Sitting just off Fifth Avenue, 8 East 96th Street is in one of the city’s most celebrated Rosario Candela buildings and coveted neighborhoods, Carnegie Hill. This “Candela” masterpiece is a white gloved, pre-war, cooperative building that is pet friendly and offers a bike room, basement storage for each apartment, and a central laundry room. It is also in close proximity to elite private schools, cultural institutions, restaurants and various modes of transportation. The building is only steps to Central Park, the reservoir, and one of Central Park’s largest playgrounds.
