923 Fifth Avenue

Designed by Sylvan Bien in 1951, 923 Fifth Avenue is a classic white brick apartment house featuring an attractive sunken lobby and corner balconies, many of which have been filled in. Bronze elevator doors provide a note of pre-war glamour.

900 Fifth Avenue

Designed by Sylvan and Robert Bien in 1960, 900 Fifth Avenue sports a pair of highly unusual double bays finished with gray-metal spandrels. Their presence and the building’s adjacency to the Frick Collection give the apartments excellent views.

860 Fifth Avenue

Far more sedate than its whimsical neighbor to the south, 860 Fifth Avenue was constructed in 1950. Designed by Sylvan Bien, the building incorporates recessed balconies and is capped off with a handsome water tank enclosure.
