310 East 55th Street Overview

This handsome, 13-story, mid-block, Art Deco-style, cooperative apartment building has 83 units.

The orange-brick, pre-war structure has a very impressive Art Deco-entrance and lobby with a mezzanine and a ceiling mural and period furniture.

The building is just to the east of the East 55th Street Conservative Synagogue on a quiet street and across from the one-story Bristol Medical Building that provides considerable "light and air" to this building.

The building has a canopied entrance, a doorman, and has very attractive frosted Art Deco-style windows flanking its entrance that has two-and-a-half-story Art Deco pilasters. The building has some corner windows, inconsistent fenestration, no sidewalk landscaping and permits protruding air-conditioners.

This is a lively midtown neighborhood with numerous restaurants and stores serving the Sutton Place community. There is excellent cross-town bus service on 57th Street and considerable traffic on the avenues because of the Manhattan entrance to the Queensborough Bridge four blocks to the north.
