Carter Horsley's Review of Brisbane House

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This 15-story apartment building was erected in 1929 by Arthur Brisbane, an editor with the Hearst organization who had earlier developed the Ritz Tower on the northeast corner of Park Avenue and 57th Street, designed by Emery Roth and an important early midtown skyscraper.

For this building, Brisbane commissioned Schultze & Weaver, the architectural firm that designed the Sherry Netherland Hotel and the Pierre Hotel lower down on Fifth Avenue." Read Carter's Full Review
