Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
As many of you, Lenore Ulric lived in Croton for many years. Prior to her arrival in the village, however....
The Lenore Ulric House -- No. 254 W. 75th Street
EXCERPTED: As her fame and popularity grew, so did her fortune. She purchased the house at No. 254 West 75th Street. It was the beginning of the end of the quiet times for the brick and stone residence.
Just as her fame and popularity increased her fortune, so too it increased her ego, temper and disposition. By the 1920s she was a top draw for Belasco. The New York Times would call her “an actress whose name in white lights blazing on a playhouse marquee was always more compelling of attention than the attraction in which she was appearing.”
Lenore could play a wide range of roles—in “The Heart of Wetona” she played an Indian maiden; in “Tiger Rose” a French Canadian heroine; she played a Chinese girl in “The Son-Daughter;” in “Kiki,” one of her trademark roles, she played a street urchin in Paris; and in “Lulu Belle,” she was a mixed-race adventuress. But particularly she was known for her roles as hot-blooded, fierce tempered women. The Times would later say “In the years of her greatest success, an ‘Ulric role’ was an understood phrase.” READ AND SEE MUCH MORE AT http://daytoninmanhattan.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-lenore-ulric-house-no-254-w-75th.html
