This handsome, 15-story, mid-block, red-brick apartment building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative and has only 23 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 two-story marble base, sidewalk landscaping, a canopied entrance flanked by lanterns, three bandcourses, and curved wrought-iron window balconies. The building has a doorman and masonry quoins, but no garage and no health club and 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.
