Across from the House of Fantasy, lived the great New York painter, George Bellows. From 1910 to 1925, Bellows lived in the townhouse, and worked in a studio in the attic.East 19th Street was a miniature artist enclave in the early 1900s. Aside from Robert Winthrop Chanler, other residents included Ethel Barrymore, Helen Hayes and occasionally F. Scott Fitzgerald. The block was transformed into unique arty facades, complete with eclectic stained glass and tiles largely by architect Frederick Sterner.
