Description

This handsome apartment building at 863 Park Avenue on the northeast corner at 77th Street was erected in 1908 by William J. Taylor who also built 925 Park Avenue and the two buildings, which have multi-level units, "are the oldest luxury apartment buildings to survive on Park," Christopher Gray wrote in the July 12, 1998 "Streetscapes" article in The New York Times when the building installed new windows.

Mr. Taylor also built 563, 823 and 829 Park Avenue, along with 140 West 57th Street and 130 East 67th Street and Mr. Gray noted that he "told The Real Estate Record and Guide that "we do not promote schemes" but rather only help out "when a few friends get together."

The building was designed by Pollard & Steinham.  It has 25 co-operative apartments.
