Demolished in the 1950s, this was an architecturally notable dwelling designed in an early phase of the Romanesque Revival style in New York. Built in 1851, it was designed by James Renwick, Jr., and became his parents’ home. In the early years of the 20th century—from November 1904 to June 1908—it was the city residence of the nation’s beloved novelist and short-story writer Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), and thus became known as the Mark Twain House.
