Wikipedia: The Beresford, at 211 Central Park West, between 81st and 82nd Streets, is an upscale apartment building in New York City. The architect, Emery Roth, was famous for building luxury apartments and hotels throughout the city. The Beresford, completed in 1929, is one of four Roth apartment blocks on Central Park West including The El Dorado (between 90th and 91st Streets), The San Remo, and The Ardsley. The Beresford, 22 stories tall, is the largest by volume, its mass relieved by horizontal belt courses, staggered setbacks, which provide some apartments with terraces, and architectural detailing that gives an impression of Georgian houses embedded in the mass. It takes its name from the Hotel Beresford, which had occupied the same site since 1889. The Beresford has two street-front facades, capped by its distinctive octagonal copper-capped corner towers: the eastern facade overlooks Central Park; and the southern facade overlooks Manhattan Square, the park that contains the American Museum of Natural History. Unlike some of Manhattan's prestigious co-op buildings, the Beresford accepts celebrities and politicians as residents. Current residents include comedian Jerry Seinfeld in Isaac Stern's former apartment, singer Diana Ross, former Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, Betsy Gotbaum and Victor Gotbaum, magazine editor Helen Gurley Brown and movie producer David Brown, and tennis player John McEnroe. Former residents have included historian Alan Brinkley, Tony Randall, Rock Hudson, Margaret Mead and Beverly Sills.
