The George Blumenthal Residence
George Blumenthal residence designed by Trowbridge & Livingston c. 1916 at 50 East 70th Street in New York City. Blumenthal was a financier and president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Blumenthal willed the house to the museum which used it briefly before selling it (which Blumenthal had specified). The residence was demolished in the late 1940s.
