A New Take on Park Avenue

About 230 Park Avenue

Part of Cornelius Vanderbilt’s plan, the Helmsley Building was to be the headquarters for his New York Central Railroad. Designed by Warren and Wetmore, the same firm behind the design of Grand Central Terminal, the lobby is clad in marble & bronze with gilded elevators designed with a Chinese motif. Atop the entrance rests a clock with a statue of Mercury to represent transportation, and a goddess to represent industry.
