Charles T. Cook residence, Long Branch, NJ: McKim, Mead & White, architects, 1885
In the 1880s, social life around Long Branch, NJ, shifted from hotels to newly-built private homes on Ocean Avenue. Cook, president of Tiffany and Co., had this residence finished in 1885 at a cost of $33,000. Cook and Tiffany were the best of friends, so he asked the architects to design a house in which the two families could comfortably fit in the summers. It still stands at 20 Lincoln Avenue, but the shingles have been slapped with stucco, a tower and the top of the other removed, and the double porch has been replaced by a one-story Mediterranean-style monstrosity.
