New listing in a classic Bing & Bing, pre-war bulding
Alexander and Leo Bing were considered NYC's leading property developers at the turn of the 20th Century. They were brothers who built apartment houses in Manhattan in the twenties and thirties, which have since been converted to cooperative ownership.They often collaborated with noted architect Emery Roth, who also designed some of Central Park West's iconic buildings including The Beresford, The Eldorado, and The San Remo. In covering the sale of a portfolio of 29 Bing & Bing properties in the 80's, the New York Times described them: "The Bing & Bing buildings are regarded as among the city's finest prewar properties. The company, a development and management concern founded in 1906, built hotels and apartments at a time when luxurious in New York was still synonymous with spacious."
I'm representing this sunny, quiet one bedroom apartment in one of Roth's buildings for Bing & Bing at 435 East 57th Street in Sutton. Well proportioned rooms, a powder room and white glove doorman service make this a classic city co-op home. You can see the listing here and download a fact sheet for more Information. Its being shown by appointment daily.
