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. A limestone fireplace, velvet chairs, pillared candles and modern art on the walls complete the setting in the dining room. The barroom of Crown was inspired by the bar on the Orient Express, sleek and sophisticated complete with gray velvet walls.
