As the cover says "740, Park Avenue is the pinnacle of social ascent, the best-known and most lusted-after apartment building in New York City.........." and that's about it really. For those who are fascinated by and are covetous of that rarefied collection of individuals whose wealth or their parents or spouses hand-downs, that can afford the obscenely extortionate 'key-money' and the rigours of appearing before the Co-operative Approval Inquisition, then this is the book for you.
Again quoting from the book's blurb "Tantalizing....intimate....intriguing. Sneaks the reader past the doorman," and gives you the low down, likes, dislikes, eccentricities, dalliances, background and excesses of the most famous of its residents.
Although wholly inconsequential in the general game-plan of life's relevancies, "700, Park" does cater to our more basic envy and 'nosey' instincts and to this end has been well researched and written.
