Description

820 Fifth Avenue is located on the northeast corner of 63rd Street in the Upper East Side.

There is only one apartment per floor at 820 Fifth Avenue, providing residents with a private mini-estate overlooking Central Park and the Zoo just across the Avenue. Apartments have 44-foot-long galleries, just off the private elevator lobby to welcome guests in appropriate style. The gallery, as well as the large library, master bedroom and living- and dining-rooms, together span the residences' park-front spaces. Each of these rooms has a grand working fireplace.

To complete the impression of estate living, there are an additional four bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, maid’s quarters, a servant's hall and a secure silver closet. At street level one is greeted by a doormen at the solid brass front door that lies behind the impressive canopied entrance, which itself is flanked by a pair of outsized bronze lanterns. 820 Fifth Avenue also has a concierge. It is located a few steps away from Central Park and many shops and restaurants along Fifth Avenue.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the city's grandest apartment buildings, the 12-story limestone palazzo at 820 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 63rd Street has only one apartment per floor. 
Designed by Starrett & Van Vleck for Fred T. Ley and Company and erected in 1916, this magnificent and finely detailed building is one of the stateliest, and most expensive, apartment buildings on Fifth Avenue. " Read Carter's Full Review
