The Mansion (taken in 2011)

One gorgeous Sunday evening we went to to a big band concert at Boscobel. For those who don’t know it Boscobel is a Federal style mansion just outside Cold Spring. The house used to be in the Bronx. It was about to be demolished when preservationists took over and moved the entire house, piece by piece, up to its present location. It has one of the best views of the Hudson that I know. In summer they hold a Shakespeare festival under a large tent.

The audience came early and had a picnic in front of the mansion. The band was decent and the singers were quite good. Unfortunately some of the instrumental soloists were not quite up to requirements. A fun time was had by all.
