Five Riverside Drive, a classic art deco building designed by the team of Boak and Paris on the corner of 73rd Street and Riverside Drive, set a renting record when it was built in 1937. 

The attractions of the 20-story building with 109 apartments included dropped living rooms, dining galleries and decorative fireplaces.

A cooperative since 1965, shareholders love the proximity to Riverside Park, and the wide vistas of the Hudson even as far as the George Washington Bridge. The building has round-the-clock service, cats and dogs allowed, elevator, and a live-in superintendent, laundry, storage and a bike room. 

 Kander and Ebb wrote the song “Ring Them Bells” for Liza Minnelli about Shirley Devore who lived at 5 RSD and traveled all around the world only to fall in love with the boy next door.
