Park Avenue Building - Photos

The northern elevation faces onto the alley and has one bay ornamented in the same manner as the Park Avenue facade.

In 2018, after Ralph Sachs' death, his estate sold the Park Avenue to a developer for about $5 million. Cleaning out the building cost was estimated $1 million, with renovations expected to cost between $10 and $15 million. The Park Avenue is supposed to feature up to 100 apartments, as well as storefronts on the first floor.
