NYC - Greenwich Village: One Fifth Avenue

The imposing One Fifth Avenue was raised over Washington Square Park in 1929 through the partnership of two associated architectural firms--Helmle, Corbett & Harrison and Sugarman, & Berger, with Harvey Wiley Corbett as chief architect.

 

The art deco 29-story structure culminates in a single central tower, and the building's facade of sleek brown brick is accented with fine masonry and gargoyles. The typical floor at 1 Fifth Avenue is home to approximately ten units which are serviced by three passenger elevators. The building features a few studios, more than 60 one-bedrooms, and over 100 two-bedroom units.
