Peter Pennoyer, the chairman of The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, a distinguished architect himself, and the co-author (often with 15CPW architect Robert A.M. Stern) of books on Grosvenor Atterbury, Delano & Aldrich and Warren & Wetmore, has penned an advance endorsement of House of Outrageous Fortune: “Michael Gross captures the phenomenon that is 15 Central Park West, where creative talent, towering ambition and unimaginable wealth instill a magical aura of glamour and romance not seen in a Gotham apartment house since the Gatsby era.”
