I am going at this weekend to visit Nelson Rockefeller Mansion – Kykuit Mansion.
Have been to Old Westbury Gardens in Long Island (John S. Phipps Mansion) and Newport Mansions Rhode Island (Elms - Edward Julius Berwind – The King of Coal, and Marble House - William K. Vanderbilt – The King of Steamship and Railroad).
The most impressed to me is the Marble House, in which not the marbles, but the juxtapositions of exquisite jade artworks apparently were from ancient China that I saw once in Peking Forbidden City.
Rockefeller was a lover for modern arts. I may not expect to see some Chinese arts over there. If there is any one who has been there, please leave some words to me. Thnx
