Rand Araskog, longtime president of the board of directors of the 740 Park cooperative, has died at age 89, reports the New York Times. The former chief executive of ITT, he owned a sixth floor duplex, once the home of “Black Jack” and Janet Bouvier, and the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and sister Lee Radziwill, in the building’s sprawling A-line from 1980 until 2005, though who paid for it was a controversial question. A co-op board member is quoted in 740 Park, the building’s biography, ascribing the purchase to ITT, but a note in the conglomerate’s 1980 proxy statement said it was paying the interest on a loan that let him buy and renovate it, as well as a portion of his hefty monthly maintenance fees. None of that is typical in old-money co-op buildings. Perhaps as a result, some of his old-money neighbors at 740 were skeptical of Araskog, feeling he brought down the building’s “old-shoeish,” old-money tone. Araskog eventually sold the apartment to a hedge fund executive and moved to Palm Beach
