40 Fifth Avenue, on the south-west corner of Fifth Avenue and 11th Street, is a 15 story Neo-Georgian apartment house completed in 1929. It has been described by Paul Goldberger, an architecture critic for the New York Times, as a Park Avenue Building that must have come loose in a storm and dropped anchor down here. No Pied a Terres.
