Welcome to Everything Croton--a collection of all things Croton, our history, our homes, our issues, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
MANY THANKS TO VILLAGE HISTORIAN MARC CHESHIRE FOR THE HEADS UP ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
As many of you may know, Vera Neumann was one of Croton's most notable residents. You can read more about that and her Croton connection, at https://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2017/10/fall-2017-edition-of-croton-historian.html
Currently her former home, FULLY RESTORED, is now on the market---and a video was recently uploaded to Youtube:
"We’re in Croton-on-Hudson, New York visiting the Neumann House designed by Marcel Breuer. The Bauhaus inspired home was originally commissioned in 1953 by Breuer’s friend Vera Neumann, who was an influential fashion designer. The exterior of the modern home uses pops of primary colors. Within its walls, the home contains many great mid-century and neutral finishes. The fashionable and unique home also showcases two front doors, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, and a peaceful view overlooking the Hudson River."
