Originally belonging to former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, this apartment with its remarkable history is part of Manhattan's real estate lore. When Vice President Rockefeller was married to his first wife, Mary, they owned the top three floors of 810 Fifth Avenue. After they divorced, the Vice President kept the bottom floor for himself and gave the top two floors to his ex-wife, Mary. He then purchased an apartment on an adjacent floor in the building next door, 812 Fifth Avenue, and broke through to his apartment at 810 Fifth Avenue, thereby joining the two buildings. Subsequent to his death, his second wife, Happy, separated the two apartments, kept the 812 Fifth Avenue residence and sold off the one at 810 Fifth Avenue to its current owners. This historic property has extraordinary views west through unusually large windows over Central Park and to the south of Central Park South. Currently it is configured for sophisticated entertaining rooms, including a 47 foot long Living Room with two fireplaces. Also radiating off the central gallery is a large Formal Dining Room and Library with full Bath. There is a two Bedroom Master Suite with very spacious Dressing Room and oversized Master Bath. It should be noted that two additional Bedrooms were removed to create the large entertaining rooms, but could be restored for a total of four Bedrooms. In addition, there is a double sized staff bedroom and bath, as well as a large breakfast/family room off the kitchen. A remarkable property with an equally remarkable history.
