Property in Upper East Side

The William Starr Miller House is a mansion at 1048 Fifth Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City. Prior to William Starr Miller, this site was the home to David Mayer, a founder of the David Mayer Brewing Company. It was originally constructed for the industrialist William Starr Miller. Miller hired the renowned New York-based, Beaux-Arts architectural firm Carrere and Hastings to design a six-story Louis XIII style townhouse for himself and his family, to be located in Manhattan at 1048 Fifth Avenue (on the southeast corner at East 86th Street). The work was completed in 1914.

William Starr Miller's daughter, Edith Starr Miller married the widowed Lord Queenborough in July 1921, in the music room. Miller died at the house in 1935 and his widow continued to live there until her death in 1944.

After Mrs. Miller's death, the townhouse was occupied by Grace Vanderbilt, wife of Cornelius Vanderbilt III, and then by the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.

Purchased in 1994 by art dealer and museum exhibition organizer Serge Sabarsky, and cosmetics billionaire Ronald S. Lauder, the building was fully renovated by German architect Annabelle Selldorf and restored to its original state. It contains the Neue Galerie, which opened on November 16, 2001.
