“Once home to Marlon Brando and novelist Dawn Powell, 43 Fifth Avenue defines grandeur. Completed in 1905 and converted to cooperative in 1978, this 11-story Beaux Arts residence, with its dry moat, bay windows and wrought-iron balconies, is an elegant example of the stately pre-war apartment houses for which Lower Fifth Avenue is known. A grand entrance, framed by limestone lampposts, leads to an extraordinarily ornate marble lobby, attended by a 24-hour doorman. Its sizable homes, with their soaring, 10-1/2 foot ceilings, boast an eclectic variety of original details. 42 residences. (Source: https://streeteasy.com/building/43-5-avenue-new_york)”
