Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This impressive, Art Deco-style tower at 160 Central Park South would be one of the most distinguished buildings along Central Park South were it not for its big rooftop sign that proclaims its name, the Essex House.

The 42-story building, which was designed by Frank Grad, was originally called the Park Tower and then the Seville Towers before becoming the Essex House Hotel." Read Carter's Full Review
