"THIS IS A CLASSY JOINT." -Groucho Marx, in an elevator at 1040 Park Avenue in the company of the Astors and the Vanderbilts

When 1040 Park Avenue was built in 1924, its doormen regularly welcomed Rockefellers, Hammersteins, Gershwins, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henry & Clare Boothe Luce, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Charles Lindbergh, and many of more of the era's cultural and social notables. Drawn to the famous penthouse parties hosted by resident Mr. Conde Nast, the caf society enjoyed this inspiring destination du jour. The handsome yet demure creation of Delano & Aldrich -- 1040 Park Avenue -- became an instant classic.

Here's your opportunity to own a piece of history. Sweetly situated in a fabled white glove building with stupendous service and in in-house gym, this pre-war prince is chock full of history and charm. With a living room boasting imported panels and boiserrie, a practical kitchen, a peaceful and pristine bedroom, and a classic windowed bath (needs renovation), this elegant beauty -- with its high ceilings and tasteful period detail -- has a soulful and stylish grace that warms the heart. With supreme convenience to every area cultural, dining, and shopping destination, this 1040 Park treasure is an opportunity indeed. 01/31/2017 ABA To show sale call for appointment / (Brian Lewis, 212-381-2252) / Original Signed Exclusive Agreement and Disclosure Forms on File.
