One of the Upper West Side's best-kept secrets is a tiny Tudor village tucked between Broadway and West End Avenue. Pomander Walk was built in 1921 to resemble the London set of a hit play of that era called Pomander Walk. The Pomander Walk enclave of European-styled townhouses runs a full block on the Upper West Side. The townhomes align a narrow block which stretches from 94th to 95th Street between West End Avenue and Broadway. There are 27 Tudor-styled townhomes, with 63 co-operative apartments behind the exclusive gated enclave.

Donald Trump bought the property back in the 1970's. After a few failed proposals for the Riverside South property including the world’s tallest building at 152 stories named Television City, hoping to entice NBC as prime tenant, in 1991 Trump and a coalition of community and civic groups agreed to reduce the project’s size by 40% to 8.3 million square feet.
