In 1970, his office was located at 393 Seventh Ave, New York, New York 10001.[1] Generally an advocate of contemporary architecture, AIA Guide to NYC (1978), conceded that "it is hard to miss [St. Francis de Chantal's Church, Bronx,]. Perhaps that's one of its problems."[4] The small practice, Paul W Reilly & Associates, was listed as on Broad Street, Red Bank, New Jersey.[5][6]
