John joined Halstead Property LLC in 1991 after a twenty year career as a writer. Last book: "The Vanderbilts and the Gilded Age" with an Introduction by Louis Auchincloss (St. Martin’s Press, 1991). Current focus is sales and rentals of architecturally interesting coops, condos, and townhouse properties, primarily on the Upper East and Upper West Sides of Manhattan, but also in Chelsea, the Upper Upper West Side, the Village, and/or anywhere good buildings are found. Architecture is John’s lifelong passion. His weekly column, Big Old Houses, appears regularly on David Patrick Columbia’s New York Social Diary.
John purchased and renovated half a dozen West Side brownstones during the real estate boom of the 1970s. He spends the working week at a pied a terre on East 63rd St in Manhattan, but home is Millbrook, NY, in a large historic house built by the founder of Union Carbide. Called “Daheim,” this house was occupied during the mid-1960s by the notorious Dr. Timothy Leary’s League for Spiritual Discovery.
John’s widely read blog, "Big Old Houses," which appears every Tuesday on David Patrick Columbia’s New York Social Diary, recently earned the Victorian Society of America’s award for "Best New Media of 2012."
John is an avid sportsman, an accomplished equestrian and a longtime squash player. John’s daughter, Jazzy, after earning a Masters degree in Special Education from Lehigh University, married a local Lehigh boy and settled down to teach special education in the Saucon Valley public school system.
