The Joseph Pulitzer Residence

The Joseph Pulitzer residence designed by McKim, Mead & White c. 1903 at 11 East 73rd Street in New York City.  Pulitzer, publisher of the New York World, moved to this location after a fire at his residence on East 55th Street.  The building is now a co-op.  Click HERE for more on the Pulitzer residence and HERE to see it on google earth.  Photo from Architecture, 1903.
