Wave Hill House, Riverdale, Bronx, New York, New York

This Greek Revival house was built in 1843 by William Lewis Morris.  Purchased two decades later by Appleton, it was turned into a Victorian villa.  It was leased to Teddy Roosevelt and later Mark Twain (1901-1903).    A Gothic style weing was added in 1927, Armor Hall.  Arturo Toscanini lived in the house (1943-1945), which ultimately was deeded to NYC in 1960.
