Carter Horsley's Review of Henderson House

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The very distinctive, 21-story apartment building at 535 East 86th Street is directly across from townhouses on Henderson Place and is known as Henderson House.

It has an indented entrance on 86th Street and a landscaped arcade along the west side of Henderson Place, which was declared part of an historic district by the city in 1969, at the same meeting at which the Dakota apartment house was declared an individual landmark." Read Carter's Full Review
