Lincoln Towers Info – History

n the late 1950's and early 1960's, New York City was undergoing a renaissance of development and redevelopment, spurred by federal and state legislation, particularly Title I of the National Housing Act of 1949, which encouraged the renewal of entire neighborhoods, as opposed to individual buildings. With government funds for acquiring and clearing marginal urban areas available to augment the vision and capital of private developers, the face of New York City was being transformed.

Lincoln Towers is on Manhattan’s west side offering luxury apartments.On Manhattan's West Side that transformation included two major development projects located in the Lincoln Square Urban Renewal Area, which were constructed at about the same time, and only blocks away: Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and, just one and one-half blocks north, Lincoln Towers (construction on Lincoln Towers did wait, however, until the 1961 movie version of "West Side Story," filmed in part among the abandoned buildings that once stood there, was completed). Lincoln Center, with its Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, New York State Theater, Juilliard School and many more buildings, parks and cultural attractions, runs from 62nd Street to 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues. The 20 acre Lincoln Towers campus runs from 66th Street to 70th Street on both sides of West End Avenue, bounded by Amsterdam Avenue on the east, and Donald Trump's Riverside South on the west.

Originally built as rental units, all of the 3,837 apartments in Lincoln Towers were rent stabilized until the eight buildings converted to co-ops on May 1, 1987. At the time of the conversion more than 53% of the units were purchased; that number has since risen to almost 90%. Rent stabilized tenants were not forced to buy, and the remaining 10-11% of unsold apartments will retain their stabilized status until they are vacated, and then sold.

Lincoln Towers is an upper west side apartment building in Manhattan.
Lincoln Towers has recently been renovated and offers the best luxury apartments in the upper west side of New York.

Since the conversion to cooperative ownership, Lincoln Towers has gone through yet another transformation. All of the complex's parks and playgrounds have been upgraded, and every building has renovated its lobbies, hallways and elevators at least once. Most have added exercise rooms, children's playrooms and other amenities that combine to make Lincoln Towers an oasis of luxury community living in the center of Manhattan.
