919 Third Avenue

919 Third Avenue is an office building in New York City, built in 1971, and is located at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and East 55th Street in Manhattan. 919 Third Avenue The building is 615 feet (181 meters) tall with 47 floors. The building was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP.

During the mid-1960s, in what the New York Times called "one of the most unusual Manhattan real estate transactions in recent years", developers of the new skyscraper decided to build around a 3rd Avenue landmark -- P.J. Clarke's bar and restaurant. The property owner, at the time, refused to sell to the developers.

In July 1996, two repairmen almost lost their lives when a gust of wind smashed their scaffold through a window.

Notable occupants of 919 Third Avenue include Debevoise & Plimpton, BNP Paribas and Schulte Roth & Zabel.
