This is the Van Nostrand-Starkins house in Roslyn, the oldest structure in the village, dating back to 1680. It has been restored to its 1810 appearance. While stopped at the traffic light facing this building, I was struck by how incongruous it is to have this modern traffic light right in front of the building. I just love the subtle angles that the roof lines make. Actually it kills me that this light is here, because it makes it impossible to photograph this beautiful architectural treasure properly.
