On the top floor of the property is Harris’ office, which is supposedly hidden behind a trick door. The secret entrance opens by pressing the eyeball of a magician on a vintage poster, according to a 2015 profile by Architectural Digest.

The house was originally built in 1908, and previously served as a bed-and-breakfast, speakeasy for mill workers and music schools for girls before it was renovated into a single-family home.

The exquisite Harlem brownstone was favorably documented in Architectural Digest in 2016, as well as in 2019 for a holiday tour.
