Located at 1 West 54th street, the University Club of New York is one of the most prestigious and exclusive social clubs in the city. Founded in 1865 by graduates of Harvard, Yale, and Columbia, the club elected not to be affiliated with these institutions and instead formed an independent charter. The original members who initiated the idea for the club were even more exclusive and can be traced to a small group of friends who all graduated from Yale around 1861, and for years Yalies dominated the club’s roster.

Sound like it's on the same level as the Illuminati? It almost is.
