Day 241

Garner mansion

August 27th, 2012

It's said that Ulysses S. Grant was once interested in making this estate his post-presidency retirement home, but his wife vetoed the move after being attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes during a visit. Years later, in 1903, it became the new Staten Island branch of St. Vincent's Hospital; it's now part of Richmond University Medical Center.
