Lucy D. Dahlgren House
Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States The former Dahlgren House is located on the north side of East 96th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues in the Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan. This neo-French Classic style town house was designed by the noted architect and interior decorator Ogden Codman, Jr. Built in 1915-16 as a private residence for the wealthy and socially prominent Lucy Drexel Dahlgren, the house was later acquired by Pierre Cartier, the jeweler, for use as his city residence. Historical Background The colonial history of Carnegie Hill dates from 1658, when Pieter Stuyvesant gathered the isolated farms of Northern Manhattan into a village and called it Nieuw Haarlem. In 1666, the new English Governor, Richard Nicols, reaffirmed Harlem's patent, or charter, giving Harlem clear claim to land which, at its southernmost point, reached to present day East 74th Street. The site of the Dahlgren House lay within the Common Lands owned by the Freeholders of Harlem. Unfenced and untilled, this Common Land was partially separated from the rest of the Village of Harlem by hilly terrain and a swamp. It was not divided into lots until 1825 when Charles Clinton surveyed the area for the Freeholders. In 1834, rail access to New York was provided by the New York and Harlem Railroad which ran along Fourth Avenue from Prince Street to 129th Street in Harlem. Although the line included a station in nearby Yorkville, the railroad failed to attract much development to the Carnegie Hill area. While some residential development did occur, it was sparse. This section of Manhattan remained semi-rural in character until the later part of the nineteenth century. Scattered frame houses, two-story brick buildings and a few rows of brownstones erected by developers were interspersed with squatter's shacks. Shanties also lined the edges of Central Park. During the 1880s, the Carnegie Hill area experienced a surge of development similar to that occurring throughout the Upper East Side. The completion of the New York Elevated Railroad along Third Avenue in the late 1870s, which provided convenient rapid transit access to Carnegie Hill, helped stimulate a speculative residential building boom there. From the mid to the late-1880s, small first-class brownstone rowhouses for middle-class residents sprang up on the side streets as well as along Madison, Park, and Lexington Avenues. Surprisingly, the segment of Fifth Avenue that forms the eastern boundary of Central Park experienced only spotty development until the 1890s. Fifth Avenue above 59th Street was regarded by the elite of New York society as the fringe of town; the city's fashionable area was farther south along Fifth Avenue in the vicinity of 34th street and northward into the low Fifties. In the meantime, the hyper-inflated land values of Fifth Avenue frontage above 59th Street discouraged any speculative residential development there. This portion of Fifth Avenue remained largely vacant, awaiting the inevitable uptown migration of wealthy capitalists and society leaders. By the late 1880s, some of the wealthy members of New York society did venture beyond 59th Street where they erected baronial residences. According to one account, "there was, indeed, for a time a hesitancy on the part of wealthier classes to occupy Fifth avenue facing the park, north of 59th street, but...the step northward has been positively taken, and the erection of... residences...and fashionable clubs...has determined the character of the avenue and streets adjacent thereto wherever any doubt existed. The trend was further assured when Caroline Schermerhorn Astor, long the arbiter of New York Society, moved into her Richard Morris Hunt-designed chateau (1893-95) at Fifth Avenue and 65th Street. Opulent town houses and millionaire's mansions, however, were concentrated below 86th Street. The only man of fortune to settle farther to the north was Jacob Ruppert, the brewer, whose house was located up the avenue at 93rd street. Since 1881 he had maintained this residence at what was still very much the edge of the city, where small farms survived between streets that had been cut through a rocky landscape dotted by squatters' shacks and goats. A photograph from 1895 documents the prevalence of shanties and shacks still found along upper Fifth Avenue at this time. Here lived the day laborers who were laying out roads, blasting through rock and helping to construct the mushrooming rows of brownstones that the city's northward expansion produced. In 1898, Andrew Carnegie purchased a site along Fifth Avenue between 90th and 91st Streets and erected what he termed "the most modest, plainest and most roomy house in New York." With Carnegie's purchase of this land, Fifth Avenue's highest elevation at 114 feet above sea level, the area acquired the name "Carnegie Hill." Carnegie's investment ensured that this section of town would e
Luxe Style Entertaining Tips for the Autumn Season
So I'm one of those crazy people that totally transforms their house for every season and holiday. I remove photos on the walls and replace with seasonal ones, I have huge rubbermaid bins in the garage for every holiday and as you know Halloween is one of my favorites. Autumn, really is my favorite time of the year. Ok so, pulling out my Halloween decor and receiving a new Pottery Barn catalog in the mail is what provoked me to share with you just how festive their Halloween and harvest decor is. Luxe Style Design for October Entertaining :: The devil is in the details. 1.}Add Warmth and New Texture Start by remove your everyday candles and exchange with a new autumn inspired color. Just hide away your everyday candles for after the holiday. The subtle change in color will bring a renewed warmth to your rooms that the summer has played out. Shades of reds, plums, wine, or warm toasty shades of gold instantly transform a room. Not only can you add these colors to your current palette you can also add these tones in new curtains, and pillows. Add texture and dimension to your room with new pillows that sport ruffly rich cotton fabrics and or even textured wools to make any room cozy. 2.}Linens & Things Linens are so fun to buy; you can buy new holiday inspired towels, throw blankets, shower curtains, door mats etc for so cheap at great discount places like TJMax, Homegoods, Target, Tuesday Morning the possibilities are endless. Try to find items that are snuggly and soft with woven patterns or textures. And just by switching out your kitchen hand soap for a decorative holiday one and matching it with autumn inspired fingertip towels and or floor mats will get that festive hum goin' on in the kitchen or bath in no time -couple with a coordinating table runner or place mats and your eat-in is pumpkin carving ready! 3.} Nature's Palette :: Create a Organic Centerpiece There is no better and cost effective way to add seasonal splendor to your home then to get a good pair of garden clippers (or kitchen scissors will do) and walk yourself outside armed with a paper bag (for collecting) and get to cutting! Using branches, decorative grasses and shrub clippings are the most organic and pure way to change your home's ambiance from one season to another. Branches make wonderful decorations for your home. Look for interesting shapes with leaves, nuts, or berries still attached they are the most beautiful! Stop by the local farmers market, farm or trading post and purchase mini pumpkins, squash and dried corn ears to create a stress-free centerpiece by setting several lil' pumpkins or gourds on the table. Arrange your collection of autumn items and gather them on any long platter, really any shape will work. Add finishing touches by adding berries, leaves, rocks, nuts or even a few flowers from your yard like dahlias, mums or sunflowers. 4.} Use What You Already Have :: Be Creative I bet if you are reading this you like to entertain...and you might already know that some of the best ideas come right from your own cupboard. Utilize party platters, cake stands, bowls, plates and other such items to use as floral arrangement, candle and or centerpiece presentation platforms. 5.} Balance and Visual Impact :: Get creative and have fun! Use your imagination and pull cues from Mother nature, she always knows what's up. Use personl items, even Halloween candy to add color and whimsy to your holiday decor. Buy a bag of tootsie pops and and suckers and group together in like colors (group like colors with like as it adds more of an impact then if you were to spread them out.) much like you would do in gardening. Home decorating is much the same. Grouping items together add more impact and visual appeal. Also group items together in odd numbers as they look better in a grouping and feel more balanced visually. Autumn entertaining can be really fun and lends to a charming and welcoming feeling into your home.
