Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
Great photographs. The subsequent additions are not the best fate for one of these large houses; but at least we're not left looking for remnants of the garden.
Horrendous and perhaps the worst placement of a building addition ever. Can one possibly be a good steward of an old mansion and also obliterate one of the main building facades and think it's a good design? Fire the architect (if they bothered to use one) and the school board.
Insensitive additions are not hard to come by. One of the best (by which I mean the worst) is the horrific addition across the front of the J. Ogden Armour estate in Lake Forest for the Lake Forest Academy. Egomaniac architect is the only explanation.
