The Senator Robert A. Taft Houses, 1345-1395 Fifth Avenue

The Senator Robert A. Taft Houses face the Martin Luther King Houses over Fifth Avenue for a three-block stretch between 1345 and 1395 Fifth Avenue.  Constructed in 1964 as low-income housing, they may appear bleak to contemporary eyes but have provided homes to generations of New Yorkers since their completion.

DeYoung, Moskowitz & Rosenberg were the architects.
