Fort Tryon Park Gatehouse

Whenever I walk through Fort Tryon Park I always think how lovely it would be to live here.
There’s a gatehouse which is one of only two structures which remain from when it was all Cornelius King Garrison Billings’s estate. It’s my fantasy home. Untapped Cities gives us a peek inside. The enchanting park however, was built by John D. Rockefeller Jr., who took over the property when Billings decided to move back to the city.

Doesn’t this look like a heavenly place to live?
