The Collis P Huntington Residence, 5th Avenue


Here is a postcard of The C. P. Huntington mansion on Fifth Avenue. It was built by George B Post for Huntington and his wife, Arabella. The fortress was one of the largest homes in New York City, second only to it's neighbor, The Cornelius Vanderbilt II mansion. The Huntington's crammed the home with antiques. paintings and tapestries. Arabella had originally wanted a much larger mansion on the plot, but Post refused to build such a large home. Since the mansion was already atrocious, it is hard to imagine what Arabella had had in mind for the size of her mansion.
