Are you hooked?
But I already know the spoiler of how Season 3 ends...
although I refuse to watch the episodes before they air in the USA.
I think it is kind of ironic though...
that America is so wrapped up in this series.
It seems we Americans are conflicted
over our feelings about the rich people we love to hate.
I am in the camp the believes wealthy people add value.
Just look at what they leave behind for us to enjoy!
And seriously, who are you going to tax
if you destroy those making lots of taxable income?
Oh, I'm not trying to make any enemies...
I just really liked touring this old mansion
and getting lost in the old world that once was.
Kind of like an American Downton Abbey.
In 1851 at the age of 17
Catholina Lambert left England for America,
the "Land of Opportunity."
Lambert became successful in the silk industry in New Jersey
and built this home in Paterson, NJ
to house his collection of art.
But in 1913 debt found him and he had to sell his art
and mortgage his home
where he continued to live until he died in 1923.
The property now belongs to Passaic County
and can be toured for a small fee.
