333 Park Avenue South is a stunning High Victorian Gothic building designed by J.C. Markham in 1875. From 1881 to 1905, the brick structure housed Tiffany Glassworks' offices as well as the factory where Louis Comfort Tiffany designed his signature Favrile glass. Over the last century, 333 Park Avenue has been home to dozens of artists, musicians, art dealers and designers. Faye Dunaway and photographer/director Jerry Schatzberg once resided here: He shot famed photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Natalie Wood and Bob Dylan in his first-floor studio, which was also the site of the notorious Mod Ball party that welcomed The Rolling Stones during their first visit to the States. Tom Wolfe immortalized the soiree in the book, "The Kandy Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby."
