313 Fifth Avenue

A once-proud brownstone mansion, 313 Fifth Avenue was constructed for the Murdock Family in 1853 and was considered an outlier in terms of location, at the very northernost bounderies of respectable addresses.  The building’s later tenants included the art gallery Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, whose exhibition roster included Claude Monet. A well-intentioned paint job and an unattractive commercial ground floor are offset by the survival of original Greek Revival windows.
