This enormous castle-like mansion—it had 57 rooms!—was designed by a prominent New York City architect for a rather well-to-do family. But alas, it wasn't long for this world: It stood on this spot for a little more than 50 years before being torn down. Now, a different sort of place catering to a well-off audience stands in its spot. Can you guess the location?
