165 East 72nd Street: Review and Ratings

Review of 165 East 72nd Street by Carter Horsley

This large, 21-story, red-brick apartment building, which occupies the west blockfront on Third Avenue between 72nd and 73rd Streets, was erected in 1960 and converted to a cooperative in 1969. The attractive building features fairly large apartments and a garage. It has considerable "light and air" because it is across from a low-rise Colonial-style building on Third Avenue and the setback tower of the Tower East apartment building on 72nd Street. With an excellent and central Upper East Side location, the building is close to many fine restaurants and stores, such as Gracious Home and Grace's Marketplace, both nearby to the south on Third Avenue. Many popular restaurants, such as Mortimer's, are nearby on Lexington Avenue. The 204-unit, doorman building is not too far from local subway stations at 67th and 77th Streets on Lexington Avenue and cross-town buses run frequently on 72nd Street. This area is one of the most pleasant on the Upper East Side.
