Built in 1872, 160 East 70th Street was designed by leading developer William McNamara and is one in a row of four Italianate-style townhomes.

In 1961, the property took on a new life when acclaimed artist, graphic designer and quintessential modernist Elaine Lustig Cohen converted the house for her family. The design of 160 East 70th Street beautifully reflects her lifelong passion for architecture as well as her visual aesthetic and legacy. The home is a stunning mix of original details: moldings, mantels, doors and staircase, and Lustig Cohen's signature modern touches: inset niches, accent colors, and a whimsical powder room featuring the artist's collection of vintage ethnic combs. The simplicity and elegance of the interior is designed to showcase the display of art, while also allowing for functional living, working and entertaining spaces.

It is worth noting that among Lustig Cohen's most prominent designs are the signage of Manhattan's Seagram Building, commissioned by the famed American architect, Philip Johnson, and many book and magazine covers, including the cover of Tennessee Williams' famous book "Hard Candy." Lustig Cohen left lasting contributions as an artist, typographer, archivist, and book dealer.

The sunny South garden can be accessed by both the Garden Floor, and from the stairs off the balcony of the Parlor Floor above.


The magnificent Parlor Floor features an elegant living room graced with large windows and a handsome fireplace.
