History

620 Park Avenue was designed by J.E.R. Carpenter and constructed by Starrett Brothers construction in 1924. It features a limestone facade on the two lowest floors and a brick exterior for the upper 13 floors. It is a 15 story building featuring just 15 units each composed of a full floor. In recent years it has become known for its conservative and often exclusionary co-op board and is known to avoid famous or notorious residents.

  • In popular culture

    In the 1999 American film Being John Malkovich, 620 Park Avenue is featured as the home of John Malkovich.
