Mystery House

New York Public Library - Digital Gallery. (click on photo to enlarge).

This house looked familiar, but I have to confess that I had to put some concentrated brain power to work to figure out where I had seen it. . It's still around, so where is it? No cheating if you know already.


  1. is it on greenough ave?

  2. Yes it is - at the corner of Storey place. It's painted white now.

  3. Looks like the house on the corner of Adelaide and Spring Park

  4. The house on Spring Park ave. you're referring to is the Kinraide house - read the story here:

  5. You refer to the Storey place. I am writing a piece of fiction about a mansion we lived in (quasi hippies) in 1970 that the Storeys supposedly lived in -- Victorian, at 226 Perkins I believe. There was also the castle on the property, as well as a place with white columns. They then were turned into condos.

    This house is not the same house where we lived. Can you clarify the Storey family piece?
