The 21-story building at 35 Sutton Place on 59th Street commands front-row seats and views of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. 

Many people consider the bridge to be the city's most romantic because of its intricate tracery of steel girders, its Gothic ornament and the fact that it is the most prominent object that can be seen from Sutton Place apartments facing the East River. 

These views are enhanced by the slow passes of the brightly colored Roosevelt Island tram on the other side of the bridge. 

The building was built as a cooperative in 1961 and has 131 apartments. 

It was designed by Robert L. Bien, whose other Manhattan buildings include 812 Fifth Avenue, 900 Fifth Avenue and 910 Fifth Avenue.

Bottom Line

This 21-story building offers many good apartment layouts and spectacular views of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge and the East River.

Description

The building has very broad picture windows and a horizontal façade motif with white and pink masonry and numerous balconies.

Amenities

The building has manned elevators, a canopied entrance, a doorman, a health club and a garage. 

Cats and certified support dogs are allowed.

The apartment is wrapped on five sides with a continuous terrace facing the East River. 

Location

The building's setting at the northern end of Sutton Place combines the elegance of that short street with the drama of the soaring bridge and the activity beneath it. There is a large ballfield  across from the building that is converted into a tented tennis facility during the winter and a major food emporium is also under the bridge's Piranesian arches half a block to the west. 

Although Sutton Place, one of the city's most desirable residential neighborhoods because of its proximity to midtown, is far from subways, cross-town buses run on 57th Street and the area has several small parks, some of which overlook the river.
