Lincoln Towers, the West 60s apartment complex developed as middle-class housing in the early 1960's, is certainly not everyone's cup of mocha. That said, if you last visited in the mid-1990's, you might want to take another look, because its eight buildings have come a long way since being converted to co-ops in 1987. All of the parks and playgrounds have been upgraded along with each building's lobbies, while elevators and hallways have been renovated at least once, according to the building description for 185 West End Avenue on StreetEasy. Big, serious bonus: Children at 185 West End receive a seat in coveted P.S. 199. Factor in the spacious two- and three-bedroom layouts in many of the apartment lines, and many families find the complex a compelling choice.
