715 Park Avenue was one of the first apartment buildings constructed on Park Avenue after World War II. Today, it is known as a city landmark and is surrounded by some of the most expensive cooperative buildings in New York.
Park Avenue was originally known as Fourth Avenue and carried the tracks of the New York and Harlem Railroad in the 1830s. The railroad originally cut through Murray Hill and was covered in grates and grass. A section of this area was renamed Park Avenue in 1860. 
Today, Park Avenue is famous for its offices and apartment buildings. The entire area is known as the Upper East Side. This neighborhood is home to a variety of families and singles. Most people living there have either a Bachelors or Graduate degree. The low temperature in January is 26.2 degrees Fahrenheit and the high in July is 84.2 degrees Fahrenheit. 
715 Park Avenue is across from the famous Asia Society. The Asia Society is a non-profit organization that focuses on educating the world about Asia. It was founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller III and today, works to address Asian American issues including globalization, human rights, status of women and environmental and global health issues.
