    Quite fascinating. I wish they would do a series for South Florida/Palm Beach.

    CORRECTION: It was Douglas Fairbanks, not Junior, who sublet Grayhall, and the Playboy Mansion is in the lower left hand corner of the video when it mistakenly focuses on the house next door. Google Earth isn’t easy! Mea culpa!

      I noticed that the Playboy mansion mistake in the Google flyover. The house Gross names as the Playboy mansion is the “Moroccan fantasy” that’s just down the street.

        Actually, it’s directly across the street from the Playboy Mansion.

    Kenny, as far as YouTube videos are concerned, you found an amazing one. WOW! That was really cool. I agree with Daniel, he needs to do one for Palm Beach, but also, the Hamptons, Atlanta, and your neck of the woods (i.e. Alpine / Saddle River)

Would you please forward this email to Jane. Good Luck with your new book it looks great.
