Home of Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand in New York City (from 1941-1964)

A lovely home at 448 Central Park West, overlooking Central Park.  DVH arrived in the USA in 1940 as a destitute refugee after having fled the Nazis who were hunting him.  This was his first real home in the New World, which he maintained until he retired from teaching at Fordham Uni and accepted another position in New Rochelle.  I wish some good Catholic foundation could rent the flat and host DVH study days and cocktail parties here.
