Oliver Gould Jennings House
The Oliver Gould Jennings House is a mansion located at 7 East 72nd Street in the Upper East Side of New York City. It was originally constructed in 1898 for Oliver Gould Jennings in the French Beaux-Arts style. In 1964, it became part of the Lycée Français de New York in the neighboring Henry T. Sloane House.
The mansion was in turn vacated by the school when it was sold and renovated to become a luxurious single-family home again. The purchaser of the building was Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the (now former) Emir of Qatar, who bought the mansion and the neighboring Henry T. Sloane House around 2004.
