7 West 46th Street New York City - Former Residence of Diamond Jim Brady

7 West 46th Street - Google Maps

Many, many, years ago I passed this building and there was a plaque next to the front door that “Diamond Jim Brady” had lived here. The main floor shortly thereafter was turned into a Japanese Restaurant and the plaque disappeared somewhere along the way. I think also that the present façade is colored faux-stone designed stucco and not the original brownstone.

It is amazing sometimes the buildings that manage to survive in NYC.

3/17/14 Urban Legend Alert –

Have been informed that Diamond Jim Brady did not live here by a reliable source. A typo in a 1952 New York Times article had a typo regarding 7 West 86th Street NYC etc.
