The townhouse building at 2066 Fifth Avenue was replaced by a new construction but not all was lost. As Bespoke readers have pointed out, it appears the developer wanted to save at least a little of the past and kept the original stoop attached to the decidedly modern building. It is sort of an interesting gesture to remove so much of the facade and then decide to keep a small portion of it intact.
