A classic, pre-war, Sutton home
I've just brought this special one bedroom apartment back on the market, with it's price improved to $625,000 an excellent value for a location and building of this quality. It is very sunny and quiet, in one of noted architect Emery Roth's buildings for Bing & Bing in Sutton. Well proportioned, with a powder room, and white glove, doorman service; this is an understated and elegant, Upper East Side, co-op home.
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 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 1980'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."
