Inside Grey Gardens

I know Grey Gardens is all over blog land,
but I had to join in.




The dilapidated mansion was sold in 1979 after the death of Big Edie Beale.
Before setting out to renovate the house, the new owner took the time to document what was
left behind. The New York Times is showing this collection of photos to the public for the first time.
They are not just a look into a homes interior but into the minds of its former owners.

It really is fascinating to see the photos, and I think it is fantastic the new owner took the time to document it before renovating.
