Sherry Netherland Hotel Overview

A strong argument can be made that the Sherry Netherland Hotel at 781 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 59th Street is the best building in New York.

The major other contenders, of course, are the Chrysler, Empire State, Woolworth and Helmsley buildings and 570 Lexington Avenue, and some might also throw in the Plaza and Waldorf-Astoria hotels, the Seagram Building, Lever House and the San Remo apartment building.

None of those, however, really have the magic combination of romance, originality, location and drama that are to be found at the Sherry Netherland.

Other buildings are larger, taller, more ornate, more complex, and have superb locations and far more spectacular interiors, but the Sherry Netherland has a "drop dead" elegance and exoticism that is both flamboyant and reserved.

What pushes the Sherry Netherland to the top, of course, is its top - a soaring, elaborate minaret with a delicate, open, widow's walk atop an asymmetrical roof reminiscent of a French chateaux, all in delightfully green, aged copper. The asymmetrical form of the tower significantly improves its aesthetics from most angles and if it had been a square tower it would be just another great campanile, but not a visual force with which to be reckoned. The top's chimneys and large protruding gargoyles, furthermore, grasp and tame the sky like some giant's gnarled fist.
