Two hundred Central Park South is one of the cooler mid-century apartment buildings in New York. Instead of a right angle where Central Park South and 7th Ave meet, there is a gentle curve.


Developed in 1963 by Bernard Spitzer, the father of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, the building’s shape was a result of the elder Spitzer’s “worrying and worrying about the design of the building when he flung his pencil down on the drafting paper, and the famous curve was born,” as The New York Times wrote in 2013.
