✎ The site had been occupied since the early 1890s by the Hotel New Netherland, designed by William Hume for William Waldorf Astor. The building that was to replace it would occupy the same footprint and frontage on Fifth Ave. The Sherry-Netherland Hotel is a 38-story apartment-hotel designed and built by Schultze & Weaver with Buchman & Kahn and completed in 1927. The building is 570 feet tall and was noted as the tallest apartment-hotel in New York City when it opened. Today, it houses 165 apartments that were converted to co-ops in 1954. There are 54 hotel rooms & suites and in the tower above the 24th floor there are single apartments to a floor. The French Gothic/French Renaissance Chateauesque roofline with gargoyles disguises the water tower. The Sherry-Netherland is located within the Upper East Side Historic District, which was designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1981.
