Few doors to the east at the end of the street overlooking the East River and has a very, very impressive gateway and landscaped driveway entrance. Of course, of a different generation, style and economy, but the building entrance is pretty impressive as the slab tower is set back on the site close to 53rd Street and is approached through a lushly landscaped garden path from 52nd Street that on its own would be intimidating and gracious. The brown-brick building was erected by the Perlbinder family in 1975 and abounds in bay windows that give its façade considerable rhythm as well as excellent views. This building, which is located at on52nd Street , has 9 apartments a floor, a doorman and a concierge, a garage, a bicycle room, valet service and video security. The kitchens and bathrooms were upgraded in 1994. This is a fairly quiet street although because it is dead-end there is more traffic than on many other sidestreets. There are many restaurants in the neighbourhood and there are two parks not far away on Sutton Place to the north and of course the larger park to the south at the United Nations. There is considerable traffic on First Avenue, much of it headed for the Queensborough Bridge.
