This elegant home was built by brothers, Elliott and John Cross (Cross & Cross) in 1930, as the "Hangar's Club", an exclusive club for business men involved in the development and financing of early aviation in America

Esteemed Architect, Peter Pennoyer and architectural Historian Ann Walker, in their book, "New York Transformed: The architecture of Cross & Cross" describe the brothers and business partners as "Masters of their craft and well connected Society men, who oversaw the construction and development of dignified structures throughout New York City, from apartment houses to country estates of Society families and industry leaders"

The Brother's achievements include diverse projects such as: The Art Deco RCA Victor Building (1931) , The Landmark Tiffany Building on 57th & Fifth. (1940), not to mention the exclusive 'One Sutton Place South cooperative building' designed in collaboration with Delano & Aldrich for the Phipps family (1927)

George S. Chappell, writing about the property for the New Yorker magazine in 1931, said in these beautiful words:

"A truly Georgian Design and a very successful one is that made by Cross & Cross. This might well be in some quiet London Street, so perfectly has the atmosphere of the gentlemen's club house being in our old Manhattan. The interiors of the property have the quiet intimacy and well bred quality predicated by the exterior . The interiors provided all the comforts of a well appointed house, that is, one designed for Captains of Business"

In 2024, the dazzling outlook of 36 East 63rd Street is more evident than ever on this superb tree lined block: The striking beauty of its centered three story bowed facade from its base up in Flemish bond brickwork and limestone base and trimmed center window elevates the elegant design
