Oliver Payne House

852 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan, New York

Built in 1889, for the lifelong bachelor Colonel Oliver Hazard Payne (1839-1917) who lived in the 25-foot wide turret seen here on the left of what otherwise appears to be one house. The rest of the double-house was occupied by Henry Osborne Havemeyer and was given the address No. 1 East 66th Street. The building was designed by Charles C. Haight and it bears a noticeable similarity to Haight's 1887 design for the former New York Cancer Hospital which still stands at 455 Central Park West.
