Central Midtown location. Steps from Lord & Taylor and 34th Street shopping promenade. Great city views from the higher floors.
The Not So Good
Not a residential neighborhood and it can seem isolated at night. Not close to grocery stores or restaurants.
The Bottom Line
For those who consider location an important factor, 425 Fifth Ave may be ideal, however at this price range, there may be some other comparable options in better residential neighborhoods.
Each of the modern residences of 425 Fifth Avenue feature wood floors, large living rooms, and high-reaching windows. Bathrooms have soaking tubs and separate glass-enclosed shower stalls, and feature Italian tiles and marble. Stainless steel appliances and black granite countertops with cherry wood cabinets outfit each kitchen. Condos on the higher floors of the 54-story building enjoy views of the Empire State Building and as far down as the Financial District.
The Michael Graves designed building on the northeast corner of 38th Street and Fifth Avenue houses 172 residences on 54 floors above retail and office spaces. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, theater room, fitness center, indoor pool, children’s playroom, outdoor patio and roof deck, and a sauna and steam room.
Located in Midtown South, 425 Fifth Avenue offers easy access to subway lines, some of the best retail shopping in the city, and the New York Public Library’s main branch.
