Artist's Description

taken 20-Jan-2013; sunset. I was walking back from the monastery where I had taken photos, took a photo of NYC from the ridge and when I turned I saw the sun shining through the archway of the carport! gorgeous. I applied a grunge texture to darker the sides and the sky at the top – the rest is how I saw it.

Kip’s Castle, is a 10-acre (40,000 m2) estate (8 acres in Verona, 2 acres (8,100 m2) in Montclair) on the ridge of First Mountain, on the border of Montclair and Verona townships. It contains a 9,000-square-foot mansion that replicates a medieval Norman castle, and a 6,000-square-foot two-story carriage house.

Kip’s Castle, originally known as “Kypsburg,” was constructed over a three-year period in the early 1900s by Frederic Ellsworth Kip and his wife, Charlotte Bishop Williams Kip. Frederic was a wealthy textile inventor and industrialist who also published several books related to United States tariff laws.

As a result of grants from the NJ Green Acres Program and the Essex County Recreation and Open Space Trust Fund, the County of Essex purchased Kip’s Castle in March 2007. The property is now part of the historic Essex County Park System.
