Description

The Sherry-Netherland, which rose above the Grand Army Plaza and Central Park in 1927, channels elegance from the barrel-vaulted lobby to the tip of the copper spire. Over the years, the ornate, landmarked building has hosted residents such as pilot and entrepreneur Howard Hughes, musician Diana Ross, director Francis Ford Coppola, Jim Henson of The Muppets, and TV host and judge Judy Sheindlin, better known as Judge Judy.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"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." Read Carter's Full Review
