Life Along the Hudson: The Historic Country Estates of the Livingston Family is Pieter Estersohn’s most recent book. An acclaimed photographer of architecture and interiors, Estersohn’s work appears frequently in major magazines, including Architectural Digest. This book features three dozen country homes, many overlooking the Hudson River, and offering some of the finest examples of American architecture and landscape design. Constructed on land owned by the influential Livingston family who settled in the area in the late 17th century, many have been restored to their former splendor by the original owners’ descendants as well as recent leaders of New York City industry and the arts. In this talk, Pieter, who owns a home in Red Hook, will focus on those estates that fall within the boundaries of our Town. Books will be available for autographs and purchase. Free and open to the public. Refreshments follow the program.
