Two Homes With Different Fates
The Louis Comfort Tiffany Mansion (above) circa 1886 at the corner of 72nd Street and Madison Avenue designed by McKim, Mead & White.
The Joseph Pulitzer Mansion (below) 1903 at 7 East 73rd Street (just off of Fifth Avenue) designed by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White.
Pulitzer lived in the house until he died in 1911. The building was vacant for many years and was sold by Pulitzer’s heirs and a large apartment building was to be built on the site but never was. The building was instead divided up into apartments and is now a co-op.
In 1933 Louis Tiffany died and the mansion was replaced in 1936 with an apartment building.
