Info & Ratings - Overview

Building Summary

  • 1928Year Built
  • 10Apartments
  • 14Floors


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 was designed by Rosario Candela and Cross & Cross, the same architectural team that designed 1 Sutton Place South.

It was developed by the Henry Phipps Estate.

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 Ed Koch Queensboro 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 bridge with a large restaurant.

For many years, one of its residents was Henry Luce III, the publisher of Time Magazine.
