Top 10 Fifth Avenue Apartment Buildings

Fifth Avenue has exemplified luxe living ever since opulent mansions rose along Central Park in the 19th century. Between 1910 and 1930, many of the manses made way for grand high-rise apartments, which continue to offer some of the finest urban living anywhere on Earth. CityRealty’s list of Fifth Avenue’s best apartment buildings collects the crème de la crème of the city’s most prestigious address.

#1 - 998 Fifth Avenue

Co-op in Carnegie Hill

The Italian Renaissance-style palazzo, designed by the esteemed firm of McKim, Mean, and White, rose at 998 Fifth Avenue across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1912. The 12-story landmark holds just 17 units, many of which are duplexes with double-digit room counts and fireplaces. Limestone cladding extends to the interior courtyard, an uncommon luxury for all but the most rarified apartment buildings.

The arches, curves, and urns atop the limestone pinnacle of architect Rosario Candela’s 1040 Park Avenue leave an unmistakable mark on the Fifth Avenue skyline. Its 27 apartments feature spacious entrance galleries, fireplaces, and staff rooms in certain units. Front windows face the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the co-op’s longtime resident, helped relocate the 2,000-year-old Temple of Dendur from Egypt during a dam-building project.
