60 East End Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

The tallest building in the area when it was built in 1972, this 43-story tower offers staggering vistas in all directions from its upper floors.

Converted to a cooperative in 1974, the building has only 123 apartments, or three per floor, a distinct attraction for the building.

Very close to Carl Schurz Park with its excellent security and waterfront promenade, the building is also near some of the city’s finest schools.

Although the building has no balconies and a fairly plain façade, it has an impressive and large lobby with a concierge and doorman and East End Avenue here is quiet and elegant. The building, which is somewhat similar to design to 900 Park Avenue (see The City Review article), has a nicely landscaped driveway with light stanchions.
