Significance: The Racquet and Tennis Club building, at 370 Park Avenue in New York City, was designed by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White. The partnership--Charles R. McKim, William R. Mead and Stanford White--was established in 1879, and ended in 1919 with the retirement of Mead. The Racquet and Tennis Club, completed in 1918, was the last work undertaken by the partnership, and remains one of the firm's most polished architectural statements.
