This building originally housed the auction galleries of Parke-Bernet, which merged with Sotheby’s in 1964. The auction house is now on East 72nd Street and York Avenue, but its real estate division is still located in this building. The bronze allegorical sculpture on its fa§ade by Wheeler Williams, representing Venus and Manhattan, symbolizes enlightenment brought to the city through the arts of distant lands.
