This very handsome, 14-story,
red-brick apartment building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative
and has only 10 units.
One of the nicest buildings
in the Sutton Place area, this has a two-story limestone base,
sidewalk landscaping, high ceilings, large apartments, consistent
fenestration and a doorman. It has considerable "light-and-air"
because of the low-rise, townhouse block on the west side of Sutton
Place between 57th & 58th Streets. It permits protruding air-conditioners
and has no garage, no balconies 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.
