Historic New York

Occupying its place on Central Park since the 1920s, 1212 Fifth Avenue exemplifies the craftsmanship and attention to detail that distinguishes pre war architecture. The building was designed in 1925 by George and Edward Blum, brothers who trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
