Huguette Clark, the 104-year-old copper heiress whose intensely reclusive lifestyle and collection of empty mansions has made her the subject of public curiosity in recent years, died this morning at Beth Israel Medical Center, where she had been registered under a pseudonym.
Clark is best known in New York City real estate circles as the owner of a 42-room spread at 907 Fifth Avenue valued at around $100 million, though she hadn’t been seen there since she was hospitalized 20 years ago. (via The Real Deal)
