Stanford White

Down the street, at 22 W. 24th St, is an abandoned townhouse that was rented at the turn of the last century by the architect Stanford White. His best known work is probably Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village. Here was White's lavishly decorated love nest, which included a red velvet swing. White famously asked young women to "come up and see my etchings". White's affairs would eventually lead to his dramatic murder by a jealous husband.
