2 West 129th Street incorporates a corner bay into a standard Beaux Arts design of the period similar to that two blocks south at West 127th Street. It is one of the relatively few mixed-use buildings on this stretch of Fifth.
2 East 129th Street is a solidly constructed but rather surprisingly plodding block of drab brick that lacks even the residual glamour of a Fifth Avenue address. Planting ivy might help – and might in fact have been the builder’s original idea.
2077 Fifth Avenue, also known as the St. Claire, is a recently constructed condominium residence. As such, it is an non-committal addition to the streetscape.
2-4 East 128th Street has the detailing and overall “feel” of a traditional brownstone house, although it was constructed as a multi-family dwelling.
2071 Fifth Avenue, also known as the Abingdon, is a well-kept Beaux Arts design.
