1 Fifth Avenue

Co-op located in Greenwich Village, between Waverly Place & East 8th Street

Description of 1 Fifth Avenue

One Fifth Avenue is a Greenwich Village icon that is as much a centerpiece of classic views of Washington Square Park as is the park’s triumphal arch. The 1927 co-op was designed by visionary architect Harvey Wiley Corbett in partnership with esteemed architecture firm of Sugarman & Berger in bold Art Deco that incorporates novel elements such as chamfered corners with angled windows, which add light, air, views, and grandeur to apartments; telescoping setbacks that house spacious terraces; and a lively, light-hued exterior that combines Gothic architecture with a vertical Jazz Age style.


As befits the singular address at the helm of one of New York’s most prestigious residential thoroughfares, One Fifth Avenue offers white-glove service by a 24-hour doorman/concierge, as well as a bike room (useful for taking the adjacent Fifth Avenue bike lane), laundry room, and a live-in superintendent. The 27-story tower soars high above the historic district where it is located and offers panoramic views of Washington Square and the skyline even from lower-level units. To the south, the building faces Washington Mews, a gated, cobblestone-paved alley lined with historic townhouses.


Without exaggeration, one would be hard-pressed to find a better residential location in all of New York City. In addition to lively Washington Square situated immediately to the south, the building also sits several blocks away from Union Square and within walking distance of famed shopping, dining, arts, and entertainment in Greenwich Village, SoHo, NoHo, the East Village, and Chelsea. Both Downtown and Midtown lie within a five- to ten-minute commute via a multitude of nearby subway options.


The pet-friendly co-op requires a 35% down payment and allows pied-a-terres.

Carter Horsley's Review of 1 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"An isolated skyscraper, a rarity in Manhattan, One Fifth Avenue was one of the first Art Deco towers in the city and it dominates Lower Fifth Avenue, Washington Square Park and Greenwich Village.

Its dark brown masonry and strong verticality make this tall setback tower quite monolithic." Read Carter's Full Review
