40 Fifth Avenue Overview

The most elegant high-rise apartment building on Lower Fifth Avenue and in Greenwich Village, this 15-story building was erected as a cooperative in 1929. With its tall, distinctive watertower enclosure, the building has always been a landmark, especially since it rises above the historic churches immediately to the north and south. To the north, across 11th Street, the building faces the large, fenced garden of the First Presbyterian Church, designed in 1846 by Joseph C. Wells, and to the south it shares its avenue blockfront with the Ascension Episcopal Church and its fenced garden with John La Farge mural inside. It could well be argued that its setting is the finest in the city as not only are its views maximized, they are lovely. The surrounding Lower Fifth Avenue buildings are of high quality as well. The building, which has elevator persons and its own private garden, is surrounded by hedges and has a very attractive sidestreet entrance, is finely detailed with limestone trim and red brick. It has 76 large apartments and its long façade is on 11th Street, which is one of the prettiest streets in the city.
