astor courts

one of the most beautiful rooms i've ever seen.

the room in its original state

the shade hanging from the glass ceiling is stunning.

this house is perfect.

a wonderful slideshow of images from the re-done astor courts
via the new york times.
the home was designed in 1902 for john jacob astor iv who died eight years later on the titanic. since then the house has been a convent and an old-age home.
