Hint: This Freestanding Mansion Was Faced With Demolition

New, 2 comments

Welcome 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!

Captured here in 1905, this old manse once belonged to a man whose massive fortune was developed through the hardware industry. The house later became home to another American millionaire (by way of gift). The structure has since housed a pious organization and faced demolition. Where is this building, and what does it serve as today?
