Imagine living as only Rosario Candela could have designed it. When 2/3C was first designed, it was thought to be perfection in the sense that it struck the balance between the grandeur of townhouse living in New York city and the important benefits of living in a full service building.
Apartment 2/3C has not been offered for sale for over 60 years. This five bedroom, spacious and extremely gracious apartment has 10'9" ceilings, fireplaces and very large well proportioned, rooms. A beautiful staircase graces the spacious entrance gallery, an architectural element which distinguishes Candela designed apartments, from all others. The very large dining room (25'4"x 20") may be configured formally or informally. The spectacular layout of the apartment (see floor plan) permits a large number of private bedrooms combined with public space, which can be converted to the needs of any owner today. The kitchen area provides extensive storage for China and Crystal as well as the opportunity to have a great chef's kitchen. Abundant lovely light streams into the south facing public rooms and bedrooms . The outlook onto tree lined 71st Street creates a quiet and calming effect in this exceptional home. This apartment affords every opportunity to create whatever you need: study rooms, private offices, zoom spaces, your own gym or home theatre. There is a place for it all in apartment 2/3C.
740 Park Avenue is well known for not only for its glorious architecture but, also for its special place in New York Social History.

Lee, the grandfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who lived there as a child. 740 is constructed of the same limestone used in the Empire State building . Served by a staff second to none, this renowned building provides for gracious living and convenience.
