You're likely to notice its twin towers rising above the trees in Central Park, looking like the fairy-tale spires of some urban palace, which it more or less is. Rita Hayworth, Paul Simon, Tiger Woods, and Steven Spielberg are among the celebrities who've resided in the 1930 building's giant apartments. At their peaks, the towers recede into circular columned Greek temples (modeled after the cathedral in Seville, Spain). They make a useful "compass" if you get disoriented in Central Park and want to know which way is west.
