By Carter B. Horsley

This very handsome, 14-story, red-brick apartment building was erected in 1928. It is a cooperative and has only 10 units.

One of the nicest buildings in the Sutton Place area, this has a two-story limestone base, sidewalk landscaping, high ceilings, large apartments, consistent fenestration and a doorman. It has considerable "light-and-air" because of the low-rise, townhouse block on the west side of Sutton Place between 57th & 58th Streets. It permits protruding air-conditioners and has no garage, no balconies 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.
