40 East 66th Vs. Carlton HouseThis week we will be comparing two Madison Avenue Pre-war buildings that are located in 60s.

40 East 66th Street is a classic art deco designed building built by Rosario Candela in 1929.  It has an impressive façade with a two story limestone base and the rest of the building being red brick. The building was converted in 2008 by Vornado into a condominium and it is one of very few condos on Madison Avenue.

A few blocks south and you can find 21 East 61st Street also known as The Carlton House. This prewar building is currently under construction and being converted into a condop building by Extell Partners.  Apartments here will range in size from 2 to 5 bedrooms and there will only be 69 of them.
