"A building's details, materials and social spaces should reflect their time, but they should also transcend it."
-Robert A.M. Stern

This townhouse is 25 feet wide and 56 feet deep with a 40-foot south garden facing another garden. Stepping into the parlor floor takes your breath away. It is a one of a kind townhouse to have light on three sides - south, north and west - with a total of seven windows! The massive, floor to ceiling windows measure an astounding 9'10" -- with 12'10" ceilings on the parlor floor and 14'7" ceiling heights on the top floor - allowing light to pour into every room on every floor and creating an incomparable feeling of soaring space.

Superior design definitely has a timeless attraction. Over the years, iconic films such as Mike Nichols' 1988 "WORKING GIRL" and Robert Redford's 1994 "QUIZ SHOW" are just two of the films that have selected this astounding townhouse setting to represent the residence of a leading character to radiate charisma and success.

This townhouse of four levels plus basement contains 5,834 approximate total square feet above grade plus another 1,515 in the basement, with a deep garden of approximately 1,130 square feet. There may be the possibility to add an additional 3,000 square feet for a total of approximately 8,600 square feet.

Currently arranged as a single-family residence in need of total renovation, the new buyer can take advantage of the superb bones this house offers, but most of all, of its rare and irreplaceable light. The sheer volume and scale of the rooms expands the feeling of interior space and brings the light into the residence like no other house available on the market. This is a rare opportunity may not come again.

The trustees of Trinity Church created 66 Morton Street in 1852, five years after creating the third Trinity Church, a national landmark deemed "the first and finest example of Gothic Revival architecture in New York." That concept of scale and light pervades this townhouse, drawing in its new buyer who will restore it into a stunning home for the ages.
