Reviews for The Dakota Apartment Rentals

The first luxury apartment building to be built in Manhattan. – In Short
From 1880-84, architect Henry Hardenberg designed this apartment building that was considered so way-out-west it was "like being out in the Dakotas." Its architecture includes ornate ironworks, a mansard roof and carved reliefs. The Dakota's original 65 apartments have had famous owners ranging from Judy Garland to Boris Karloff (whose ghost is rumored to haunt the place). John Lennon met his death while living here; Yoko Ono still resides in the building.

The devil made her do it – Rosemary's Baby was filmed at the Dakota. That would make it scary enough for me. If you want to see the inside, rent the DVD. Perfect of Halloween!

John Lennon's apt and place of death. – I think it needs to be mentioned that this is where John Lennon used to live in the city as WELL as the place that he was murdered. Besides this, if youre a John Lennon fan as well as a fan of New York City architecture, this building is very unique and prominent. The great thing to see close by is the area Strawberry Fields which is inspired by John Lennon. It's only about a couple hundred feet away across the street from the Dakota. The famous tiled, "Imagine." medalliion can be viewed at this spot in Central Park.

About the Dakota – I've been inside this incredible building, because a childhood friend lives there, and what an incredible place it is... Every apartment has it's own hallway leading to a front door - the furniture is dwarfed in these enormous apartments. I love the huge windows in the kitchens. Juts a great place to be. Wish I could afford it!
