A member's-only club for the kind of folks who wear their elitism like a badge of honor, the Harvard Club occupies two adjacent lots on West 44th street, a peculiar, haphazardly-built structure designed in several stages by the eminent architectural firm McKim Mead, and White. First organized in 1865, the Harvard Club of New York City predates the rival Yale Club (also on 44th street) by just two years and remains a kind of throwback to the social club culture of gilded age New York.
