Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The quite attractive, 21-story, red-brick building at 50 East 79th Street on the southeast corner at Madison Avenue has one of the choicest locations on the Upper East Side, close to many major museums and world-famous boutiques and art galleries. 

The building has considerable light and air and many good views because the block across Madison Avenue consists of many distinguished, low-rise townhouses. " Read Carter's Full Review
