A BRIEF HISTORY #kreischermansion
The Kreischer Mansion has been standing on the hill overlooking Arthur Kill since 1885
It was one of two mansions built by German immigrant Balthasar Kreischer for his sons Charles and Edward
There are rumours of infidelity, mismanagement, financial troubles and murder that fueled a feud between the brothers
Balthasar, Edward, Edward’s wife, their children, and cook, were murdered and perished in a mysterious fire that destroyed their home
The remaining Kreischer Mansion was run as a restaurant front to the mafia until 1996
In 1998 the Kreischer Mansion was bought with the intention of restoration and eventual sale by Isaac Yomtovian
In 2008 the caretaker, a hitman for the Bonnano crime family, was charged with the brutal murder of a rival mob associate committed three years earlier
