Description

The 26-story tower at 980 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 79th Street was erected as a cooperative in 1966 on the site of a chateau-like mansion that had been erected by Isaac Vail Brokaw in 1887. Located on Museum Mile, 980 Fifth Avenue sits across from Central Park, and is one block away from world-class shopping and restaurants on Madison Avenue. Pieds a terre permitted, as are pets (1 dog or 1 cat per apartment, with board approval).

The controversial demolition of the Brokaw mansion was a factor in the city's creation of a landmarks preservation law as it happened about the same time as the demolition of the former Pennsylvania Station in midtown and help to arouse the public to the loss of important architectural monuments. 

The building was developed by Campagna Construction Corporation. 

The 45-unit building was designed by Paul Resnick and H. F. Green.
