Own a piece of history at the Ansonia Condominium at 2109 Broadway, between West 73rd and West 74th Streets. Originally constructed as a the grandest hotel in Manhattan in 1899 (commissioned to architect Paul E. Duboy), "the farm on the roof," Weddie Stokes wrote, "included about 500 chickens, many ducks, about six goats and a small bear." According to history, every day a bellhop delivered free fresh eggs to all the tenants, and any surplus was sold cheaply to the public in the basement arcade. The farm in the sky was shuttered in 1907, but no fear...you are no more than 2 blocks away from Fairway, Citarella and Trader Joes.
Want to have something in common with Babe Ruth? Stravinsky? Theodore Dreiser? Toscanini, Ziegfeld and others? They were all residents!http://www.mcny.org/story/basement-bathhouse-rooftop-farm-symphonies-and-scandals-between
