HISTORY: Built In 1885-1886, 12 East 80th Street Is The Only Remaining Townhome Of The Five Brownstones Designed By Charles Graham & Sons For The Real Estate Family B.A. And G.N. Williams. In 1917, Thomas Newbold Purchased The Residence For His Daughter, Julia Appleton Newbold Cross, And Her Husband, William Redmond Cross. William Redmond Cross Was An Investment Banker, President Of The New York Zoological Society, And A Chairman Of The Council Of The American Geographical Society; Mrs. Cross Was President Of The Horticultural Society Of New York. Desiring A More Fashionable House Than The Original Brownstone Residence, The Couple Commissioned Williams Notable Architect Brothers, John W. Cross And Eliot Cross, To Extensively Alter The Homes Appearance. The Original Brownstone Designs Were Substituted With A Red Brick Facade And Enchanting Neo-Federal Style Features, Including Flemish Bond Brickwork, Characteristic Arches, And Cornices. The Firm Of Cross & Cross Designed Many Important New York City Buildings, Including The Tiffany & Co. Building At Fifth Avenue & 57th Street, The Barclay Hotel, The City Bank Farmers Trust Building, And The Church And Rectory Of Notre Dame. Eliot Cross Was Also Part Of The Group Of Builders Who Began The Development Of Sutton Place. This Is A Co-Exclusive With Brown Harris Stevens.
