William A. Clark House on Fifth Avenue

The William A. Clark House was a mansion located at 952 Fifth Avenue on the northeast corner of its intersection with East 77th Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

William A. Clark, a wealthy entrepreneur and politician from Montana, commissioned the New York firm of Lord and Hewlett to build the house in 1897. Completed in 1907 after numerous legal disputes,[1] it was torn down shortly after Clark's death in 1925 and replaced with the present apartment building at 960 Fifth Avenue.
