dining room make for an inviting opportunity to entertain. The primary suite is privately secluded and features two oversized walk-in closets and a large bathroom with double vanities, a soaking tub and separate shower. In the southwestern wing of the apartment are three additional bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. The media/library was originally the fifth bedroom with its own full en-suite bathroom; please see the original floorplan (attached) to see if that layout may suit your needs. A private storage bin is included.

The exceptional location on East 78th Street between Lexington & Third Avenues, places The Empire Condominium at the center of it all. You are in close proximity to Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, innumerable galleries, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, the Madison Avenue shopping district, subways, bus lines and much more. This full-service condominium features a 24-hour doorman, concierge and live-in superintendent. Also featured are a fully renovated, state-of-the-art fitness center, a private landscaped garden, cinema room, business center, lounge with catering kitchen, children's playroom, wine cellars, laundry, bike room & onsite storage. The building is in the process of renovating all its hallways and has plans to renovate the lobby. The building also has a garage for a fee.
