    I've been to the Vanderbilt's summer party mansions in Newport, RI, but if I had millions of dollars I made orchestrating a depression I would have built a mansion there too, what a beautiful spot!

    Since I’m looking at this (and linking to it in a post), remind me to sucker my parents into taking me to the Biltmore next time I’m visiting. Asheville is about an hour from their house. I’ve been by it on the highway, and I had to listen to my mom prattle on about how fantastic it is :P

    Back in the early 70’s while living in Palm Beach, I became friends with a young man named Patrick Vanderbilt who asked me to accompany him on a European jaunt, which I agreed to do (we had mutual friends) provided my young daughter could go along, which he thought was a great idea so I arranged for a new passport which included my daughter. He had mentioned, as I recall, that his aunt was Consuelo Vanderbilt. Does this sound accurate, or could she have been his grandmother?
