The Ansonia, NYC

The Ansonia, NYC

"The Ansonia is a building on the Upper West Side of New York City, located at 2109 Broadway, between 73rd and 74th Streets. It was originally built as a hotel by William Earle Dodge Stokes (1852–1926), the Phelps-Dodge copper heir and share holder in the Ansonia Clock Company, and it was named for his grandfather, the industrialist, Anson Greene Phelps. In 1899, Stokes commissioned architect Paul E. Duboy (1857–1907) to build the grandest hotel in Manhattan.
Stokes would list himself as "architect-in-chief" for the project and hired Duboy, a sculptor who designed and made the ornamental sculptures on the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, to draw up the plans. A contractor sued Stokes in 1907, but he would defend himself, explaining that Duboy was in an insane asylum in Paris and should not have been making commitments in Stokes's name concerning the hotel.
In what might be the earliest harbinger of the current developments in urban farming, Stokes established a small farm on the roof of the hotel.
Stokes had a Utopian vision for the Ansonia—that it could be self-sufficient, or at least contribute to its own support—which led to perhaps the strangest New York apartment amenity ever. “The farm on the roof,” Weddie Stokes wrote years later, “included about 500 chickens, many ducks, about six goats and a small bear.” Every day, a bellhop delivered free fresh eggs to all the tenants, and any surplus was sold cheaply to the public in the basement arcade. Not much about this feature charmed the city fathers, however, and in 1907, the Department of Health shut down the farm in the sky. Erected between 1899 and 1904, it was the first air-conditioned hotel in New York. The building has an eighteen-story steel-frame structure. The exterior is decorated in the Beaux-Art style with a Parisian style mansard roof. Striking architectural features are the round corner-towers or turrets. Unusual for a Manhattan building, the Ansonia features an open stairwell that sweeps up to a huge domed skylight. The interior corridors may be the widest in the city. For several years Stokes kept farm animals on the building's roof next to his personal apartment. Another unusual feature of the building is its cattle elevator, which enabled dairy cows to be stabled on the roof.The Ansonia has had many celebrated residents, including: the baseball player, Babe Ruth; the writer, Theodore Dreiser; the conductor, Arturo Toscanini; the composer, Igor Stravinksy; and the Italian tenor, Enrico Caruso, who chose the hotel to live in because of its thick walls.amous former residents include opera stars Teresa Stratas, Eleanor Steber, Geraldine Farrar, Feodor Chaliapin, Ezio Pinza, Lily Pons, and Lauritz Melchior (who, some maintained, "practiced archery in the 110-foot corridors"); musicians Arturo Toscanini, Igor Stravinksy, Mischa Elman, and Yehudi Menuhin; impresarios Florenz Ziegfeld and Sol Hurok; authors Theodore Dreiser, Cornell Woolrich, and Elmer Rice; athletes Jack Dempsey and Babe Ruth; mobster Arnold Rothstein; the film actors, Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, and Eric McCormack, and soap opera actress and writer, Clarice Blackburn".

Room from the Hôtel de Varengeville, Paris

Room from the Hôtel de Varengeville, Paris

The Hotel de Varengeville, at 217, boulevard Saint-Germain, was built in 1704 by the architect Jacques Gabriel (1667-1742) for Charlotte-Angelique Courtin, the widowed comtesse de Varengeville. She left it to her daughter, who sold it in 1736 to Marie-Marguerite d'Allegre, comtesse de Ruppelmonde (d. 1752). The comtesse had the room decorated in something like its present Louis Quinze style. The most distinctive feature of the room is the elaborate gilded boiserie or woodwork, attributed to Nicolas Pineau (1684-1754). The paneling is vigorously carved with C-scrolls, S-scrolls, fantastic stork-like birds, palmettes, foliage sprays, and even bats' wings. The Rococo style offers early evidence of the influence of Asian art. Chinoiserie is evident in the gilded ornamentation of the scarlet and gold japanned writing table. This table was made for Louis XV in 1759 by the royal cabinetmaker Gilles Joubert. Conventional aristocratic taste in boiserie form is suggested by the allegories of the seasons and representations of Music, Poetry, Gardening, Hunting, and Commerce.
