23 Park Avenue was built as a private residence in 1891 by renowned architect, Stanford White. One of the most prominent architects of the late 19th Century, Stanford White is responsible for social clubs and residences throughout New York City and among others, the Washington Square Arch and the original Madison Square Garden. Built for James Robb, a New York state senator and commissioner of the Parks Department, 23 Park Avenue later served as a private club before being converted into a cooperative apartment house in 1977. There are five floors and seventeen apartments. This grand and elegant building, conveniently situated in the center of Murray Hill on Park Avenue, is pet friendly and has a full-time superintendent. As quoted by the Landmarks Preservation Commission: 23 Park Avenue is "a significant reminder of the history of Murray Hill as an elegant residential district".


This stunning Park Avenue home occupies the parlor and third floor and has been completely renovated while preserving many original details. All rooms face onto Park Avenue and East 35th Street providing stunning sunlight from morning until night and a view of the Empire State building from all major rooms. Formerly "the grand hall", which was the centerpiece of the parlor floor, the dramatic corner living room features 20' ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace and an ornate exterior balcony that stretches 18' along the south side overlooking cherry blossoms. Up one flight is the kitchen with walk-in pantry and the formal dining area overlooking the living room. The kitchen features a stainless double Viking cooktop, double ovens and a Subzero refrigerator. The fully renovated top floor features three large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, many closets, a washer/dryer and a charming terrace overlooking Park Avenue.
