THIS IS ONE OF THOSE HOUSES you can’t believe modern-day people really get to live in: a grand mansion in Clinton Hill, where the industrial robber barons of the late 19th century had their family homes. This one was built by a founder of Pfizer in 1887, with plasterwork and other architectural detail that (although it is designated by Landmarks as Queen Anne style) is so lavish as to be practically Baroque.

It’s all still there, and has been brought back from years of neglect. To see some three dozen photos and drool, go here.
