1020 Fifth Avenue is one of the supreme residential cooperative buildings of New York. The building is located across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one block north of its main entrance. This limestone-clad apartment building was built in 1925 and designed by Warren & Wetmore (who designed Grand Central Terminal). The facade has six giant banks of windows that rise above 5th Ave. and 83rd St. and hint at dramatic apartment layouts. The base has four two-story arches on Fifth Avenue and six on the E. 83rd St. side, where the entrance is located. The fifth floor windows have balustrades at their base, and balustrades and iron railings are also found at the top of the building. There is a maisonette apartment with its own entrance on the avenue. The other 12 apartments that spread out over 14 stories including a penthouse is a triplex still with some of the original finishes. There are 18-foot ceilings, fireplaces in each master bedroom and views of Central Park. This white-glove, full service building has full-time doorman, full-time concierge, laundry room, roof deck and storage.
