30 Sutton Place

By Carter B. Horsley

This very handsome, 14-story, pre-war apartment building is a cooperative and has 49 units.

A red-brick building, it is diagonally across from the townhouses that share a communal garden on the east side of Sutton Place between 57th and 58th Streets and therefore it has many superb, protected views.

The elegant building has a two-story limestone base, a canopied entrance with doorman, fireplaces and some balconies. It permits protruding air-conditioners and has no garage and no health club. It is not close to a subway, but is very close to a nice park overlooking the East River.

While there is considerable traffic nearby along First Avenue going to the Queensborough Bridge at 59th Street, Sutton Place is very quiet and lovely. There is very good cross-town bus service and an excellent supermarket shares some of the vault space beneath the nearby Queensborough Bridge at 59th Street with a large restaurant.
