If it doesn't, then now's your chance to see one for yourself, inside one of New York City's best preserved Gilded Age mansions. Join New York Adventure Club ( https://www.nyadventureclub.com/ ) for an exclusive tour through the former Edith Fabbri House, now known as the House of the Redeemer ( https://houseoftheredeemer.org/ ), which served as the town residence of Edith Shepard Fabbri, a great-granddaughter of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. Led by a House of the Redeemer staff member, our unique experience will include: • An overview of the 1916 Gilded Age mansion designed by American architect Grosvenor Atterbury, noted for the 1908 restoration of New York’s City Hall
• A visit to the mansion's historic rooms, including the dining room, chapel, kitchen, parlor, and grand library
• Stories around Edith Shepard Fabbri and her husband Ernesto Fabbri, and why the house, artwork, and furnishings were all donated in 1949 to the Episcopal Church of New York
• A closer examination of the immaculate Grand Library, which originated from a 1600s ducal palace in Urbino, Italy, and how it was transported in two ships through U-boat infested waters during World War I
• A look at the original furniture, art, and decor in the House of the Redeemer, which has been perfectly preserved Click here to see pictures from one of our last visits to House of the Redeemer!
