|Bringing Back Holleywood
Our friends Barbara and Pedro had us over for drinks yesterday. "I have something for you," Barbara said, disappearing into her bedroom. What could it be? We aren't in the habit of exchanging gifts, and surely not for Easter. She reappeared with a lovely painted wood jewelry box. "I bought it at the tag sale last summer. It belongs to the house," she said, handing it to me. I demurred at first, but she kindly insisted. And so we've received our first housewarming present.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
