1970: CROTON'S OWN VERA NEUMANN--A.K.A. SIMPLY VERA!

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools --in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

An Everything Croton reader and former resident sent us this 1970 article on Croton's own Vera Neumann yesterday. For those who don't know, Vera was a textile artist known for her bold patterns and more. Enormously popular in the 60's and 70's, her signature scarves and home goods are highly collectible today.

  1. Vera Neumann is mentioned in Isabel Allende's "The Japanese Lover." I remember going to her house in Croton for a fundraiser back in the 1960s--she had a Calder in the front yard. I used to buy her scarves (with the Vera signature) for my mother, who was also named Vera.
