Description

One of Park Avenue’s more exclusive apartment buildings with only one unit per floor, this 13-story, limestone-clad building at 640 Park Avenue on the northwest corner at 66th Street was erected in 1914 and converted to a co-operative in 1946.

It was designed by J. E. R. Carpenter, the leading architect of luxury apartment buildings in the city of his generation. His other Park Avenue buildings include 550, 580, 625, 630, 635, 655, 812, 950, 960 and 1050. His Fifth Avenue buildings include 810, 825, 907, 920, 950, 988, 1030, 1035, 1060, 1115, 1120, 1143, 1150, 1165 and 1170 as well as 2 East 66th Street.

The building, which has a very impressive side-street entrance, was developed by Spencer Fullerton Weaver and replaced six row houses. Mr. Weaver also developed 630 Park Avenue.
