All Aboard


Enter the regal, two-story, 22 x 36-foot library in this 1920 New York home and you may think you just walked into an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. The room was taken, part by part, from the Cunard Line luxury ocean liner RMS Mauritania, sister ship to the Lusitania, and assembled in this former home of a prestigious area lawyer. The library features graceful, polished tiger maple with curved corners, clerestory windows, lead frame doors, marble fireplace, and the original retractable chandelier at center.
