The Pythian is a luxury boutique condominium of unparalleled quality built in 1926. It 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. The Building was commisioned for The Knights of Pythias which was a fraternity founded in 1864. It was built mostly in buff brick and terra cotta. Sprinkled over the surface is some of the most brilliant polychrome terra cotta in New York. The lobby has a double-height space in what appears to be polished black marble, with Egyptian decor, like a winged orb over the doorway.

The Upper West Side provides the ultimate living experiences and conveniences for families and anyone who is attracted to outdoor lifestyle. “The Pythian” is a casual walk to Central Park and Lincoln Center. Close proximity to healthy food shopping, restaurants, cafes, retail-shopping, superior school districts, and public transportation. The Pythian is a pet-friendly building that has a live-in super, full-time doorman, elevator and bike room!
