Carter Horsley's Review of 2 East 88th Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This handsome apartment building occupies a prime site on Fifth Avenue directly across from the spectacular Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. As a result, its long sidestreet façade has dramatic views of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright museum's curves and more privacy and Central Park views than most sidestreet exposures.

The 14-story building was converted to a cooperative in 1947 and has only 13 apartments. The building, which has a sidestreet entrance as well as a maisonette apartment with its own entrance on sidestreet, is perhaps most notable, however, for its very fine rooftop watertank enclosure, one of the most striking in the city."
