Someone Got to Live Here

May 28th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

While I was looking for a picture of the Isador Straus summer estate I came across this picture of the Wheelock Mansion on 661 West 158th Street.  It’s dated November 10, 1937 and it was taken by Berenice Abbott.  That’s Manhattan!  It’s like a beautiful, Jean Cocteau-imagined fantasy but it’s (was) real.

    Ooooh. Love it in a freakish sort of Munster family way.
