Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Take the famous main tower of the Houses of Parliament in London and wrap it in cardboard and plunk it down in midtown and you almost have the Sterling Plaza, a 33-story apartment tower erected in 1985 at 255 East 49th Street on the northwest corner of Second Avenue.

This condominium tower has good proportions, lots of corner balconies and a very distinctive roof." Read Carter's Full Review
