Built For Frank Winfield Woolworth
Woolworth a young department store clerk ventured out and pioneered five and ten cent stores. His coworker Jennie Creighton at the department store came to tend him when sick who he later married. He was a devoted family man. He built a 1000 store company worth $65,000,000 at the time of his death in 1919. His family paid estate taxes twice within 5 years due to tax laws at the time of his wife's death. One of his three daughter's Edna, married to E. F. Hutton's brother, died young from a suicide, leaving a grandaughter at 7 years old to inherit a large part of his estate. That along with a trust from her father was reportedly squandered and reports of excess caused some rioting among Woolworth employees working at low wages. The company converted to it's most profitable subsidiary "Foot Locker".
Cost 10 Million. Pink and beige marble staircase cost 2 million of that.
Sold To Reynolds, of Reynolds Metal Co, in 1975 Andre von Brunner. Then home to Pell Corporation, then to Martin Carey, (brother of former NY Governor Hugh Carey).
Current Use Privately owned and has been on and off the real estate market for amounts just under $20 million.
Notes: Originally a Gold Coast Mansion on the same spot was built for Dr. Alexander Crombie Humphreys by C.P.H. Gilbert in 1899.. The original Mediterranean villa style house was then purchased by Emmet Queen in 1907. Then purchased by Robert Winfield Woolworth. It was speculated Woolworth wanted a home nearer the sound like the JOSEPH DELAMAR MANSION. R W Woolworth's Estate on Crescent Beach Rd, Glen Cove, NY was burned down in 1916. Then replaced by the newer Winfield Hall. Rumors were that the architectural plans were in the works for some time.
