The George Crocker Residence
Originally built for Henry Knickerbocker by D. & J. Jardine c. 1873 at Fifth Avenue and East 64th Street in New York City, the residence was entirely remodeled by Brite & Bacon for George and Emma Crocker c. 1899. Crocker was vice-president of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company and president of the Oriental and Occidental Steamship Company among others as well as special partner in the brokerage firm of Price, McCormick & Co. The residence was demolished c. 1930 and replaced with 834 Fifth Avenue, a Rosario Candela designed apartment house.
