The Lambs Club
130 West 44th Street
— New York City Designated Landmark —
The Lambs Club, a private social group that presented plays and satirical theatrical revues, built this clubhouse in 1904-5. The eastern half of this fine Neo-Georgian style building was designed by the prominent architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White, whose senior partners were members. Architect George A. Freeman, Jr., was responsible for adding the western half in a seamless ca. 1915 addition that displays similar brickwork, marble, terra cotta, and Classical ornamentation. Sold in 1975, the former clubhouse has subsequently been used as an off-Broadway theater and church. The building was renovated and converted into a hotel in 2010.
