7 West 46th Street New York City - Former Residence of Diamond Jim Brady - Urban Legend


7 West 46th Street NYC - Google Maps


Many, many, years ago I passed this building and there was a plaque next to the front door that “Diamond Jim Brady” had lived here. The main floor shortly thereafter was turned into a Japanese Restaurant and the plaque disappeared somewhere along the way. I think also that the present fa├žade is colored faux-stone designed stucco and not the original brownstone.

It is amazing sometimes the buildings that manage to survive in NYC.
