There is something mythic about the Dakota the iconic apartment on the corner of what is now W72nd and Central Park West used as the setting for Rosemary s Baby When built it was so far north from everything New Yorkers told its builder it might as well be in the territories Hence its name and some of the detailing on its facade The parts I enjoyed most were about East vs West sides the era of the 1880 s its construction details and residents of its earlier days But I began to fade at the gossipy tone of later chapters The book was published in 1979 and the power struggles between residents were relevant 30 years ago Also John Lennon was still alive and his and Yoko Ono s presence was example of what was seen as a new order not exactly welcome by some I wish there was some update on the building s life available Zillow searches indicate the building has definitely held its mystiue It is still one of the most desireable addresses in the Ghost Light years ago Also John Lennon was still alive and his and Yoko Ono s presence was example of what was seen as a new order not exactly welcome by some I wish there was some update on the building s life available Zillow searches indicate the building has definitely held its mystiue It is still one of the most desireable addresses in the
