The Dwight Mansion

I ventured into Harlem for the first time since the mid-1970s to see the Dwight Mansion, an amazingly grand, late nineteenth-century mansion, which is in the process of restoration.   Sold in 1925 by the Dwight family who had made a fortune from baking soda, it was bought recently with bullet holes in the windows.

This is the front door:
