William Kissam Vanderbilt (1849–1920) had three houses designed by Richard Morris Hunt. His townhouse, the "Petit Château" at 660 Fifth Avenue, New York, with details drawn in part from the late-Gothic Hôtel de Cluny, Paris, proved an influential example for other Gilded Age mansions, but was demolished in 1926.
