William Randolph Hearst’s Former Home

New York City is rich with history. Some of it was created at the time of William Randolph Hearst, who revolutionized journalism. The historical Californian figure took over a newspaper that was on the verge of collapsing completely and turned it around. The man competed against 16 other papers! Furthermore, Hearst went on to create a magazine, which became successful as well. Hearst eventually found his way to New York, where he became a member of the House. Yep, this guy was a hot-shot. He actually built a castle in California, and lived large by the Hudson River. You can too, for $38 million!

Hearst’s former NY residency takes up 4 floors of a twelve-story building on Riverside Dr. The home has a total of 7 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms and is a part of 0.23 acres. Although built in 1900, the home preserves high ceilings, rejuvenated flooring (sleek and glossy hardwood), and opens up to awe-inspiring city and Hudson River views via a wrap-around deck. Basically, if you don’t wear a monocle, then don’t bother with this one. Just kidding, but seriously…………you’ll need deep pockets.
