Founded in 1844, the New York Yacht Club commissioned its New York City clubhouse from the firm of Warren and Wetmore in 1899. J. Pierpont Morgan was the Commodore at the time and donated the two-lot site on West 44th Street where the present clubhouse was built.

The extravagant beaux-arts masterpiece was designed by Whitney Warren and completed in 1901. The façade mimics the sterns of Dutch galleons with huge windows that spill stone waves over the ledges. Inside, the theme continues in the lower level dining room with its heavy oak timbers and cast iron bolts replicating the space below deck on a sailing vessel.

A visitor in 1905 remarked, "Except for the absence of motion, one might fancy oneself at sea." Join Royal Oak and New York Yacht Club's Curator of Collections Alice Dickinson as we explore the Club's history, architecture, fine arts and library collections
