Off Millionaires’ Row, Lauded Parisian Firm Designs Vintage Condo at 27 East 79th Street

Beaux-Arts architecture is alive and well on the Upper East Side. On East 79th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues, is one of the most architecturally stunning crosstown blocks in Manhattan. Coined as “the Cook Block,” the south side is lined with a pristine row of Gilded Age mansions – including that of former mayor Michael Bloomberg. The north side is filled with elegant townhouses and mid-rise coops such as 9 and 21 East 79th Street.
