Alva Vanderbilt hired the architect Richard Morris Hunt to design her Châteauesque ‘petit chateau’ which became one in the long line of mansions along Fifth Avenue called Vanderbilt Row by the press.
The mansion was completed in 1883, and on March 26 she threw a huge costume ball to celebrate.
Petit Chateau, 660 Fiffth Avenue
