Carter Horsley's Review of The St. Urban

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the city's grand Beaux-Arts structures, the St. Urban at 285 Central Park West on the southwest corner at 89th Street is an exuberantly designed apartment house of great distinction. 

Although it is very flamboyant and almost too robust in its assertive embellishments, it is truly one of the city's most spectacular residential properties." Read Carter's Full Review
