  • residentialLower Fifth Avenue Apartment

    This pre-war apartment is flooded with light and an amazing art collection. The custom bronze fireplace weights the room and the custom designed Lindsey Adelman fixture over a Jim Zivic leather and steel coffee table centers it. Subtle hues and textures in chartreuse, aubergine and grey are layered throughout the room giving this room a warm and relaxed feeling.

    The lower stretch of Fifth Avenue extended the stylish neighborhood of Washington Square northwards. The high status of Fifth Avenue was confirmed in 1862, when Caroline Schermerhorn Astor settled on the southwest corner of 34th Street and the beginning of the end of its reign as a residential street was symbolized by the then Astoria Hotel on the site of her house, later linked to its neighbor as the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel (now the site of the Empire State Building).
