Central Park view from one of the terraces

In terms of location in New York City, it doesn't get much better than 1025 Fifth Avenue in the Upper East Side. Located across from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this area is highly desired. 1025 Fifth Avenue is actually two individual buildings separated by a garden court and a lobby right in the middle.

While most buildings in the area are from the prewar era, 1025 Fifth Avenue is from the postwar era. The two buildings that compose this cooperative are 13 stories tall and have 160 units in total. With the price for most units well above a million dollars its safe to assume that this development is oriented towards a higher end market.

Fifth Avenue is known for two things, shopping and museums. There are so many museums between 82nd and 104 Streets along Fifth Avenue that it is affectionately referred to as the Museum Mile. Residents will have to get used to sharing their community with the flocks of tourists that descend upon the neighborhood on a daily basis. Though seeing the tourists gawk at their surroundings will only make residents appreciate where they live that much more. [1]


In terms of desired neighborhoods, The Upper East Side is among the elite. Which might explain the millions of international visitors that are seemingly drawn to the area every year. It's hard to blame them. Fifth Avenue is one of the most famous places to shop in all of the world. Those searching for enlightenment head to the museum mile.

As if living in this world renowned neighborhood couldn't get any better, 1025 Fifth Avenue is located directly on Central Park. Allowing residents to simply step out of the buildings luxurious lobby and into a natural oasis. Being on Fifth Avenue means that residents won't have to travel far to access all of life's necessities. If there is a downside to this address, it's that the closest subway station is three blocks away. Though who would want to leave this neighborhood anyway? [2]


The lobby separating the two buildings. It is also responsible for providing the hole in the street wall along Fifth Avenue

1025 Fifth Avenue is composed of two structures adjacent to each other. The two structures are actually located on 83rd and 84th Streets. However, its lobby is located between the two on Fifth Avenue.

The lobby is the defining feature for 1025 Fifth Avenue as it extends 100 feet inwards from the street and features its own garden court. It provides a hole, so to speak, in the street wall along Fifth Avenue in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The lobby features an inclined concrete marquee, a marble arch and marble floors. It also has black and white terrazzo paving that serves as a welcoming sight for residents and guests alike. Just behind the lobby is a beautifully landscaped garden court.

Most units in 1025 Fifth Avenue have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Though there are a number of one, three, four and even five bedroom units that comprise the rest of the residences in the development. Most of these units have stunning views of Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. [3]

When 1025 Fifth Avenue was built, environmental sustainability in terms of construction methods wasn't considered a priority. Therefore, no sustainable building methods were utilized during its construction, though a central garden terrace was built on what would otherwise be very valuable real estate to retain a natural piece of green space for its residents.

1025 Fifth Avenue is sustainable in terms of its address since residents won't need a car for their daily errands. Nor will they need a car to get to Central Park since it is conveniently located next door. Public transit is nearby if residents feel they need a break from living on Fifth Avenue.

New York City is a world leader in sustainable living practices which includes an extensive recycling service. For more information check out the link below. [5]


The Met

Despite the two buildings that compose 1025 Fifth Avenue being located on the adjacent 82nd and 83rd streets, the complex retains its coveted Fifth Avenue address. This is because its lobby is located on Fifth Avenue. To retain this address developers purchased a turn of the century mansion, demolished it and put the lobby in its place. This probably wouldn't be possible today due to the preservation methods for historic structures that are now in place in New York City.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art or the Met as its referred to is located across the street and is the largest art museum in the United States. It has over two million works of art divided among seventeen curatorial departments. Pieces include musical instruments, costumes and weapons and armor from around the world. The museum itself opened in 1874 and is one of only a few structures that is actually built in Central Park. [6]
