59 Fifth Avenue

59 Fifth Avenue is one of the few original houses to survive from the earliest period of Lower Fifth Avenue’s development, albeit in a very altered form.  The first two floors were rebuilt as a sophisticated commercial duplex that housed a variety of restaurants; above, the original windows of a house from the 1850s can be seen.

The building’s commercial space is currently vacant.
