An Abandoned Country Estate in Yonkers – Rent Alder Manor For Film Shoots & Events
Note: I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ALDER MANOR AND WEDDINGS!! I’ve tried to figure it out, but the person in charge of weddings has never called me back, and it remains a complete mystery. I receive emails daily complaining about a lack of response for weddings, and I just don’t understand the situation. Very sorry! It sits on a hill just outside of New York City, completely empty and, for years, decaying and nearly forgotten… This is Alder Manor, and it’s without question one of the most amazing places I’ve ever had the pleasure of scouting. After both he and his wife died, the mansion was traded between owners who had no use for it and eventually wound up abandoned. When you first enter, you find yourself in the enormous Main Hall, with the huge grand staircase off to one side. Reverse of the main hall.

America's Top-Rated Burgers at Epicurious M ark this as an historic moment: Never before in the history of burger reviewing has such an esteemed group of food writers been gathered to reveal their favorite hamburger joints. Epicurious asked renowned restaurant critics from around the country to identify their local hamburger heaven and describe the beef, buns, condiments, and toppings. Some combinations are classically simple (ground chuck on a bun) while others get fancy (want Kobe beef with that?). Buns range from sesame-seed to kaiser roll to rosemary-scented focaccia (nice idea, San Francisco!). Toppings are all over the map, too: There's Gruyère cheese and Kraft American, garlic aïoli and regular mayo, grilled onions and pickle chips, Bacon Bits, horseradish, and, of course, burger's best friend, ketchup. We made sure to cover the map: Miami, Washington, DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, Santa Fe, and New Orleans.

House in Gerês by Correia Ragazzi Architects Architects Graça Correia and Roberto Ragazzi designed this concrete house in Portugal. From the architects: As a half-buried house in its relation to the main access it appears diminished; on the other hand, from the river, it appears as a glass frame dissimulated on the vegetation. This weightless intervention is enhanced by the overhanging part that shoots off the riverbank cliff maximizing its transparent appearance from the river reducing land occupancy and preserving all trees.
