A Palazzi in Manhattan The skyline of the Upper West Side is graced by the residential palaces, palazzi, of the architect Emery Roth. These buildings, including the Beresford and the San Remo, feature signature double towers and generously proportioned interiors. Now, a rarely available one-bedroom in his most modern palazzi, The Normandy, on Riverside Drive, is on the market. Art Moderne in style, the building boasts commanding views of the Hudson. The apartment features gracious, oversized rooms, top of the line kitchen with subzero and granite counters, bath with a glass walled shower, and a beautiful built-in office.
