215 East 68th Street in 1959

A mystery 1959 photo of a lonely Upper East Side brownstone, surrounded by rubble on all sides, is now being solved.

The 215 East 68th Street home, located between Second and Third avenues, was once home to poet and writer Stephen Vincent Benet, according to a Museum of the City of New York illustration.

Director Vincente Minnelli’s 1960 film “Bells Are Ringing” also depicted the lonely home, according to Gothamist, as the property was used for some establishing shots of New York. You can see the home’s cameo in the video below. [Gothamist] – Julie Strickland
