If you could make one wish, what would it be? And what would you do to get it? At 666 Park Avenue, all of your dreams and burning desires can come true: wealth, sex, love, power, even revenge. But just be careful what you wish for, because the price you pay...could be your soul. Welcome to The Drake, the premiere apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Owned by the mysterious Gavin Doran (Terry O'Quinn) and his sexy wife Olivia (Vanessa Williams), The Drake is home to dozens of residents who are unaware they're living in the dark embrace of supernatural forces. They think their dreams are all coming true, only to find they've been lured into making, what feels like, a deal with the Devil. When a young Mid-western couple - Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) and Henry Martin (Dave Annable) - is hired to manage The Drake, they soon discover that evil, obsession, and manipulation has a home.

New York's most seductive address.

The building that is standing in for 666 Park Avenue is the Upper West Side's Ansonia building at 2109 Broadway between West 73rd and West 74th Street. The gorgeous Beaux-Arts-style structure has made previous appearances on the big screen in Single White Female and Hannah and Her Sisters. But its reality is perhaps more interesting: In the 1970s, it was the home of the Continental Baths bathhouse, where Bette Midler got her start with Barry Manilow as her accompanist. The Continental Baths then became legendary swingers' club Plato's Retreat. Long ago, it was the home of legendary Yankee Babe Ruth who was known to walk down to the barber shop on the first floor wearing nothing but his bathrobe. See more
