5404-5420 and 5424 Fifth Avenue

William H. Abbott Jr., 1897
J. H. Nadigan, 1897

Designed for a mix of uses, Fifth Avenue contains buildings with retail shops at ground level and residential units above. In addition to these, the avenue is also home to religious institutions, firehouses, police stations, schools, banks and other commercial properties. One of the most architecturally distinguished sections is numbers 5404-5420, a Renaissance Revival row featuring projecting angled iron bays and metal window lintels. The brick Queen Anne building at number 5424 stands out for its pronounced corner turret and projecting bay on its 55th Street façade, which are both made of pressed metal.
