Description

131 Fifth Avenue is an 8-story, 23-unit cooperative built in 1904 originally for the Roosevelt family and later part of the original Lord & Taylor Department Store. Its central location in the Ladies’ Mile Historic District puts it in close proximity to Chelsea, NoMad, Union Square, Washington Square Park and Madison Square Park, not to mention all forms of public transportation. 131 Fifth is surrounded by a fabulous array of fashion retailers and many of the world’s best restaurants.

This close-knit, well-established cooperative offers an extremely low maintenance charge to unit owners and permits pied-a-terre, guarantors, parents purchasing for children and co-purchasing, subject to board approval, and is pet-friendly. Amenities include basement storage, washer/dryer, and elevator.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome and robust Beaux-Arts style building at 131 Fifth Avenue between 19th and 20th streets was erected in 1903 for Lord & Taylor, the department store, and designed by Israels & Harder for the estate of James A. Roosevelt.  The same architects designed the cast-iron, neo-Renaissance-style building at 4 East 20th Street for the same client and tenant. 

After the store moved further uptown on the avenue in 1915, it was converted to loft space and showrooms and in 1979 the buildings were converted to 23 residential co-operative apartments with an entrance at 4 East 20th Street." Read Carter's Full Review
