Crossing 23rd, 121 East 23rd Street

Between Park Avenue South & Lexington Avenue

Review by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of CityRealty.com.
 

This attractive, mid-block, 22-story apartment building at 121 East 23rd Street between Park Avenue South and Lexington Avenue was erected in 2005 and is distinguished by its asymmetrical façade.

The building has 95 large condominium apartments.

The east end of the building has balconies and the top third of the building has a different fenestration pattern than the lower two-thirds.

It was developed by Chay & Chay LLC and designed by H. Thomas O’Hara.

Andres Escobar did the interiors.

Bottom Line

This area is undergoing significant change with new luxury residential towers, and an enlarged Baruch College campus and improved retail activity that is beginning to replace many fast-food outlets in the area.

Shake Shack is a short walk away in Madison Square Park near Mario Batali’s spacious and super Eataly food emporium.


 

Description

The light-red-brick building has a two-story stone base and many bay windows in the center of the 23rd Street façade.


 

Amenities
