March marks WAG’s annual home design issue, so what better month to have our first home design event?
Join us March 27 from 11:30 to 1 p.m. at Greystone on Hudson, a 100-acre luxury real estate development in Tarrytown that was once the estate of Josiah W. Macy Jr., a partner of John D. Rockefeller Sr. in Standard Oil. Jennifer Pitman of Rago Arts & Auction Center, WAG’s What’s Collectible columnist, will be on hand to conduct an “Antiques Roadshow”-style appraisal, so come with a – small – treasure. And I’ll be giving a “Secrets of the Dead”-style mini lecture – another bow to PBS – on the unusual ancient Roman reliquary that was found on the sight. (It was in the summer of 2015 that Andy Todd, president of Greystone on Hudson, and his team discovered a marble artifact with a Latin inscription while excavating the site for 6 Carriage Trail. Their exciting find — a funerary pillar of Tiberius Claudius Saturninus, a former slave who collected inheritance taxes for the Roman Emperor Claudius in Greece — is now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.)
But how did it get there? You’ll just have to come to the event to find out.
There you’ll also meet Amy Aidinis Hirsch, one of the intriguing designers we’ve profiled in March WAG, enjoy tours of the development, which is a mix of stone and Dutch Colonial manses, and savor refreshments and riparian views.
