No. 10 Pickwick Road
No. 10 Pickwick Road in the South Strathmore development by Levitt & Sons, built in 1937 in Manhasset. The Levitt's used No. 10 as a model home and to promote their development they had this house wrapped in "cellophane zipped up the center, and tied with a big red bow. On April 23, 1937, Miss Mitzi Green star of Babes in Arms undid the zipper and by day's end some 5800 people had trooped through the new house" (Manhasset: The First 300 Years).
