Re: When is Nature not Wright?

Lake Erie and Lake Ontario are also at record high levels, this has caused Graycliff to alter plans to restore beach access. The fear is that the higher levels and the resulting higher ice mass during winter months create an unsustainable condition for improvements at beach level.

Re: Videos: Graycliff - Derby, NY

i prefer to think of the esplanade as an outdoor room, the top of the side walls and bench matches the floor level of the house. Similar in many ways to the outdoor space at the Freeman house, although Graycliff's does not start stepping down the incline.
