Sutton 57, 212 East 57th Street: Review and Ratings

between Second Avenue & Third Avenue View Full Building Profile

Review of 212 East 57th Street by Carter Horsley

Sutton 57 at 212 East 57th Street is the more modest and sedate of two luxury, mid-block residential condominium apartment towers that were construction on this block in 2006.

It is a 24-story, masonry-clad building with one setback and only 38 apartments.  It is across the street from Place 57 at 207 East 57th Street, a 36-story, angled, reflective-glass-ad tower with 68 apartments.

Sutton 57 was developed by Broadway Management of which Joseph Neumann and Charles Hertzka are principals. 

H. Thomas O’Hara was the architect.

Bottom Line

This pleasant, mid-block, 24-story apartment tower in Midtown East is convenient to shopping and public transportation.


Sutton 57 is distinguished by a very large entrance marquee that leads to a large circular lobby. It also has rooftop illumination.

The orange-brick façade on 57th Street has a setback at the tenth floor.


The building has a concierge, rooftop residents’ garden, and a fitness center, but no balconies and no garage.

There are no more than three apartments a floor.

There are many restaurants and shops nearby as well as good public transportation.


Apartments have Cabrueva flooring and kitchens have SubZero refrigerators, glass-front cabinetry, and appliances and fixtures by Dacor, Miele, Blanko and Dornbracht.

Bathrooms have Calacatta Gold honed stone walls, a Porcher vessel sink and Jado polished chrome fixtures.

Apartment 2C has a foyer that leads past an 11-foot-wide open kitchen to a 21-foot-long living room with a small terrace.  The apartment also has two bedrooms and a 26-foot-long south terrace.

Apartment 8B is a one-bedroom unit with a l6-foot-long living room with an open kitchen and dining area and south facing balcony.

Apartment 9C is a two-bedroom unit with a 7-foot-long foyer that leads past a 12-foot-long open kitchen to a 20-foot-long living room.  The unit also has a balcony off one of its bedrooms.

Apartment 21A is a three-bedroom unit with a 26-foot-wide living room adjacent to an open kitchen and dining alcove.



This building replaced a modern two-story building that most recently had housed The Wiz electronics store. Plaza 57 replaced the neo-classical low-rise building that house the former Sutton Movie Theater.

The more traditional of the two, Sutton 57 took its name from the nearby Sutton Place district noted for its attractive masonry apartment buildings.
