The above is The Breakers Mansion in Newport, that I visited during my vacation in the U.S. last month. The mansion belonged to the Vanderbilt family and since 1948 it is open to the public as part of The Preservation Society of Newport County. (for more info please see here)
Here are some phone shots I took by the sea:
- It is a city in Rhode Island, United States.
- Known as a New England summer resort and for the famous Newport Mansions.
- A major 18th century port city, Newport now contains among the highest number of surviving colonial buildings of any city in the United States.
- It was known for being the city of some of the “Summer White Houses” during the administrations of Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy.
