Paterson. Who knew?

A few years later, Carrere & Hastings designed a city hall for Portland Maine that combines this design with their design for the Frick. Very elegant.

Here, Here, Dilettante!

New Jersey has lovely buildings too - even Paterson!

How about a feature on the Twombley Mansion which is now Fairleigh Dickinson (or at least it was...left the East Coast twenty years ago)? And Morristown had beautiful estates most of which survived until the early seventies only to be razed to make way for ugly buildings.
