Celebrated playwright George S. Kaufman lived at 158 East 63rd Street in the 1920s, when he was part of the Algonquin Round Table circle of New York artists. As such, a young Moss Hart visited him at his Upper East Side home and later described seeing the home for the first time as an “illuminating and expensive moment” in his autobiography “Act One.” The townhouse is now on the market again for $7.5 million, and its show-stopping features–a deep garden, European-style architecture, and a handsome library–are all still intact.
