The city Landmarks Preservation Commission is trying to figure out if legendary Yankee Babe Ruth lived at a house in the upscale St. Albans neighborhood of Addisleigh Park in Queens. The three-story brick home at 114-07 175th Street is believed to have been rented by a retired Ruth, who wanted to be near his favorite golf course, lived in the summers in the early 1940s. If true, the home could receive landmark protection.
