Leading international photographer Pieter Estersohn captures the beauty of thirty-five sublime country estates for his book Life Along the Hudson: The Historic Livingston Country Estates. The houses came from the drawing boards of Stanford White, A. J. Davis, Calvert Vaux, Warren and Wetmore and others, built on land once owned by the Livingston clan. This scenic stretch of properties offers some of the finest examples of American architecture and landscape design.
