A week or so ago, I posted an image of the Princeton a cappella group the Katzenjammers, but my attendance at their event was a happy accident. I really wanted to see, and take pictures of, the venue where they appeared, Greenwood Gardens in Short Hills, N.J.
Greenwood, once a Gilded Age grand estate, has been saved from neglect, reopening as a public park and cultural center in late April, when I—and goodness knows how many others—got a look at this reclaimed site. From the back of the brick manor house, where I took this photo, the Italianate garden rolls and beckons before the eyes, infinitely inviting. There are even more fascinating spots on the grounds, which I hope to present to you in more shots over the next week or so.
