The history of the Marymount School of New York can be traced back to 1926 when it was first established at 1028 5th Avenue, in the former Florence Vanderbilt estate. Over the years, the two adjacent buildings at 1026 and 1027 5th Avenue, directly across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, were also acquired by the school. The three magnificent Beaux-Arts buildings of the school were built in 1901 and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Marymount School of New York continues to be one of the most sought after and prestigious private catholic girls' school in the city. Additional school facilities can be found at the 82th Street and 97th Street campuses.
