Description of 55 East 74th Street

The six-story limestone townhouse at 55 East 74th Street was built in 1898 by architects Buchman & Deisler. When it was a two-unit home, former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt lived on the bottom floors and entertained luminaries of all stripes in her home. In 1999, its new owners converted it to a single-family home with updated elevator, HVAC, plumbing, electricity, and security.
