History:



Nestled snugly behind the Forbes Building at 5th Avenue and West 12th Street is No. 11 West 12th Street. Built in 1847 as wealthy New Yorkers began constructing wide brownstone mansions along lower 5th Avenue above Washington Square.



In the early 1960s, after the Macmillan building became the Forbes building, Malcolm S. Forbes bought the house from the Macmillan family. Throughout both the Macmillan and Forbes periods it was the scene of dazzling entertainment, attended by names like David Niven, Elizabeth Taylor, Margaret Thatcher, the Reagans and Richard Nixon. A hidden treasure, the house at No. 11 West 12th Street with its rich history has been meticulously renovated and remastered.
