1016 Fifth Avenue, built-in 1926, is located on one of the most prestigious streets of Manhattan, directly across from Central Park. The charming façade and unique construction was designed by architect John B. Peterkin. It is one of the most distinctive buildings in the neighborhood due to its unique limestone and landscaped sidewalks. This building features a full-time doorman and a well-equipped fitness room. It is also close to many of New York City's finest museums, including the Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Neue Gallery.
