I found this photo on a forum of New York City photos (here
) and I have been all over Google and Bing and tineye looking for more information on why there is a big house in the middle of midtown Manhattan.
I figured I would give MetaFilter a try as the MetaFilter community has a good research track record in my book.
I saw a story on Gothamist
last year that the photo reminded me of, but it was about something that happened on 5th ave over a decade later.
