Carter Uncut brings New York City’s latest development news under the critical eye of resident architecture critic Carter B. Horsley. Ahead, Carter brings us his eighth installment of “Skyline Wars,” a series that examines the explosive and unprecedented supertall phenomenon that is transforming the city’s silhouette. In this post Carter looks at the “stray” supertalls rising in low slung neighborhoods.

Most of the city’s recent supertall developments have occurred in traditional high-rise commercial districts such as the Financial District, the Plaza District, downtown Brooklyn and Long Island City. Some are also sprouting in new districts such as the Hudson Yards in far West Midtown.

There are, however, some isolated “stray” supertalls that are rising up in relatively virgin tall territories, such as next to the Manhattan Bridge on the Lower East Side and Sutton Place.

45 East 89th Street, Geraldo Rivera, Upper East Side condo

Despite a string of recent on-air comments that were controversial to say the least, Geraldo Rivera is still movin’ on up. The news personality, along with his wife Erica, just nabbed a $5.6 million condo on the 40th floor of 45 East 89th Street according to city records released today. This is the couple’s second purchase in the massive Upper East Side building; they bought a 36th floor unit for $3.4 million in 2011. Geraldo’s latest acquisition is a four-bedroom, 2,500-square-foot pad with remarkable Central Park views.
