Fifth Door

24 Fifth Avenue, designed by Emery Roth, is a 15-story building in the heart of Greenwich Village that replaced the famous Brevoort mansion. It opened as the Fifth Avenue Hotel in 1926. It is now a condominium on Manhattan’s Lower Fifth “Gold Coast.” This door keeps the brass polishers busy.

About the Brevoort Mansion: George Rogers began building his country home in 1828 on the northern edge of what became Washington Square. Fifth Avenue was an unpaved road through the farmland of Henry Brevoort.
