Designated Landmark New York City

New York Yacht Club
The New York Yacht Club building is one of the most expressive examples of Beaux-Arts architecture in the country. Dedicated in 1901, the clubhouse was the first New York City commission of architects Warren & Wetmore, establishing the firm's distinguished reputation. The limestone façade of the New York Yacht Club is sculpted with nautical motifs featuring a trio of windows carved to resemble the sterns of seventeenth-century Dutch yachts, as well as ornamental seashells, dolphins and dripping seaweed. Constructed on land donated by Commodore J. Pierpont Morgan, the club's sixth home has become a well-known symbol of the nation's oldest yachting organization, in continuous existence since 1844. The celebrated America's Cup, first won in 1851 by the schooner America in a regatta at Cowes, England, was deeded to the club in 1857.
