    Woodrow Wilson Hall, formerly known as the Shadow Lawn mansion, was built in 1929 as the private residence of former F.W. Woolworth Company president Hubert Templeton Parson and his wife. The building encompasses 130 rooms on three main floors, plus rooftop and lower-level rooms. In 1980, the building was the scene for the filming of Annie, serving as the Park Avenue mansion of the character Daddy Warbucks.
