otsoNY Comments: The mansion was only used for exterior shots.

When the building opened in 1930 it had apartments ranging from three to nine rooms, the largest of which had four bedrooms. The apartment living rooms featured a dropped living room, developed by the Earle brothers, which set the interior apart from most others constructed around the same period. An original rental brochure shows the dropped living room nearly entirely open to the entrance gallery; traditionally the gallery was held as a different room. The six apartments on the top five floors of the building are considered the most desirable. Two apartments in particular, 19 and 20F, are the most highly sought after. Together the two units form a 4,500-square-foot (420 m2) penthouse, sporting eleven-foot ceilings, two functioning fireplaces and a 1,000-square-foot (93 m2) terrace.

The 13,095-square-foot, 105-year-old mansion at 5 East 78th Street is currently worth a staggering $15 million. The fabled gilded age of New York is perfectly exemplified by this Beaux-Arts mansion. Originally built for the socially important Mr. and Mrs. Reginald G. Barclay in 1902-04, the architect was C.P.H. Gilbert who was renowned for designing fashionable Beaux-Arts townhouses. He was known for his historic architectural facades of which this property is a classic example. Other notable works of C.P.H. Gilbert include the neighbouring Fletcher mansion at 79th and Fifth Avenue, as well as the Otto Khan mansion at 1 East 91st Street, and the Warburg mansion at 92nd and Fifth. The building comprises approximately 13,000 square feet arranged over six stories, plus a full basement. Throughout the building there are high ceilings and grand scale rooms with nine fireplaces. The accommodations offer great flexibility with potential for 7 bedrooms, superb entertaining space, extensive domestic quarters and a roof terrace.
