Default To macjake: Mansions

Hello Craig,

Yes, this townhouse with the red awnings was a mansion owned by one family. It's actually small compared to some of the other former mansions. Ha ha! Below 59th Street the old mansions were demolished. They are now the big retail flagship stores and highrises along Fifth Avenue. Some of them do still exist on the Upper East Side, though.

All the floors of this townhouse are currently used as Cartier showrooms. Next time you're in NYC you can stop in and buy something for Joanne.

Cheers!
Brenda
