Commercial Block, Bank between Fifth and Fourth, east side

The building  shown in these photos was originally built in stage as several separate structures for separate businesses in the block between Fifth and Fourth Avenues between 1896 and 1909. The photos here were taken in 1974, and were profiled in a 1998 25th Anniversary edition of the Glebe Report.

 Now this appears as one continuous facade that fronts the more recent Fifth Avenue Court (and interior courtyard and addition at the back).

The main change was the removal of the building right at the corner of fifth avenue.
