NYC’s Version of the Hearst Castle Can Be Yours for $38 Million

The latest edition of Inside This Week’s Private Properties with Wall Street Journal real estate reporter Candace Taylor is chock-full of good stuff. Starting with the idea that William Randolph Hearst once had a need for a high-ceiling 100-foot long room to house his collection of suits of armor.
