Park Avenue, North from 34th Street - 1930


Park Avenue, looking north from the entrance of the old Vanderbilt Hotel at East 34th Street. Photo shows street scene and buildings along the east side.

The 16-story building, on the right (15-17 Park Avenue, corner of 35th Street), was completed in 1924 and still exists.

The five story building at the northeast corner of 35th Street was the old James Hampden Robb mansion (23 Park Avenue), designed by Stanford White and completed about 1891. It housed the Advertising Club of New York, from 1923 to 1977. Later, it became a cooperative residence.

Behind the old Robb mansion may be seen the skeleton of the 24-story Town House apartments at 108 East 38th Street, under construction.

In the right background, The Chrysler Building is also under construction. It was completed on May 27, 1930. In the left background, the New York Central Building, 230 Park Avenue at 46th Street, tower over the Grand Central Terminal. A very small part of the old Community Church can be seen on the left. It was demolished in 1931 and replaced by the apartment-hotel 10 Park Avenue.
