Nathan's visit to Longue Vue in New Orleanscomments (8) December 21st, 2012 in blogs
Today's photos are from Nathan Turoff in Hoboken, New Jersey. Nathan says, "I just made my first visit to New Orleans, and spent an afternoon at Longue Vue, a Neo-Classical house with Moderne overtones (or a Moderne House with Neo-Classical overtones) built in the 1940s by a prominent New Orleans family. December isn't a peak moment for the property--which has an extensive garden of native iris plants and what I'm told is a beautiful camellia garden--but there was still much to enjoy. For a life-long resident of the Northeast, the tropical feeling of New Orleans comes as quite a surprise, and the incredibly lush flora--which threatens to consume even the largest houses--gives the city an alien, almost surreal, feeling."
