930 Fifth Avenue

Built in 1940 and designed by Emery Roth, 930 Fifth Avenue presents a more cautious take on the Baroque flamboyance of the architect’s Central Park West buildings.  Here delicate Spanish Renaissance terra cotta frames upper stories rather in the manner of Roth’s 24 Fifth Avenue; a central tower conceals the water tank.  The marble Art Moderne lobby has been recently restored.

The building is directly opposite the charming Central Park Model Yacht Club, one of the area’s more idiosyncratic amenities.
