Facing Central Park, this building is heavily influenced by the Italian Renaissance. This historic manor is the work of architects Alexander Walter and Léon Gillette, five-story residence in 1926 . Grandiose style inspired by the early 20th century Decorative Arts. Large spiral staircase composed of a trompe-l’oeil marble leads the guests all the way to the second floor, the piano nobile. The staircase leads to the Salon Cheminée featuring a polychrome marble floor, smooth-shafted columns in trompe l’oeil veined marble and pilasters topped with Corinthian-style capital. The Salon Cheminée opens to the left onto the Salon Chapelle, with magnificent arched ceiling and parquet à la française. On the other side, the Salon Rose is lit by three wide French windows with round arches offering a stunning view of Central Park. The natural lighting is amplified by a splendid Louis XV bronze and crystal Baccarat chandelier with fifty-six lights. A remarkable polychrome-coffered wooden ceiling covers the entire room, representing various ancient Greco-Roman mythological figures such as nymphs, goddesses and centaurs. The Salon Rose contains some of the most prestigious artwork, including a sumptuous Gobelins tapestry from the 18th century.
Areas of use to be determined in advance, expensive, dress code, etc. This space is open to the public from 9am to 1am (usually not too many people and this has never been a problem for shoots before)
The white leather couch in the Salon Cheminée is slightly worn, and the pink couch in the Salon Chapel is also worn a bit. The TV can be moved to the side, but is very heavy. There is a service freight elevator, and generators might be required.
