14 Fifth Avenue

The first of Fifth Avenue’s architectural duds, 14 Fifth is all that remains of the two northernmost Gothic Revival brownstone houses constructed by Henry Brevoort, now combined into one apartment building. All original details have been removed and a dull stucco façade replaces the design still visible at 10 Fifth.

An ambitious developer might consider partial restoration of the façade, but until (and unless) this happens the building is an eyesore on an otherwise distinguished block.
