John Fitzgerald Kennedy once lived at the McKim, Mead, and White apartment building at 277 Park Avenue in 1957. Both JFK and his brother Bobby Kennedy used two of the floors in the building as 1960 Presidential Campaign offices. In these rooms, the Kennedy brothers and team were able to craft a plan to strategically squeak past Richard Nixon, the incumbent Vice President under Eisenhower. The Park Avenue Election Headquarters also consisted of their father Joseph Kennedy and unofficial financier of the campaign, who lived in a suite at the Waldorf-Astoria.
