A large, renovated bathroom completes this truly unique and special residence.
The Wilbraham is a stunning, landmarked, pre-war co-op building located in the heart of NoMad. It was built in 1890 by prominent Scottish-American jeweler William Moir and was designed by D. & J. Jardine. The handsome, eight-story building once served as a bachelor’s hotel and was an annex of the nearby Waldorf Astoria.
The Wilbraham is an extraordinarily well-detailed reflection of the Romanesque Revival style, with its exterior featuring a splendid combination of Philadelphia brick, Belleville brownstone, and cast iron. An iconic cast-iron staircase connects all levels including the exquisitely restored lobby. The building was converted for cooperative use in 1989 and awarded landmark designation in 2004. An elevator services all floors of the impeccably maintained building and features an on-site laundry room. Nearby transportation includes the N/R/W/B/D/F/M (.1 mi), PATH (.2 mi), and 6 (.2 Mi).
Equally a historic destination and a modern cultural phenomenon, NoMad is figuratively the center of New York City culture. It is here that fine dining, hospitality, shopping, nightlife, arts, and culture find common ground. The neighborhood blends the elegant architecture of the gilded age with the progressive and modern aesthetic of many visionary architects of the twenty-first century. Within just a few blocks you will find many boutique hotels including the globally celebrated Nomad hotel and the highly anticipated Virgin Hotel and Ritz- Carlton Nomad, with dining by Michelin-starred chef José Andrés. Landmark attractions such as the Empire State Building, The Flatiron Building, and Madison Square Park are steps away.
