Some may swoon for the glitz of the San Remo or The Majestic, be swayed by the imposing and mysterious Dakota but my favorite icon Central Park West architecture is hands down The Beresford. This elegant and refined 1929 residence was designed by the lengendary Emory Roth and sits prominently at the intersection of West 81st Street and Central Park West. Liveried elevator attendantsand doormen greet residents as they enter the ornate but chic-ly unstated lobby. The fabled co-op is known for it luminary residents past and present including Jerry Seinfeld, Rock Hudson, Beverly Sills, Diana Ross, John McEnroe and Isaac Stern. My former boss Helen Gurley Brown lives in one of the structure's three coveted towers. She refers to her multi roomed tri-plex aerie as the largest one bedroom in Manhattan (she doesn't like to encourage house guests!)
