960 Fifth Avenue

Co-op located in Upper East Side, between East 77th Street & East 78th Street

Description of 960 Fifth Avenue

Architect Rosario Candela teamed up with Warren & Wetmore, the firm behind the Grand Central Terminal, to produce the limestone-clad edifice at 960 Fifth Avenue in 1928. Many of the units within the 15-story building rise to duplex heights, some with fireplaces and double-height living rooms. An ornate metal marquee adds gravitas to the Fifth Avenue entrance, where a doorman greets residents 24 hours a day. The building has catering service for lunch and dinner, and its private dining room, the Georgian Suite, is available for private parties.

Carter Horsley's Review of 960 Fifth Avenue

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of New York's most prestigious addresses, 960 Fifth Avenue is noted for its grand apartments, most of which have different layouts, its quite lavish restaurant for the residents, the Georgian Suite, with its own entrance at 1A East 77th Street, and its large cast-iron marquee that hovers over a conventional canvas canopy.

It was cited as one of the city's 'A-plus' buildings "that signify that you are wealthy and social, that you have made it to the pinnacle of what many consider world society," observed Monique P. Yazigi in an November 23, 1997 article in The New York Times." Read Carter's Full Review
