Although other websites have stated that this is the Yale Club, it is in fact the Down Town Association of the City of New York Club, a private club founded in 1859 in the Financial District. It’s located at 60 Pine Street, just down the street from the Art Deco skyscraper 70 Pine. The building was built in 1887 and is a New York City landmark. It is considered the oldest club in New York City still occupied by its members and originally built for them. Charles Wetmore, who designed Grand Central Terminal, was responsible for an addition.
The members of the Down Town Association have included Franklin D. Roosevelt and its memberships are often from the legal and financial elite. It makes sense that Chuck would meet a partner at Hovarth, one of the premier legal firms to discuss as potential job here at this club.
