923 Fifth Avenue

By Carter B. Horsley

This pleasant, 21-story apartment building was one of the first to be erected on Fifth Avenue after World War II. It was developed by Sam Minskoff & Sons.

Across the park from the boat pond in Central Park, the building has a wonderful, highly desirable location and great views from many apartments.
