Clarence F. True moved to Manhattan in 1890 and took an office in the same building as noted developer Charles G. Judson, who promptly hired True and kept him very busy for several decades. True's style of architecture was described at the time as "Elizabethan Renaissance." William Van Alen, architect of The Chrysler Building, trained in True's office.
In 1899, Clarence bought up all Riverside Drive lots then available below West 84th Street with a plan to cover them "with beautiful dwellings" of his own creation.
True took the best for himself and designed 40 Riverside as his personal residence. Requiring two years to build, True maximized the benefits of the exquisite corner space. The light was so appealing that the artist Marc Chagall acquired the house in the 1940s and lived there for approximately ten years.
