The famous Ansonia building.

The Ansonia Building, located between 73rd and 74th street on the Upper West Side, was the largest residential
hotel in New York in 1904. The exterior style is the Beaux-Art. Famous personalities  lived there such as the conductor Arturo Toscanini, the composer Igor Stravinsky, the tenor Enrico Caruso. The singer and actress Bette Midler didn't lived there but started her career singing in a gay bathhouse located at the building. Hollywood used the Ansonia as set for the movie "Single White Female."
