Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has teamed up with 福克斯民族 为一个 新系列 that explores the rich history of some of the United States’ most resplendent estates, offering viewers a rare glimpse into the art, architecture and culture of five of the county’s hidden gems.
的 “Castles USA” 系列, which features buildings inspired by Medieval, Gothic, Byzantine, and Italian Renaissance architecture, examines the stories behind the magical structures and the people who once occupied them.
Pirro told “狐狸 & 友人” on Monday that she most enjoyed visiting The Breakers, on the coast at Newport, R.I.
“It is magnificent,” 她说. “These places are breathtaking. They’re the interplay of culture, and architecture, and art and there’s a story in every castle.”
The Breakers was built as a “summer cottage” for railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt II during the Gilded Age of the late 19th century. Named for the breaking waves of the Atlantic Ocean it overlooks, The Breakers is one of the most popular historic house museums in the United States. The estate opened in 1895, at a time when Newport functioned as the nation’s summer social capital, and became the crown jewel in a city populated by mansions, Pirro explained.
Pirro said she first got the idea to visit the Rhode Island mansion during the coronavirus pandemic when travel restrictions made it difficult to leave the country.
“It was during the pandemic and I had a thought, 我说, '你知道吗? People can’t travel out of the United States, and there are so many beautiful places in the United States,” 她解释.
Pirro also highlighted Oheka Castle, located on the North Shore of Long Island. The French-style chateau is the second-largest private residence ever built in United States and was designed for financier and philanthropist Otto Hermann Kahn.
的 “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host said she was surprised to find a portrait of a man who bore a strong resemblance to the “Monopoly Man” in the castle, only to learn later that Kahn was the inspiration behind the board game character.
“I never knew it,” Pirro said. “I just saw his picture there … he’s all dolled up, and he’s perfect for the Monopoly game because he was a big financier.”
