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.

2049 Fifth Avenue

Like its neighbor to the south, 2049 Fifth Avenue was built in 1921 – but, despite being the less interesting design, appears to have held on to its original facade a bit better overall.

2041 Fifth Avenue

Built in 1921, 2041 Fifth Avenue is a late example of the Beaux Arts style – well-proportioned, but sadly shorn of its upper cornices and some other detailing.
