Thursday is "This Old House" Day

Today's classic example of a "sea or lake cottage" has a wrap around porch to beat all on these hot, hazy days of summer.  You can almost smell the sea air, can't you?  This simple Queen Anne house, located in Houghs Neck at 32 Bayview Avenue, was built in 1880 as a summer residence.  Houghs Neck was quite the summer resort back when this house was built.
