387 St. Paul’s Avenue

October 17th, 2014

This house, "the undisputed . . . star among nearly a hundred handsome Victorian dwellings in the Stapleton area", was given by "a German-born beer baron named George Bechtel, who was said to be the richest man on Staten Island," to his daughter as a wedding present in 1888. On screen, it has served as the home of Chalky White in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire. You can see a slew of photos of this gorgeous house and its ornate interior, which features a surprising number of stained-glass windows, in this audio slide show.
