Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This 16-story apartment building at 135 East 54th Street was designed by Rosario Candela and Paul Resnick.

The building is on the northwest corner at Lexington Avenue just to the south of the Central Synagogue that was designed by Henry Fernbach in 1872 and is "the oldest building in continuous use as a synagogue in New York," according to Norval White and Elliot Willensky in their great book, "The A.I.A. Guide to New York City Architecture, Fourth Edition." Executed in "rough-hewn Moorish style," the building is "dour on the exterior, except for the star-studded cupolas," but it has "an interior gaily stenciled with rich blues, earthy reds, ocher and gilt," according to the authors. (The building was seriously damaged by a fire in 1998, but was fully restored.)" Read Carter's Full Review
