302 Fifth Avenue

Designed in 1915 by brothers George and Edward Blum, 302 Fifth Avenue follows the type of office building established by Robert Maynicke and similar architects in the Ladies’ Mile to the south.

The Blum Brothers were renowned for the quality and originality of their designs, which featured mosaic-like treatments of walls, sinuous ironwork and elegant sculptural detailing; at 302 Fifth Avenue they operated in a professional but decidedly more conservative mode.
