This large apartment tower at 170 East 87th Street on the southwest corner at Third Avenue is known as The Gotham and it replaced a movie theater on the site when it was completed in 1992. 

It is one of the few buildings on the Upper East Side to offer some duplex apartments with double-height ceilings, a feature very nicely revealed in the façade by the large recessed balconies on both the avenue and the side-street. 

Developed by William Zeckendorf Jr. and partners and Tony Yamada, this hefty 27-story, 241-unit condominium building was designed by Frank Williams & Associates. 

This light-colored brick building opened in 1993 and its avenue frontage includes a movie theater complex.
