2077 Fifth Avenue, The St. Claire

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

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, The Abingdon

2071 Fifth Avenue, also known as the Abingdon, is a well-kept Beaux Arts design.

2064 & 2066 Fifth Avenue

2064 & 2066 Fifth Avenue stand together as a study in contrasts, with 2064’s Composite pilasters and neo-Dutch gable at odds with the Bauhaus-like brick cage of 2066.  The latter seems even more unfortunate in light of replacing a particularly elegant Renaissance Revival design. The brickwork is at least an attempt at contextualism.

2 East 127th Street

2 East 127th Street is a Beaux Arts apartment house shorn of its cornice.
