Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
Off topic, sorry Zach, but for those folks who have had an interest in the Carrère & Hasting designed "Blairsden" (Peapack, NJ) you're in luck with a chance to tour it in Spring 2014. It will be next year's 'Mansion in May' benefit decorator's showcase house.http://blog.nj.com/njv_mark_diionno/2013/09/blairsden_mystique_soon_to_be.html
The curved stairs around the front door reminds me of ‘Martin Hall’ (which Zach posted on August 14, 2013) because neither was well done (to my eye). “Martin Hall’s’ great hall looked like a river boat & ‘Dunstable’s’ looked like a set from a horror movie (especially with the harp). & both were, reportedly, later materially redone & looked great; but no after photos.
