The Stuyvesant Town apartment complex is bounded by First Avenue to Avenue C at the East River, and by East 14th and East 18th Streets.
A walkway along the river passes near the northeast corner of the complex.
Views from this walkway are great, unique, and rarely seen.
This is the location.
On to the photos. Walking east on East 14th Street: Zeckendorf Towers.
