828 Fifth Avenue was built in 1885. This building was described by famous architectural historian John Taurananc as “about as close to Versailles” as any other residential building in New York City.
These apartments are all beautifully unique, with varying layouts that include a duplex, a maisonette, two full-floor apartments, and four smaller apartments that are still quite spacious compared to others in Manhattan. There are a number of wonderful pre-war details incorporated into these apartments, including high ceilings, grand entry galleries, formal dining rooms, and terraces. Pets are allowed.
