The Lighthouse International Building is located on 111 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022, between 59th and 69th Street. The structure was completed in 1962, tops out at 14 stories, reaches a height of 185 feet, and contains over 180,000 square feet of office space for rent. As 111 E 59th St is a medium-sized structure, it can be well-suited for small or mid-sized organizations that are not looking for large blocks of contiguous office space. Medium sized buildings in New York City are plentiful and are quite diverse in size and class offerings. As a result, barring any large organizations needing premium, contiguous space, middle-sized buildings can service a vast number of organizations. The Lighthouse International Building has been renovated at numerous time throughout its history. The improvements have served to improve the office space to modern standards as well as keep building lobby and infrastructure functional and up-to-date. The Lighthouse International Building is located in Midtown, which is Manhattan’s premier business district. Midtown Manhattan features a huge amount of commercial real estate and is one of the most densely populated pieces of land in the world. There are a huge number of skyscrapers, hotels, restaurants, retailers, bus stops, and train stations that saturate the neighborhood with high quality tenants and both native and tourist foot traffic. The result is a great selection of office space for tenants, and huge foot traffic numbers for retailers. 111 East 59th St. is highly accessible thanks to New York City’s extensive bus and train network. The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) features a huge bus network which make nearly all portions of the city accessible. In addition, the building lies in close proximity to the MTA’s blue, green, yellow, and orange subway lines. These transportation options help make the building easily accessible.

    Get to Know Park Avenue

    Park Avenue is known for housing a number of Fortune 500 companies and other businesses. The following companies are headquartered or have some offices located in the neighborhood: Mutual of America, Hachette Book Group, British Airways, Major League Baseball, Maserati, and The National Football League.

    Because Park Avenue has some of the nation’s most expensive real estate, it’s no surprise that so many CEOs and billionaires choose to live there. 740 Park Avenue, known as one of NYC’s “Towers of Power,” will only consider applicants who have a net worth of at least $100 million. Current resident Stephen Schwarzman, Blackstone founder, lives in the triplex once owned by John D. Rockefeller. Hedge fund manager David Ganek owns a duplex in 740 Park Avenue that’s now worth $32.5 million. Park Avenue is also home to 432 Park, which is the best-selling building ever in NYC; it’s already closed sales for more than $2 billion.

    Though Park Avenue isn’t really a tourist destination, it is one of the best-looking boulevards in New York City. That’s because the Fund for Park Avenue provides funding for upkeep and maintains the numerous flower boxes that decorate the median between the north and south traffic. The area does feature some interesting architecture, including the Medieval Gothic designed Seventh Regiment Armory that’s known for its picturesque interior. Other landmarks of note include Ritz Tower, the Helmsley Building, St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, Harold Pratt House, and Perishing Square Building.

    Park Avenue served as a filming location in many well-known movies, the Park Avenue Viaduct in particular.  For example, Will Smith jumps off the Viaduct to chase a criminal in Men in Black. In I Am Legend, Will Smith is cornered by a zombie on the Viaduct. The final showdown in The Avengers also takes place on the Viaduct.
