737 Park Avenue is a prewar residential building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Built in 1940 by Sam Minskoff and Sons, the building was designed by art deco architect Sylvan Bien.[1] The building is made of traditional red brick with a limestone base, featuring a marble lobby and 24-hour doorman. The building is within blocks of Central Park, The Frick Collection, and The Whitney Museum, as well as The Carlyle Hotel, also designed by Sylvan Bien. In 2011, 737 Park Avenue was sold to real estate developer Harry Macklowe,[2] who is currently developing the building into condominiums.
