Inside the Unsellable Home of NYC's Ubiquitous Dr. Zizmor

New, 25 comments

It looks like the dermatology profession, unlike time, has done good for Dr. Jonathan Zizmor. Although it's languished on the market for 720 days—far shorter than the tenure of Zizmor's brilliant rainbow-wiped ads, which have become a fixture in New York subway cars—it's never too late to feature the home of arguably the city's most famous hyper-local celeb. Zizmor's 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean Revival mansion in Fieldston was built in 1928 by the not-nearly-as-famous Dwight James Baum. Featuring "remarkable architectural detail of a bygone era," the palatial space surrounding a private inner-courtyard has seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths, a loggia, and a sunken living room. While the listing thinks the manse "simply must be seen to be appreciated," first mentions of the $4.3 million property's pedigree should be enough to win over any true New Yorker.
