Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This impressive 12-story apartment house at 521 Park Avenue on the northeast corner at 61st Street was designed by William Alciprhon Boring and completed in 1911 two years after he had designed 540 Park Avenue on the northwest corner at 61st Street, which has been described, according to James Trager, the author of Park Avenue, Street of Dreams," (Atheneum, 1990), as "the first of the high-class apartments to be built on Park Avenue."

This building was erected as a co-operative and has 27 apartments and was converted to a condominium in 1987. Amenities at this pet-friendly building include a 24-hour doorman, elevator, and fitness center.
