Description

998 Fifth Avenue contains 17 opulent residences and sits on the northeast corner of 81st Street across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

It is designed with six duplexes, which are all located on the southern corner, and 11 simplexes, each of which has seventeen rooms. The layouts are invariably magnificent with large entry halls, vast public spaces, sweeping stairways in the duplexes and at least 10-and-a-half foot ceilings throughout. From the start, 998 Fifth Avenue included marble framed doorways, a central vacuum-cleaning system, refrigerated wine cellars, safes for jewelry and silver, laundries with steam-drying devices, basement storage rooms and ample servants’ quarters. Since becoming a cooperative in 1953, apartments have been augmented with several more layers of luxe, including dazzling new kitchens and updated fixtures.

In 1974, 998 Fifth Avenue became a city Landmark. It is convenient to Central Park, the Met and many boutiques and shops.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the world’s grandest apartment buildings, 998 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 81st Street was designed by McKim, Mead & White, the architectural firm that designed the Pennsylvania Station that was demolished in 1964.

An inflated Italian Renaissance-style palazzo structure, the building would delight the Medicis and is widely credited with convincing New York’s very rich that apartments were acceptable habitats. " Read Carter's Full Review
