Designated Landmark New York CityDesigned by architects Warren & Wetmore, 230 Park Avenue was built in 1927-29 as the New York Central Building, sitting astride Park Avenue just north of Grand Central Terminal. The building's honeycombed base and slender tower dominate the street corridor, while its glowing pyramidal roof, capped by an ornate cupola, shines among New York's constellation of illuminated towers.
The structure is exceptional for its superb engineering and innovative traffic circulation patterns, accommodating the flow of both midtown vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The New York Central Railroad considered 230 Park Avenue the crowning achievement of its terminal city complex of hotels and offices.
