This attractive, beige-brick apartment building at 1255 Fifth Avenue was built in 1925 and renovated as a condominium in 1985.

The 8-story building has about 65 apartments.

The building has a two-story rusticated base, stringcourses above the second and the sixth floors and a cornice above the seventh floor.

The top floor does not relate contextually to the rest of the building, which has a canopied entrance and doorman, concierge and live-in superintendent.

This building is near the north end of Fifth Avenue’s famous "museum mile." The Museum of African Art is building a facility two blocks to the north and the Museum of El Barrio and the Museum of the City of New York are a couple of blocks to the south. Mt. Sinai Hospital is several blocks to the south and further south is The Jewish Museum, the Cooper Hewitt Museum of Design, the National Academy, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Neue Gallerie, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Frick Collection.

This building has a roof deck, discrete air-conditioning units and sidewalk landscaping and a one-step-up entrance. It also has a health club and a laundry room and many apartments have high ceilings.

In December, 2008, a 3,042-square-foot loft in the building that had been owned by Annie Liebovitz, the photographer, was put on the market.

The building is close to the Harlem Meer and the Conservatory Gardens, both in Central Park.
