Tucker Anderson was in the market for an apartment in Manhattan.
The place at 400 W. East End Avenue looked nice. Old, for sure. But it had a regal quality to it.
The asking price in 1995 topped seven figures, but Anderson was interested.
He became intrigued when he found out a little more about the history of the place.
The whole story brings up the idea of when a house becomes a collectible.
The New York Times has the interesting story of the address once occupied by a member of baseball royalty.
