The Balcony Building

This imposing Greek Revival building looks like a bank, city office, courthouse, or college building. Currently, it houses a dusty, dark museum. The decorative paintings on the balcony walls are nautical in content. The first floor is a stately museum with large gallery rooms filled with historical portraits, vases, and ephemera. The second floor has many decrepit rooms with peeling paint and water damage. There are separate rooms filled to the brim with Christmas decorations, art, knick-knacks, clothing, old filing cabinets, old wooden chairs, and a shower stall.

The Hudson River Mansion

While attending a pig roast at The Hudson River Mansion, I snooped around and was mesmerized by its dusty grandeur. Some of the rooms are pristine, such as the paneled octagonal library filled with old books and manuscripts. Others are worse for the wear from water damage or halted repairs, yet they retain a faded beauty. Tapestries, old paintings, heavily carved furniture, and intricate antique wallpapers abound in this stunning abode. The breathtaking grounds are immense and feature rolling hills, fields, forests, streams, rustic trails, long country roads, a riverfront beach, a tiny island, railroad tracks, and sunsets that defined the Hudson River School of painting.
