Carter Horsley's Review of 817 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The 14-story building at 817 Fifth Avenue on the southeast corner at 63rd Street is one of the more attractive and luxurious pre-war apartment buildings in New York City. 

Unlike its few peers at the top of the residential ladder, this one has managed to maintain quite a low profile over the years, at least as measured by celebrity-watchers. " Read Carter's Full Review
