Hint: Half of This Marble Building Was Lost To Development

New, 11 comments

Welcome back to Cornerspotter, Curbed's game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into New York City and its past!

Built in the early 20th century, this marble mansion is actually two adjoining twin buildings. It was constructed for one of the wealthiest families in the city, but only one member of the immediate family actually occupied one of the homes. By the mid-20th century, this area was seeing more commercial development, and one of the twins was demolished. Today, the other half still remains, and thanks to a renovation, it looks largely the same as it did when the above photo was taken. Where is this building?
