Carter Horsley's Review of Tower 53

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"53rd Street is widely considered one of the city's most impressive sidestreets because it is the site of such major landmarks as the Citicorp Center, the Seagram Building, the Museum of Modern Art, the CBS Building and the New York Hilton Hotel, some of the city's most famous landmarks.

In recent years, however, much has changed. The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States erected its very impressive and art-filled Equitable Center at 52nd Street and a major and handsome new office building and annex to the Hilton Hotel was built just to the east of this building. Also, the remarkable renaissance of Times Square in the 1990's has revitalized the entire west Midtown area that has now become one of the most exciting in the city." Read Carter's Full Review
