Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
This is a great picture of 'Martin Hall.' You clearly see architectural detail not clearly seen before, like the urns & Greek pattern balustrade silhouetted against the sky. You also see domestic elements like the furniture on the patio (or whatever they called it), the handing lamp overhead ... & in the front (far right side) the American flag on a pole -- which I had not seen in other photographs. Where are the dogs running across the lawn?
This is another of my favorites, and I know I'm the minority, but I loved the original Victorian "show-boat" interiors.Off topic, I was cruising Daniel Gale last night and saw what seemed to be quiet a few estates this site is familiar with up for sale.
Not alone in that minority. This place with the riverboat interior hall had chutzpah. I am sure they didn't build to please anyone but themselves. Critics be damned.
