Property Overview

Lincoln Spencer is a 237 unit co-op located at 140 West 69th Street, between Columbus and Broadway. Constructed in 1903, it is one of several distinct architectural buildings of the Beaux Arts era that still graces New York’s Upper West Side today. It is adorned with bay windows, wrought iron balconies on some floors and limestone ornamentation.

The building was initially operated as the Spencer Arms Hotel, which was primarily residential, with only three very large apartments on each floor. Over the years the building was transfigured into smaller units, both for hotel and rental occupancy. In 1986, the Lincoln Spencer Apartments, Inc. cooperative conversion became effective.

Lincoln Spencer is a luxury, doorman building, with a full maintenance staff and live in superintendent. Extensive renovations have been completed in the lobby and hallways throughout the building providing residents with beautifully appointed common areas. Landscaping in front of the building is professionally maintained and Lincoln Spencer also supports the 69th Street block association in its efforts to maintain the trees around the building.
