Co-op located in Upper East Side, between East 64th Street & East 65th Street

Description of 834 Fifth Avenue

834 Fifth Avenue, which overlooks Central Park, opened in 1931.

It is 16 stories tall and contains only 24 apartments, allowing for exceedingly spacious residences. The smallest unit is a generous 4,000 square feet, while the largest is roughly 12,000 square feet. Many of these are duplexes and triplexes and while few of them are alike, they all share such features as sweeping and well-organized layouts with long galleries, huge libraries, elegant staircases, lush finishes, oversized windows and universally high ceilings that are a minimum of 11 feet. Setbacks on the higher five floors create terraces for many of the upper apartments, most of which also have working fireplaces.

834 Fifth Avenue has a canopied entrance that is manned by a doorman and 24-hour concierge service. Designed by the city’s preeminent apartment architect, Rosario Candela, it is one of his most successful developments and has attracted celebrities and business titans over its storied history.

Carter Horsley's Review of 834 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"834 Fifth Avenue is a very sumptuous, 16-story apartment building that was designed by Rosario Candela and is widely considered one of his greatest luxury apartment designs and one of the city’s most desirable cooperative residential buildings.

Erected by Anthony Campagna in 1931, it is directly across the avenue from the entrance to the Central Park Zoo." Read Carter's Full Review
