Introducing The Laney: Your Family’s New Luxury Home on the UWS

As a haven for arts, culture, cuisine and the world’s most famous parks, the Upper West Side is a perennially sought-after neighborhood for city-dwelling families — but as we all know, finding the perfect pad is not for the faint of heart. If your search has been a struggle, it’s time to meet The Laney.

The elegant boutique rental building is an anomaly. Not only does it boast a covetable location (201 West 77th Street and Amsterdam Avenue), The Laney, originally built by Art Deco pioneer Emery Roth, successfully maintains its historical charm but offers all of the modern conveniences. Reimagined by the team at Peter Pennoyer Architects, the rental units are filled with condo-quality finishes, including oak wood flooring, stunning Glassos countertops, high-end Miele appliances, heated stone floors and smart entry doors. It’s a masterclass in luxe living — with no pesky co-op board applications!

Now, as any well-versed rental hunter knows, it’s particularly challenging to secure a spot with enough space for the whole clan (and then some). Luckily, The Laney’s epic offering of 57 apartments includes large-scale homes, namely a variety of three- and four-bedroom residences. A current four-bedroom vacancy features expansive views, open living spaces, custom cabinets, in-home laundry and a breathtaking primary suite with a windowed en-suite bathroom (plus a massive walk-in closet, of course). Naturally, a selection of exclusive amenities awaits, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a private lounge, a lushly landscaped courtyard, a children’s playroom, and a dedicated dog spa for your beloved furry friends.

The charm of a pre-war building can fade fast thanks to unmaintained elements, but The Laney is an example of exquisite restoration. Upon arrival, visitors are greeted with a lavish limestone facade and appropriately gilded lobby, making way for grand accommodations that capture the true essence of New York City.

While you already know the unparalleled address is comfortably situated between both Riverside and Central Parks, the American Museum of Natural History and New-York Historical Society are steps away, not to mention Equinox, the JCC and a variety of other convenient businesses. The restaurant options are equally impressive, with The Laney’s proximity to the Upper West Side’s most vibrant dining district — featuring Crave Fishbar, Sarabeth’s, Momoya and neighborhood gems like Celeste.

Currently, available units are priced from $4,000 and exclusive sales and marketing is handled by SERHANT. New Development, the real estate brokerage founded by Ryan Serhant, world-renowned agent, and Bravo star (who doesn’t love a little Million Dollar Listing?). Learn more at
