Cornerspotted: The Tiffany Mansion at 72nd Street and Madison Avenue

New, 2 comments

The 57-room mansion was designed by Stanford White

It didn't take long for commenters to guess the location of this week's Cornerspotter photo: the enormous 57-room mansion is, as ShowUsYourSoffits pointed out, the Charles L. Tiffany mansion on the corner of Madison Avenue and East 72nd Street. The home was planned by the elder Tiffany, but ultimately executed by his son, Louis, with the help of starchitect Stanford White. It was completed in 1885, but demolished a little more than half a century later, in 1936.

Funnily enough, the site it once stood on is now home to an address that's nearly as distinguished as Tiffany's once was: Rosario Candela designed the current building, 19 East 72nd Street, which is a pricey co-op.
