I'll bet if the reno had taken place a decade from now it would have been as a single family home and we would be calling it "the Mansion" with no irony.

When I went to school in Pittsburgh 30 odd years ago there was a run down neighborhood of former mansions called Shadyside that were mostly rooming houses for students. Now it's opulent single families again and one of the most desirable parts of town. The mansions of McGinley Sq may have their day again yet!

I was pulling for it to be called The Embalment, but I guess that wouldn't have the same marketing power as The Mansion.

Judging from the real estate projects in Jersey City over the last decade, there's clearly a market for stunning mediocrity.

Yes, I've noticed the names on the west side. Are any of them "The Building"?

I believe lack of creativity is or was considered more chic. Ever notice that the older buildings on Park, Madison and Fifth Avenues in Manhattan only have number addresses, but those on CPW and Westend, once considered the retreat for the less desirable millionaires, have names.

Also, look at definition 2b.

I thought so too, until I did a little research and found it it was a mansion before it was a funeral home.


I was hoping they would be capable of at least a tiny bit of creativity. I'd hate to tell people I live in "The Mansion". It's also going to be subdivided... does that make you think of mansions?

It does actaullay look like a mansion, so not so far-fetched.

Shame they had to build the new bit on the side, but still way nicer than had it been demolished and some modern thing been built there.

Well done developer, whoever you are.

Robin.

I wonder if there are any spirits from the past hanging around in the building

I hope they keep that marble fountain with the four horses. I've convinced my little niece and nephew that they come alive when there's a full moon, and run amok in the new Hamilton Park playground. (That climbing wall looks awfully hoof-dented, don't you think?)

I couldn's agree with you more, Tern - the place looks +1000% better. Does anyone know what the plans are for it?

I'm always surprised that the church building across the street hasn't been purchased up - the little church looks abandoned - and turned into condos or a private home.

Wow, doesn't this place look a thousand times better now with all that horrible white and green siding and paint off!

It looks almost beautiful, great news for the neighborhood that they are refurbishing this place rather than demolishing and building some disproportional modern carbuncle.

There's a reason. Did you ever see one of those news stories about a dry cleaner that suddenly and unexpectedly goes out of business and the customers clothes get locked inside and they can't get them back? This was a similar situation except it wasn't clothes that got locked inside. I remember how irate the customers were when they couldn't get their dead relatives back.


you're joking.....right?

An interesting sidebar to the funeral home that it once was the residence of Dr. Kopechne, the uncle of Mary Jo Kopechne, who died in July of '69 when Ted Kennedy's car went off the Chappaquiddick Bridge. Just a bit more lore to the place.

Hi have heard about the coffin corner in the old homes.

I looked it up on the net:

The above is actually a very popular architectural myth that grows with every historic house tour. The reason for the indentations on the staircases is purely architecturaly decorative. Evidence does not exist which shows that people could not merely move the body downstairs where the coffin was being kept for showing.

any home older than say 70 or 80 years has had dead bodies in and out of it.

funerals used to be held in living rooms.

in old homes and apartment buildings with narrow staircases, you often see little alcoves cut into the walls at the landings. though they conveniently hold statues of the Virgin Mary, they're called "coffin corners," because that extra bit of space made it easier for a coffin to make it upstairs.

I'd be more freaked out living in a place where a lot of people died.....like a converted hospital.

While it sits empty, the neighbors are loving all the free off-street parking they're getting.

There are a group of investor that bought it for about $1mm a couple years ago. They want $2mm if you have the pocket change.

Honestly - if I had the coin it would be an awesome single family home.

Does anyone know anything about the large, seemingly abandoned funeral home on the corner of Jersey at 4th street? It's a really interesting building, but hasn't been in use for years--yet no For Sale sign is ever there.

It's not zoned for multiple car parking so the owner of funeral home is in violation of parking authority ordinance and several have complained to me personally while making calls to Councilman Fulop on their behalf.
