Carter Horsley's Review of The Newbury

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This strongly articulated 32-story apartment tower was an early and important high-rise pioneer in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. The building has a plaza with retail frontage on 86th Street and it is set back in extensive landscaping behind an attractive fence on Second Avenue and has an impressive, landscaped entrance with a driveway on the sidestreet. The neighborhood has undergone widespread redevelopment since this building was erected in 1971. The 258-unit building, which has a concierge and a garage as well as a rooftop health club, swimming pool, bike room, and storage, was converted to a cooperative in 1980. 

The building is convenient to many movie theaters, restaurants and stores. Crosstown buses run very frequently on 86th Street, and residents have their pick of subway stops on Lexington Avenue and Second Avenue. Many of the apartments have balconies and most have good views." Read Carter's Full Review
