435 East 57th Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 435 East 57th Street by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of

This very handsome 16-story, mid-block, red-brick apartment building was erected in 1927. It is a cooperative and has 58 units.

This is one of the nicest blocks along 57th Street, although like many in the city it has its inconsistencies such as the "L"-shaped, white-brick apartment building across the street at 411 East 57th Street that wraps around and looms over a few low-rise buildings on the northeast corner at First Avenue that house a magazine store and a liquor store. Its configuration, of course, reflects the popularity of this neighborhood, which is only a block away from a nice park overlooking the East River on Sutton Place.

This building has a 2-story, rusticated limestone base, multi-paned windows, sidewalk landscaping, a doorman, and very attractive escutcheons and putti on the façade. The building permits protruding air-conditioners and has a 1-step-up, canopied entrance, and has no garage and no health club. It is not close to a subway.

While there is considerable traffic nearby along First Avenue going to the Queensborough Bridge at 59th Street, this is a quiet block in the highly desirable Sutton Place neighborhood. There is very good cross-town bus service and an excellent supermarket shares some of the vault space beneath the nearby Queensborough Bridge at 59th Street with a large restaurant.
