The Ariel East and Ariel West are a pair of apartment buildings on Broadway at 99th Street that are known for being the tallest buildings on Manhattan's predominantly residential Upper West Side.

Controversy[edit]

Construction of the Ariel stirred intense controversy in the upscale residential neighborhood that had believed zoning laws precluded the construction of buildings over 16 stories in height.[1][2]
