1025 Fifth Avenue is one of the most prestigious Fifth Avenue addresses, located between 83rd and 84th Streets, directly across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Unlike the prewar buildings on either side, 1025 Fifth Avenue is a postwar building, marked by a long canopy that extends deeply to the actual entrance to the building lobby, which is set-back, creating a gap between 1020 Fifth Avenue, a stately prewar co-op just south of 1025 Fifth, and three former mansions north of 1025 Fifth Avenue. The actual building is composed of two mid-block buildings on 83rd and 84th Streets that are connected only at the lobby level. These 13-floor, post-war buildings were built in 1955 by H. L. Feldman as a cooperative and has approximately 158 units total. The clever developers, unhampered by historic preservation restrictions that would come into effect in later years, purchased a turn of the century mansion designed by Ogden Codman and replaced it with 1025 Fifth’s lobby entrance in order to boast a Fifth Avenue building address when the actual buildings are located on the sidestreets.
The lobby of 1025 Fifth Avenue was designed by Raymond Loewy Associates and is one of the largest in the city, extending approximately 100 feet to connect the midblock buildings and features an attractive landscaped central courtyard. It is sleek and modern with black and white terrazzo paving and shining marble floors. This luxury cooperative offers residents a variety of amenities for comfortable living, such as a 24 hour doorman, concierge, fitness center, parking garage and pets upon board approval. The location is one of the most coveted in the city, across the street from Central Park and Metropolitan Museum, designer shops, fine dining, and some of the best NYC schools…a truly white glove experience!
