Fifth Avenue
Look beneath all the power and all the wealth that represents New York City's Fifth Avenue, and you'll find greed, blood, revenge. In the thriller "Fifth Avenue," each intermingles within a revered society that is unprepared for what's in store for it when one man finally strikes in an effort to destroy another man for murdering his wife thirty-one years ago. Louis Ryan is that man. George Redman, his wife, two daughters and their close friends are his targets. Both men are self-made billionaires who came from nothing to stake their claim to Fifth Avenue. But when Louis Ryan hires an international assassin to literally rip the Redman family apart, a series of events that can't be stopped catapults them all through a fast-paced, hard-edged thriller in which nobody is safe. Secrets are revealed. The Mafia get involved. And George's two daughters, Celina and Leana Redman, come to the forefront. More than anyone, it's they who are caught in the throes of their father's past as Louis Ryan's blind desire to kill them all takes surprising turns in his all-out effort to see them dead.

Goelet Building
Goelet Building
Midtown Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States of America Summary The ten-story Goelet Building at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 49th Street, built in 1930-32, was designed by Victor L. S. Hafner in the Art Deco style but modified to exhibit the supporting skeletal frame devised by the engineering firm of E. H. Faile. The spare horizontality of the lower stories' glazed curtain walls suggest that, stylistically, this building is a transitional monument between the Art Deco and the International Style. The client, Robert Goelet, acting for the Estate of Ogden Goelet, desired a building that would be comparable in architectural merit and prestige to the family mansion it replaced and which would also complement the use -- street level shops and office space above ~ and modern appearance of the buildings of the adjacent Rockefeller Center, then under construction. The building's steel frame - an unusual two-story platform supporting the eight upper stories -- was dictated by the original dual-purpose character of the building. The building is faced with contrasting marbles, verde antique (deep green) marble on the lower two stories and white marble with green marble detailing above, still expressive of its internal structure and function, despite changes at the base of the building. The Client Robert Goelet (1881-1966), who commissioned the Goelet Building, was a member of a family that has owned property in Manhattan since the seventeenth century. The Huguenot Francis Goelet emigrated from Amsterdam to the colony of New York in 1676, bringing with him his son Jacobus. Prominent among their descendants were the brothers Peter Goelet (1800-1879) and Robert Goelet (1809-1879), both of whom accumulated large fortunes based on real estate and banking - both brothers were founders of the present day Chemical Bank. Their two estates were inherited by Robert's sons, Robert (1841-1899) and Ogden Goelet (1846-1897), who, in 1880, commissioned the architect Edward Hale Kendall (1842-1901) to design them handsome residences at 589 and 608 Fifth Avenue respectively. Ogden Goelet married Mary Rita Wilson, and they had two children, Mary Wilson Goelet (1878-1937) and Robert Goelet (1881-1966).5 Upon Ogden Goelet's death, the house at 608 Fifth Avenue and "Ochre Point" at Newport were left to his widow.6 His real-estate holdings were to be administered through an office, the Estate of Ogden Goelet, of which his son Robert Goelet became one of two principal trustees. In 1920 Robert Goelet as a trustee commissioned a two-story commercial art gallery building at 606 Fifth Avenue on the vacant lot immediately south of Mrs. Goelet's house. Designed by John H. Duncan, it was faced with limestone and Tinos green marble. It was leased to the art dealers Henry Reinhardt & Son, a commercial establishment but suitable to a still partially residential neighborhood. Mrs. Ogden Goelet retained the family mansion at 608 Fifth Avenue until her death in 1929. Then aware of the Rockefeller Center project being developed by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., on the same block and blocks north, Robert Goelet, acting as a trustee of the Estate of Ogden Goelet, determined to replace his mother's mansion with a commercial structure. On November 13, 1929, the first of four sales of the contents of the house was held.8 The following March the house was razed along with the Reinhardt art gallery next door. In December 1930, plans for a new ten-story building were announced. Fifth Avenue In 1852 the advent of the horse car pushed the city's northern limit to 59th Street. Originally Fifth Avenue was developed as an exclusive residential thoroughfare, but in the late 1870s the dwellings from 23rd to 42nd Streets were rapidly being displaced by taller commercial structures. By 1935, five years after the Ogden Goelet house was razed, there were only five residences left on Fifth below 59th Street. The important retail shops had relocated from the Union Square area. By 1918 Tiffany's had moved to its new palazzo designed by McKim, Mead & White, at Fifth and 37th. Stern's had moved up from 23rd to 42nd, W. & J. Sloane to 46th, and Davis Collamore & Co. to 48th. Among the art dealers were Ehrich at No. 707, Duveen Brothers at No. 720 and Kleinberger at No. 725 Fifth Avenue. Fioret, Inc. (Parfums de Distinction) at No. 677, advertised its location "on the site of the old Cornelius Vanderbilt mansion." While many of the booksellers and publishers remained around 23rd Street, Charles Scribner's Sons moved into its new location at No. 597 (a designated New York City Landmark), designed by Ernest Flagg, in 1913. However, in the wake of the attendant florists, jewellers and silversmiths came the inevitable office buildings and hotels, and after World War I these were being constructed on both sides of Fifth up to 59th Street. When in 1929 Robert Goelet had the opportunity to build, he was confronted wit

***PLANET KINDLE ON CHRISTOPHER SMITH***
