Though over 100 years have passed since that day, one can still imagine the music flowing through the air on the 22nd of May in 1925 for a special reception at 146 East End Avenue, an artistic townhome with a large, semi-circular, brick arched entrance with deep reveal. The clear view of the Carl Schurz Park and the East River was only enhanced by the entrancing violin music of Svendsen’s “Romance” played by Lady Odin-Pearse and the rich sound of Fritz Kreisler’s “Caprice Viennois” with Mina Gordan accompanying on the piano.
The townhouse, now on the market has the spirit of the last Duke de Richelieu in its history. See the listing here and contact Leighton Candler at Corcoran for more information if you are interested in purchasing.
