Stepping into the new marble lobby of the Carlton Regency at 137 East 36th Street, with its wood-paneled walls and swooping corridor, is like stepping into a London hotel at the height of the mid-60s. The two tower co-op emits a vibe of European vacation stop and New York home– and it’s worth stopping by to take it in on your own.
Stephen C. Lyras
Stephen Lyras is the best example of a renaissance man New York real estate can offer. Lyras contributed designs to Greek hospitals and facilities as part of American efforts in Europe during World War II before going on to found his own firm, where he involved himself in the design process, construction and sales of his buildings all over New York state. In short, an architectural icon.
