Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This twin-towered, 38-story apartment and office complex consisting of 860 and 870 United  Nations Plaza on 49th Street commands outstanding views of the United Nations to the south, Midtown to the west and the East River to the east. 

The prestigious full-block project was built in 1966 by Harrison & Abramovitz, which also served as the lead architects for the United Nations headquarters, the Time-Life building at Rockefeller Center, and the master plan for Lincoln Center. " Read Carter's Full Review
