The Metropolitan Club is one of the most elite private social clubs in New York City. It was formed in 1891, by J.P. Morgan who served as its first president. Other original members included William K. Vanderbilt and James Roosevelt. Its 1912 clubhouse, designed by Stanford White, stands at 1-11 East 60th Street, on the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue. The land on which the Clubhouse stands - 100 feet fronting on Fifth Avenue and 200 feet on 60th Street - was acquired from the Duchess of Marlborough who signed the purchase agreement in the United States Consulate in London. Cornelius Vanderbilt, signed for the club.
