Marx Brothers’ Home to Become Landmark

July 21, 2010

The Marx Brothers were masters of comedy in their time and classic characters today, and their Upper East Side childhood home will soon be a New York landmark. The Landmarks Committee of Community Board 8 voted that the Marx Brothers’ former home, located at 179 East 93rd Street, be a part of the Carnegie Hill Historic District.
