Mansion for Sale – and Dig That “Open House”

In the 1940s Vincent Astor moved from his Hudson River mansion to Astor Courts, a sporting complex on the estate (tennis and squash courts, swimming pool, etc.) which he had converted to a home. After his marriage to Brooke Astor, presumably they lived there from time to time.

Tomorrow, Astor Courts hosts Chelsea Clinton's wedding. The place is for sale, and perhaps the lavish "open house" staged by the Clintons will entice a buyer.
