This very handsome, 14-story,
pre-war apartment building is a cooperative and has 49 units.
A red-brick building, it
is diagonally across from the townhouses that share a communal
garden on the east side of Sutton Place between 57th and 58th
Streets and therefore it has many superb, protected views.
The elegant building has
a two-story limestone base, a canopied entrance with doorman,
fireplaces and some balconies. It permits protruding air-conditioners
and has no garage and no health club. It is not close to a subway,
but is very close to a nice park overlooking the East River.
While there is considerable
traffic nearby along First Avenue going to the Queensborough Bridge
at 59th Street, Sutton Place is very quiet and lovely. There is
very good cross-town bus service and an excellent supermarket
shares some of the vault space beneath the nearby Queensborough
Bridge at 59th Street with a large restaurant.
