315 Fifth Avenue

The Rock Building at 315 Fifth Avenue is a handsome 1906 design by Maynicke & Franke.  Featuring numerous Baroque details, it is similar in scale and effect to many of the firm’s buildings further south on The Ladies Mile.  The renowned bookstore Brentano’s was the original ground floor tenant.

The façade has been recently cleaned and restored; the green and gold cast iron window surrounds are a notable detail.
