Everything looks better from beautiful Roosevelt Island, which is easily accessible by the Roosevelt Island Tramway or the F line. Eastwood 536 Street was originally made by the exceptional architect, Josep Lluis Sert and today enjoys a reputation as one of the four WIRE buildings.
This concrete building brings to mind the angular design concepts of modern architecture. Conveniently situated, Eastwood stands tall at 536 Main Street in the Roosevelt Island neighborhood. Run by the courteous and friendly team at Urban American, the complex has about a quarter of its units reserved for disabled or elderly tenants. The high rise was built in 1976 and still remains the largest apartment complex on the island. The elevator building uses triple-loading doors and only requires public corridors on three floors. The duplex style apartment units are spacious and open, providing select residential homes with a glimpse of the Manhattan skyline. Residents can enjoy the close proximity to restaurants, cafes and shopping in the area. With such a storied past and exceptional neighborhood, it is no surprise that so many people choose to call the complex at 536th Main Street home.
