2336 Pre-War Condo for sale

Which war I wondered when I saw the ad in the WSJ today. There have been so many. Hitler was marching into Poland when I was born, and the U.S. anti-war folks were marching too, just like today. They were just a little cleaner and neater then.

But this condo is in NYC and apparently the whole building is being redone to "pre-war classic Greek Revival style." Maybe it was the Civil War? Classic Greek Revival was early to mid-1800s. Many Americans objected to "Mr. Lincoln's War" and there were riots in the streets of New York City, killing 1,000 people. Each condo will have 4,000+ square feet, 5 bedrooms, 2 fireplaces, a library, sumptuous baths. Prices range from a Michael Moore level of $8,750,000 to a George Soros type at $35,000,000. There are many ways to profit from wars, right?
