The building was built on what was called "Bloomingdale Road," now known as Broadway in 1908. Designed by architects Clinton and Russell for William Waldorf Astor, the style is Italian Renaissance Revival and some say was modeled after the Pitti Palace in Florence. This stunning structure occupies the full block between Broadway and West End Avenue and between West 78th and West 79th streets. Arguably one of the most monumental and magnificent buildings in the city, The Apthorp is built around a large interior courtyard that is planted with flowers and greenery surrounding two ornate fountains.

The core is a large courtyard with two marble fountains and a lovely garden In the spring, there are tulips and azaleas, in summer pale-blue hostas and hydrangeas.
