1345 Avenue of the Americas, also known as the Alliance Bernstein Building, is a 625 ft (191m) tall skyscraper in New York City, New York. Located on Sixth Avenue between 54th and 55th Streets, the 50 story building was built by Fisher Brothers and completed in 1969. Originally known as Burlington House, the building was designed by Emery Roth & Sons and is the 68th tallest in New York City. It is an unrelieved slab structure in the International Style, sometimes referred to as "corporate" style, faced with dark glass. Its small plaza is dominated by its sprinkling fountain like a dandelion seedhead. It replaced the original Ziegfeld Theatre.

A base station atop the building was used on April 3, 1973, by Martin Cooper to make the world's first handheld cellular phone call in public. Cooper, a Motorola inventor, called rival Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs to tell him about the invention. Engel was staying across the street in the Hilton New York.

In the film Spider-Man 3 (2007), 1345 Avenue of the Americas is the building Gwen Stacy fell from in the crane scene.
