Key West is, despite its name, not a city in Florida but instead, a luxury apartment rental building located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Apartments range in size from one to three bedrooms, and are purportedly some of the largest in the area. They offer oversized linen and walk-in closets, hardwood flooring, bay windows, private patios, views of Central Park West, updated kitchens with stainless steel and granite and more. The building boasts a 24-hour concierge, a children’s playroom, fitness center, landscaped rooftop sun deck and more. The building is located between 96th and 97th Streets on Columbus Avenue, which is a great Upper West Side location.

There are currently no available units at Key West, a testament to the building’s popularity. Previous units ranged in price from $2,653/month to $8,550/month. The average price per square foot at Key West is a mere $53, which is a steal given the building amenities, apartment finishes and location.

Key West is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, one of the most beloved neighborhoods in the city thanks to its tree-lined streets, brownstone homes and small boutiques and restaurants. The Upper West Side is one of New York’s most vibrant, desirable and family-friendly neighborhoods. An eclectic mix of restaurants and outdoor cafes invite you to linger, museums and galleries enliven your imagination, and Lincoln Center, the Beacon Theater and other nearby venues offer endless entertainment options. Central Park, of course, is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
