Today's Featured Building: Pistilli Grand Manor

Steinway & Sons Piano Factory
In 1910, Pistilli Grand Manor was completed and was to host Steinway and Son's Piano factory in Queens, New York. Originally from Germany, Steinway purchased 400 acres of land, and along side the factory, he built matching Victorian townhouses and a church.[1] The area has since been referred to as Steinway Village or Long Island City.[2]


After the piano factory, Pistelli Grand Manor became Stern's warehouse. The original owner Nikos Kefalides, died in the crash of Swissair Flight 111 and left the building abandoned for two decades.[3]


Joseph Pistilli purchased the land and renovated it into condominiums with retail and commercial space in 2008.
