The York Gate, 405 East 63rd Street: Review and Ratings

between First Avenue & York Avenue View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 405 East 63rd Street by Carter Horsley

This rather bland but neat, 13-story apartment building between First and York Avenues is close to Rockefeller University and the hospital corridor along York Avenue. The doorman building was erected in 1958 and converted to a cooperative in 1958. It has 152 apartments, most with large picture windows. This area is relatively quiet and not far from the Manhattan entrance to the Queensboro Bridge. Numerous restaurants are in the vicinity and Sotheby's, the auction house is not too far away at 72nd Street and York Avenue. A downtown bus on York Avenue turns at 57th Street and crosses town.
