Designed by Emery Roth with permanent residents in mind, this 15-story building in the heart of Greenwich Village opened as the Fifth Avenue Hotel upon its completion in 1926. Renovations in 1987 preserved the classic elegance of the pre-war era. A large, elegant lobby leads to a wide corridor with a carved plaster ceiling and marble mosaic panels, but the building’s most distinctive feature may be the bronze canopy on Fifth Avenue, perhaps the most impressive on this residential stretch of the famous boulevard. An enclosed sidewalk cafe extension on the avenue adds liveliness to the street. This pet-friendly building features a concierge, fitness center, laundry facilities and bike room.
Greenwich Village is home to New York University, The New School, Cooper Union and Washington Square Park, the nearly 10-acre park known for the iconic arch which rests upon its northern boundary. The Village features many row houses and pre-war buildings. Residents can enjoy numerous iconic restaurants, walks down the winding cobblestone streets, and nights out at its many clubs, which host all types of music and comedy. Life in Greenwich Village is culturally rich, with new experiences waiting just around every corner.
