The Pythian, 135 West 70 Street - Upper West Side, New York

Built in 1926 and occupying a top spot on the list of the city's most surprising and delightful buildings, the Pythian is richly decorated in brightly-colored glazed terracotta embellishments depicting figures from antiquity. Commissioned for the Knights of Pythias, a fraternity founded in 1864, it was designed by Thomas W. Lamb, one of the country's foremost designers of movie palaces. The building was converted to a condominium in 1983 and contains 84 apartments. The conversion and restoration, designed by David Gura, altered the building's largely windowless facade by inserting many new windows while still retaining most of its exuberant decorative features. Apartments have terraces, high ceilings and unusual layouts. Amenities at this pre-war condominium include a full-time doorman, concierge, laundry facilities and basement storage. The Pythian is ideally located between the 1, 2, & 3, the A & C subway lines and just steps from Central Park, Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle for many of the city's best shopping, dining and cultural options.
