Despite its remote location, the quirky German Renaissancestyle castle, with its intricate façade, peculiar interior design, and gargoyle guardians peering down on Central Park, was an immediate hit, particularly among the citys well-heeled intellectuals and artists.
Over the next century it would become home to an eclectic cast of celebrity residentsincluding Boris Karloff, Lauren Bacall, Leonard Bernstein, singer Roberta Flack (the Dakotas first African-American resident), and John Lennon and Yoko Onowho were charmed by its labyrinthine interior and secret passageways, its mysterious past, and its ghosts. Stephen Birmingham, author of the New York society classic Our Crowd, has written an engrossing history of the first hundred years of one of the most storied residential addresses in Manhattan and the legendary lives lived within its walls.
