Posted in Holiday Train Show on December 11 2013, by Ann Rafalko

If you follow Broadway north from the Battery until it turns into New York State Route 9, and keep going to a town in Westchester, you will find me by taking a left and heading for the river. I was the home of a famous author, synonymous with New York City and New York State whose extensive travels influenced his most famous work and my architecture. I was once one of the most famous houses in all the land because of my beauty and my owner’s fame, but now I slumber until the spring when perhaps a spectral game of nine-pins will awaken me for the tourist season once again.
