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 in 2005

The Kreischer Mansion has been featured on Boardwalk Empire! Gotham, The Bones .. 


IlluminArt Productions was co-founded in 2002 by Arlene Sorkin and Patty Ceresnie in Detroit. After Ms. Sorkin’s move to Staten Island, NY in 2005, IlluminArt officially gained non-profit status. IlluminArt’s goals are to increase the numbers of schools where we can fill a need for theater programming and to write and present more original work on important social issues.
