Villa Lewaro

in the NYDailyNews

"Villa Lewaro, the sprawling estate of Madam C.J. Walker in Irvington, N.Y., may soon be on the market. In the era of Prohibition, the grandiose Italianate-style villa served as a gathering place for notable leaders of the Harlem Renaissance. Now, preservationists are looking to Harlem’s contemporary cultural vanguard to help ensure its long-term well being."
