Based on Italian Renaissance, this Mansion shares many characteristics with Italian palazzi, such as the “L-shaped” floor plan, the courtyard, the window enframements, and the heavy stone cornice that crowns the building. The House was designated a New York City Landmark in 1974, and is considered by many architectural historians to be one of the most distinguished examples of early 20th century residential architecture in New York City.
