Situated on a peaceful, tree-lined street, the famed Pythian Condominium combines pre-war architecture with modern-day amenities. Originally built in 1927 as a meeting hall for the Knights of Pythias, a fraternal organization, it was converted into one of the most historic and prestigious condo buildings in New York in 1983. The architect Thomas W. Lamb won awards for his Egyptian Revival restoration, which maintained the building's distinctive Art Deco facade with its intricate ornamentation and geometric patterns. The lobby is a sight to behold with its many impressive architectural details, including marble floors, ornate plaster moldings, and stained glass windows. Residents of the Pythian Condominium enjoy an array of amenities, including a full-time doorman, concierge services, a spacious laundry room, a fitness center, and a children's playroom
