New York City Apartment House Names In 1904 (G-N)
We continue our list of New York City apartment building names and their addresses in 1904 with part two, building names from G to N.
Researching a building at random, I came across this interesting aside. The fully occupied Marlborough Arms, a seven story apartment building at 57 West 10th Street was offered for sale at auction in 1895.
The sale price was $89,407.
The building stands today, though the name Marlborough Arms is nowhere to be seen. The current managing agent lists the building as being built in 1915, but they are wrong. According to real estate records, the same 19th century Marlborough Arms apartment building was sold in 1919 to A.A. Hageman.
This list is only comprised of apartment buildings in Manhattan and the Bronx.
