Description of 308 East 79th Street

308 East 79th Street is a pre-war building built in 1928 and epitomizing the classic Upper East Side co-op lifestyle. The doorman-serviced, canopied entrance leads past original cast bronze lanterns to a marble-clad anteroom and lobby. The building offers renovated elevators with key fob access, a laundry room, concierge service, resident storage, new mail and package rooms, a bike room, a fitness center, a garden, and large terraces on the rooftop. The building sits around the corner from Second Avenue, within three blocks of the 77th Street station of the 4/6 trains, three blocks away from the East River waterfront, and five blocks away from Central Park. The building’s central location on the Upper East Side puts its famed shopping and dining within easy reach, while the crosstown bus service with dedicated bus lanes on 79th Street provides convenient access to the Upper West Side.

Carter Horsley's Review of 308 East 79th Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This quite handsome, 17-story, mid-block apartment building is typical of the contextual architecture of the 1920's that sought to make the major residential crosstown streets as elegant as Park Avenue. With a two-story, light-colored base beneath a dark-brown brick façade with terra-cotta decorative elements on portions of the third and the top three floors, this large building has a rather delightful eccentricity about its stylistic syncopation. It is eclectic, but good-neighborly. The 192-unit building was erected in 1927 and converted to a cooperative in 1984. Located just to the east of Second Avenue, it is close to many popular restaurants and has excellent crosstown bus service.

When entering the building one passes by the original cast bronze lanterns and black lacquered doors into the marble-clad deco-detailed ante-room prior to entering a large glamorous palatial lobby with lead windows, marble walls, and terrazzo floors. Original mahogany-paneled elevator cars on two wings provide access to boutique landing shared by a few shareholders." Read Carter's Full Review
