The elevator services all 6 levels, including the lower level, with doors that open on both sides, and also provides direct access to the garage. Architectural and Social Provenance A triumph of simplicity and classically refined ornament, the understated neo-Federal brick faade with four great bays with Greek fret bands and balustrades, and a delicate fanlight over the entrance, was designed for Mrs. George Whitney in 1920 by the renowned architectural firm of Cross & Cross, who often worked with Rosario Candela. Originally two townhouses in a row of 11 Italianate-style imposing brownstone residences with columnar entrance porticos, built by famed architects, D. & J. Jardine in 1870-1871, Cross & Cross also combined the interiors of the two townhouses. In 1948, Dorothy Hearst Paley, a glamorous figure in New York society at the time, purchased the townhouse and engaged Swiss architect, William Lescaze, a pioneer of modernism in American architecture, to provide interior alterations and remodel the front steps. Known for her beauty and style, Ms. Paley was frequently photographed and written about during her glittering marriages to John Randolph Hearst and William S. Paley. She was immortalized by Henri Matisse in a 1936 charcoal portrait, and remembered for her social, human rights and political activism. Several of the houses on the street were designed by the era's most prominent architects, including the large neo-Georgian house at No. 33, designed in 1901 by architect Grovenor Atterbury, and is one of his most elegant early 20th century designs. Set in the heart of the Upper East Side with Central Park one block away, The Met Breuer around the corner, housing The Metropolitan Museum's collection of modern and contemporary art, the Frick Museum close by, and nearby Upper East Side private schools, all offering a superb and unmatched lifestyle.
