The Links Club

 The Links Club altered and seen here by Cross & Cross c. 1916 at 36 East 62nd Street in New York City.  Co-founded by Charles Blair Macdonald of 'Ballyshear' in Southampton, the club's purpose is to promote the best interests of the game of golf.  The building began life as two c. 1890 residences that were eventually combined.  Click HERE and HERE for more on the Links Club and HERE to see the building on google street view.

A veritable bit of London transported to the UES.

Cross & Cross were so good at this sort of comfortable, rich, quiet, luxurious building
