Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This condominium apartment building was converted in late 1999 from a former 11-story office building that was built in 1950 and designed by Harry M. Prince for the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.
It is directly across 65th Street from Temple Emanu-El, the city's most socially prestigious synagogue." Read Carter's Full Review
