950 Fifth Avenue

Co-op located in Upper East Side, between East 76th Street & East 77th Street

Description of 950 Fifth Avenue

950 Fifth Avenue stands at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 76th Street across from Central Park, which comes into view from virtually every room thanks to the building’s slender profile and corner location. J.E.R. Carpenter, one of New York’s preeminent apartment building architects of the pre-war era, clad the edifice in a crisp, Renaissance-style façade, banded in delicate string courses near the base and top. A full-time doorman services the planter-flanked, canopied entrance with a Neoclassical portal surround, which leads to a foyer where an elevator operator lets residents arrive home in white-glove, fully-serviced style. The 14-story high-rise holds just seven apartments, most of which are sprawling duplexes with wood-burning fireplaces and dedicated service staff entrances. The building stands a few blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the 77th Street station of the 6 train.

Carter Horsley's Review of 950 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very attractive, slim apartment building at 950 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner at 76th Street was designed by J. E. R. Carpenter, the foremost architect of luxury residential buildings in the city of his generation.

This is one of his most sumptuous designs. His other buildings on Fifth Avenue include 810, 825, 907, 920, 988, 1030, 1035, 1060, 1115, 1120, 1143, 1150, 1165 and 1170 as well as 2 East 66th Street." Read Carter's Full Review
