This elegant home features classic waxed wood floors, nine and half foot ceilings, an original 1928 marble fireplace, and original hardware. The SpacePak air conditioning and new washer/dryer provide modern conveniences. The Drake Tower offers its residents white glove service, attached valet parking, a gym, a private outdoor patio, and indoor access to the Drake Hotel. Pets are welcome.
