One of Manhattan's most famous apartment buildings with many former celebrity residents. It was constructed in 1884. The complex was surrounded by open land and shanties, and so far removed from the city that someone remarked, "It might as well be in the Dakota Territory." The name stuck. Beyond its history, the Dakota's claims to fame are rather macabre: Rosemary's Baby was filmed here, and resident John Lennon was assassinated outside on December 8, 1980.
