Some of the city’s streets are interesting for reasons that are not always obvious. This block, for example, has the backs of two major skyscrapers on 57th Street and the City Center for the Performing Arts on 55th Street.

In addition, it has the loading dock of CitySpire, a major mixed-use tower in the middle of the block, the busy Kaplan School, and the main entrance of the Parker Meridian Hotel, a famous music bookstore, a mystery book store, and the spectacular lobby with major antiquities in a green-glass midblock tower that has an angled plaza with three handsome conical flagpoles. Throw in four food stores, a couple of garages, two major health clubs and the stage door for Carnegie Hall and you have a lot going on.

With five major loading docks on the block, there are a lot of trucks on the street, but surprisingly the traffic moves rather well and taxis often turn into the street.

Architecturally, this is a very fascinating street since it is host to most spectacular skyscraper cluster in midtown. Carnegie Hall Tower and the Metropolitan Tower are on either side of the Russian Tea Room Restaurant on 57th Street and all extend to 56th Street where they are outsized by CitySpire, the tallest mixed-use building in midtown. The three towers are about 800 feet high each and the proximity is awesome, especially since their designs are quite different. All three have through-block arcades as does the hotel and the midblock angled building, which probably sets a world’s...
