Crown's design incorporates elements of the 1930s French Art Deco. Hints of glamour are found throughout the mansion which is steps away from The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Crown, at 24 East 81st St., features a marble staircase, soaring white molded ceilings and wood paneled walls.
