927 Fifth Avenue is an upscale residential apartment building in Manhattan, New York City. It is located on Fifth Avenue at the corner of East 74th Street opposite the Model Sailboat Pond in Central Park. The limestone-clad building was designed by Warren & Wetmore, also known for the Grand Central Terminal, and completed in 1917 in the Renaissance Revival style.
The co-op became well-known when Pale Male, a Red-tailed Hawk that nests on ornamental stonework above a 12th-floor window, was featured an episode of the PBS series Nature. It later gained international notoriety when the board of the cooperative decided to evict the hawks in December 2004. Protests and widespread negative news coverage led to the restoration of the nest three weeks later.
