Nicholas C. and Agnes Benziger House
West Harlem / Hamilton Heights / Sugar Hill
A reminder of uptown's elite past, this is one of Manhattan's last free standing mansions, constructed in 1890 by a wealthy publisher, and has since served as a hospital, nursery, and housing for the homeless. Its crowning glory is a steep clay tile roof and gabled dormers, recently restored. A lovely garden of flowers, grapevines and chestnut trees surround the house.
View from street only. This site is currently occupied by a non-profit housing program.
