875 Park avenue is a beige limestone behemoth that stands on the east side of Park Avenue and 78th Street taking up most of the block. The beige brick and limestone covers almost all of the building, providing a unified color palate which allows the eye to really focus on the intricate brickwork and design that makes up the façade. While many other classic buildings use color and texture shifts to highlight design elements, the mono-color provides a nice subtlety for the art deco flourishes that lend an air of austerity and playfulness. The entryway has a beautiful double door and stairs leading up to the lobby. Built in 1912 by George and Edward Blum the building is 12 stories tall and has 50 residential apartments.
