    Get to Know the Neighborhood

    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.
