residentialWashington Square Apartment IIhideDesigned by architects Emery Roth and Sons for builder Samuel Rudin, the building was completed and first occupied in 1951. The main entrance to the building is via a semi-circular driveway located mid-block on Fifth Avenue. From there, you can see the building’s two sections. The twenty-story, light, glazed brick structure is the bulk of the building. The rest, a low, five-story red brick portion facing Washington Square, was designed in scale with the row of townhouses adjoining the building to the West.
