'Tryon Hall'

'Tryon Hall', the C.K.G. Billings estate designed by Guy Lowell c. 1903 along Fort Tryon Park in New York City pictured in 1914 shortly after the completion of Billings' $250,000 driveway designed by Buchman & Fox.  Click HERE for more on 'Tryon Hall' and HERE for a 1913 NYTimes article on the driveway.  Photo from the Museum of the City of New York.

It all looks more like a 1930's set for a Hollywood Horror film than a real landscape and place, doesn't it?

The Reaper of Fort Tryon starring Edward G. Robinson and Humphrey Bogart c. 1937....I'd totally watch that.
