The Cartier Mansion in New York is shining once again after reopening this past September after two and a half years of extensive renovations. The building, which dates back to 1905, was originally a six-story mansion home to the Plant family, and is situated on 52nd Street and 5th Avenue. As the area became the commercial corridor we know it as today, the Plants moved uptown and sold the house to Cartier in 1917. The Gary Cooper Room, filled with watches, is encased in real leather wallpaper.
