APC 57. "White Hall" Cottage. Catherine Street. This residence owned by the New York Coogan family experienced a sad fate. The Coogans who owned the polo grounds, home of the New York Giants had a terrible fire at White Hall a few seasons after buying the home. They thought the home was a total loss and did not bother to salvage any of the silver or extensive furnishings that were not damaged. The still standing "White Hall" was broken into over the years and all its valuable items were stolen. Mrs. Coogan remembered how beautiful the home was and refused to have it torn down. Her son finally persuade her to have the home demolished only two years before her death. "White Hall" was designed by Sanford White and he considered it his best Georgian Style home.
