|MR TIFFANY'S ORIGINAL SKETCH|
For the Seventy-second Street Home
Commissioned by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1882. Once the largest private dwelling in New York, Real Estate Record and Builders' Guide called it "the most conspicuous dwelling house in the city." While the structure is due to the designs of McKim, Mead & White the concept was Mr. Tiffany's son Louis Comfort Tiffany. The residence stood at the northwest corner of Madison Avenue(892) and Seventy-second Street(27). It was here that L. C. moved to from the "Bella" penthouse.
