'Shadow Brook Farm'
'Shadow Brook Farm', the Dr. Ernest Fahnestock estate designed by Harrie T. Lindeberg c. 1909 in Shrewsbury, New Jersey. Fahnestock was an honorary police surgeon and doctor. He shot himself in the head at the age of 60 in his Manhattan townhouse at 954 Fifth Avenue in 1937 (though his death was listed as accidental it sure seems like a suicide). The Manhattan townhouse was razed later that year and replaced with a Rosario Candela apartment building (955 Fifth). Today 'Shadow Brook Farm' operates as 'Shadowbrook', a wedding/banquet hall.
