Ridgewood Victorian Appears in NYTimes Satisfying My Curiosity

The New York Times.

I pass by this blue and gray gingerbread Victorian all the time and am fascinated by it. My kids always ask if it’s haunted. This weekend, The New York Times wrote an article about it satisfying my curiosity telling the story behind the house and who lives there. For best-selling thriller author, Harlan Coben, the house seems to be a perfect fit. Twenty years ago, he and his wife, Anne Armstrong-Coben, a pediatrician, bought this home on Maple and were pleased to find a perfect balance between its old world charm and modern conveniences. Coben told the NYTimes, “It was hard for me to imagine living in a house this spectacular,” Mr. Coben said. “I had panic attacks about living in a house this cool.” Here’s the full article.
