The Rio Condo, East 65th Street


The Rio Condo, East 65th Street


In a great location at 65th just off 2nd Avenue, an internationally known condo, The Rio, was designed by architects Gruzen Samton Steinglass and its developers, Donald Shapiro and Vector Real Estate Co. 


The 40-story condominium tower is one of the city’s typical "sliver" surprises.  Its tall, thin form springs up incongruously from its small plot and its width exceeds the city’s official definition of a "sliver" tower, a definition that was established in reaction to an "outbreak" of such slender projects in the 1980’s that sparked considerable controversy in many residential neighborhoods.


The building has a health club with a swimming pool in its basement.  Built in 1986, the tower has 150 apartments.  


Built in 1986, the 150 unit, 40 story tower is unique, with the lower level balconies being a different size and orientation than the curved upper ones; many with fantastic open views of the New York skyline. Boasting over-sized windows, The Rio is comprised mostly of 1 bedroom, some 2 bedrooms,  some 3 bedrooms, and a few 4 bedrooms, many of which have jacuzzi’s.  Adding to its appeal is the superb uniformed staff, large common areas, and the amenities which include a spa, health club, sauna, steam room, swimming pool, ground-floor garden and roof deck with spectacular panoramic views. Central laundry room. Pet Friendly.


Neighborhood : Upper East Side


Once known as the Silk Stocking District, it is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in New York City.The area was defined by the attractions of the bluff overlooking the East River, which ran without interruption from James William Beekman's "Mount Pleasant", north of the marshy squalor of Turtle Bay, to Gracie Mansion.
