240 Central Park South is an Art Deco-style residential building constructed between 1939 and 1940 in Midtown Manhattan.

The architecture team of Mayer & Whittlesey, under the helm of the J.H. Taylor Construction Co., designed 240 in somewhat of a "C"-shape. The building rises 28-stories on Central Park South and 15-stories on 58th Street with a connecting lobby made of marble, green terrazzo flooring and copper-clad walls.

240 Central Park South has 297 units, including studios as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom residences — some with wood-burning fireplaces and private terraces. The building also offers a rooftop lounge and deck that overlooks Central Park.

Additional perks include a 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, and plenty of retail options on the ground level including several shops, cafes, and Marea, an award-winning Italian restaurant.

Notable residents of the building include "The Little Prince" author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry as well as the building’s own architect, Albert Mayer, who lived there from 1975 until his death in 1981.

240 Central Park South also served as the “Metropolis” residence of Margot Kidder’s character, Lois Lane, in the 1978 film "Superman."
