Not bad. The area is kind of gritty. It looks like the former Potampkin Cadillac garage across the street is finally being razed. (Demolition netting over the garage seems to appear in this photo.)

Perkins Eastman is designing a roughly 15 story tower for that site, 1129 York Ave., which Witkoff Properties bought.

Ground, Hearts Break at Sutton Place North as View Dims



Sequels don't have to be the worst. A lot of people think the The Empire Strikes Back and The Godfather Part II were superior to their cinematic predecessors. But if you live in a 42-story glass curtain-walled tower with unobstructed views of the East River and points north, south, and east, a sequel building rising directly in front of you is going to get thumbs down reviews. That is the case these days over on Sutton Place North, aka York Avenue between 60th and 61st Streets, where ground has broken on Two Sutton Place North. Its footprint is situated diagonally in front of the extant One Sutton Place North, and will eventually stand between the original tower and views of the Queensboro Bridge, the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island, and the East River. The two buildings are expected to be the same height.
