Review of 455 East 57th Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome, 16-story, mid-block, red-brick apartment building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative and has only 42 units.

It has a prime location on one of the nicest blocks along 57th Street and is just a few steps from the best buildings on Sutton Place.

This building has a small, elegant lobby with marble floors and a doorman and a one-story limestone base with sidewalk landscaping. It has no garage, no health club and is not close to a subway, but is very close to a nice park overlooking the East River.

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.
