River House Overview

Arguably the city’s, if not the world’s, finest apartment building, River House at 435 East 52nd Street is the epitome of "swell" living. 

Erected in 1931 when its area still teemed with tenements, it was mocked in the famous and popular 1936 movie, "Dead End" that was Lillian Hellman’s adaptation of Sidney Kingsley’s play. The play and movie, which starred Humphrey Bogart, focus on the not always communal coexistence of the rich in their spectacular tower of luxury and the poor swimming in the adjacent river off the dead-end street. 

That image of startling juxtaposition was not inaccurate as the area had been a slum and river breezes could still waft the stink of the slaughterhouses a few blocks south until they were demolished to make way for the United Nations complex in the 1940’s. 

It was designed by Bottomley, Wagner & White and has 64 apartments.
