“Mr. Gross chronicles all manner of bad behavior taking place within the residences; life after folly-filled life flashes forward like Park Avenue canopies viewed from a speeding town car.”
“Peeking Behind the Gilded Walls of 740 Park Avenue,” New York Times, October 9, 2005

“740 Park isn’t just a laundry list of awe-inspiring floor plans and eye-popping extras. The book offers a narrative look at the 20th-century American aristocracy through one legendary residence. ‘Blood, brains, wealth and power drive the story of 740,’ Mr. Gross writes. ‘But so do excess, greed, scandal and extravagant folly.’ Honestly, what more could you ask for?”
