Pomander Walk: The Upper West Side's Best Kept Secret

Real Estate Agent with The Corcoran Group

Pomander Walk Entrance: 260-266 West 95th Street

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. 


Pomander Walk: Upper West Side, Manhattan

An urban oasis with English gardens, Pomander Walk has attracted famous residents like Humphrey Bogart, Rosalind Russel, and Lilian Gish. In 1986 Woody Allen exposed this enchanting Manhattan hideaway in Hannah and Her Sisters.

Currently there are no available co-op apartments for sale. The most recent sale last year was a 1500 square foot home that sold for $1.5M. Apartments range from 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom + townhouse cottages.

Steve, Many Upper West Sider's don't even know these exist. Walking by you wouldn't notice unless you peek through the gates. 

I've been inside and have shown apartments there. Many are duplexes.

What an interesting place..and market! With such a high $/sqft I can't imagine what it's like selling real estate in NY. Is competition fierce (more realtors than housing)? Do you have fewer sales but higher commissions, or does the cost of living just balance it out?
