The double mansions of William H. Vanderbilt and family between 51st and 52nd Streets on the west side of Fifth Avenue, completed in 1881. On the next block is the limestone mansion of William K. and Alva Vanderbilt. The brownstones beyond were soon replaced with three more Vanderbilt houses. (New York Social Diary)

Probably my most favorite house that ever existed in New York, then or since.  660 Fifth Avenue, the home of William K. and Alva Vanderbilt.

Once the home of Frederick Vanderbilt, (It now houses the Versace store). The only Vanderbilt house on Fifth Avenue between 51st and 58th Streets that is still standing.  All the others have been demolished.
