Description of 53 East 66th Street

Architect Mott B. Schmidt designed the stately edifice at 53 East 66th Street in a restrained style that combined Renaissance, Georgian, and Second Empire motifs in its red-brick façade, white stone trim, tall, keystone-capped windows, and a sloping mansard roof. The pre-war building features high ceilings, working fireplaces, and sprawling apartments, some of which offer dedicated staff quarters. The pet-friendly co-op includes services such as a full-time doorman, a live-in superintendent, and resident storage in the basement. The prime location between Park and Madison avenues offers convenient access to the Upper East Side’s and Midtown’s boutique shopping, fine dining, and Central Park, which sits just a block-and-a-half away.

Carter Horsley's Review of 53 East 66th Street

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very attractive, mid-block, 10-story, co-operative apartment building was erected in 1923 and has 25 units.  

It was designed by Mott B. Schmidt, the architect of major townhouses on Sutton Place, 655 and 1088 Park Avenue, and the Vincent Astor Townhouse that is now the Junior League of New York Building on East 80th Street.  His grandfather, Dr. John W. Schmidt Jr., was the first visiting surgeon at St. Vincent's Hospital and helped start the New York Academy of Medicine." Read Carter's Full Review
