Cannon Point South Overview

One of two nearly identical apartment towers on the east blockfront of Sutton Place South between 54th and 55th Street, Cannon Point South was built in 1958 as a cooperative.

The white-brick, 20-story building is perhaps best known for a photograph of a high-floor tenant fishing from his window in the East River directly below. Needless to say, many apartments have waterviews.

The 277-unit building, which is cantilevered over the FDR Drive, not only "backs" on the river, but also has major views to the south towards Beekman Place and the United Nations. The building is immediately to the north of a very pleasant small park at the base of Sutton Place South.

The building's name, Cannon Point, comes from the fact that the site once held fortifications to ward off invasion of Manhattan and also had until 1921 a shot tower, according to the building's original marketing brochure.

The building was designed by Paul Resnick and Harry Green and William Pahlman designed its attractive lobby.

The building has a...
