In the previous post I said that it would be the final set of pictures I would post on the Armour-Stiner house, but I couldn’t resist sharing this one because in a remarkable house this is probably its most remarkable feature.

Unfortunately, I didn’t take the picture, instead finding it on the internet. Why did I not take it? Well, apart from a couple of private rooms kept locked and used only by the owner, this was the only part of the house that we were not allowed to visit. I’m not sure exactly why, but the guide said something about the town not allowing it.

Apparently this room on the fourth floor was once the ballroom and the spiral staircase ascends to a cupola with what must be a spectacular view across the Hudson River.
