About the Office

Dr. Pastorek’s office is located in Carnegie Hill Historic Distric on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, at 1127 Park Avenue, between 90th and 91st Street. The office is two blocks east of the Guggenheim Museum and the Engineers’ Gate entrance to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park.

In his office, you’ll find the quiet, calm atmosphere and elegant setting that reflects Dr. Pastorek’s practice philosophy. He designed the interior to recreate the 1920’s feeling of the building’s origin. The Art Deco architectural elements, timepieces, and light fixtures are remembrances of a historically fashionable New York period. As a focal point at the front desk, Dr. Pastorek incorporated two large carved stone over-door friezes preserved from the demolition of a historic London Deco department store.

Much of Dr. Pastorek’s photographic art grace the office walls. These outsized peony detail macro photographs, which have been compared to O’Keefe paintings, have been published by Garden Design Magazine and appear both in the pages and on the cover of the publication. When conceptualizing the office, Dr. Pastorek tilted the balance away from a clinically stark office appearance toward the look of a home and an oasis in contrast to the frenetic city outside.
