820 Fifth Avenue

820 5th Avenue, New York, NY, 10065

Overlooking Central Park is a stately co-op known by its address: 820 Fifth Avenue. A pre-war apartment building similar to those that line Fifth Avenue and populate the subsection of the Upper East Side known as Lenox Hill, where 820 Fifth Avenue stands, it is amongst the most exclusive in the city, as well as being home to some of Manhattan's powerful elite, both in the past and present. 820 Fifth Avenue's etched-stone façade echoes Italian architecture, while capturing a New York sensibility. And that's without mentioning its location at the southern end of Museum Mile, home to a line of museums famed throughout the world.

A luxury apartment building since its completion in 1916, each apartment for sale at 820 Fifth Avenue is a grand statement of refined Manhattan living. Although fully customizable, all of the apartments feature the complex and divided floor plans common in pre-war apartments, as well as some rooms not found in modern buildings, such as maids' quarters and galleries. These quaint details set 820 Fifth Avenue apartments apart from new construction developments and give it a charm all its own. The amount of detail and care put into each and every apartment is well-known: each apartment features extensive crown molding and decorative patterns often lost in today's architecture. With the building as its own best amenity, little else can be said about 820 Fifth Avenue that can match its importance as an historic and renowned co-op in Manhattan.

Lenox Hill

Lenox Hill is located right near Central Park, and retains characteristics of both the Upper East Side and Midtown East. Luxury apartment buildings stand next to elegant townhouses, mixing old and new, offering plenty of views of the East River. The area is often filled with college students from nearby Hunter College and Rockefeller University, and professionals from one of the country’s best medical institutions, Lenox Hill Hospital. The constant demand for real estate in this area has led to the building of new developments and high-rises.
