Alice Austen was one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers and over her life, she captured about 8,000 images. A rebel who broke away from the ties of her Victorian environment, Alice Austen created her own independent life. The Austen house and the garden are seen from every possible angle or driveway and waters edge served as the first subjects for Alice’s camera. Visitors can relax outside on the long span of grass or enjoy the view by the water. The Alice Austen House also holds exhibitions for photographers regularly.

Clear Comfort (the Alice Austen House) was built in 1690 as a one-room Dutch farmhouse. After being bought by Austen’s grandfather, John Haggerty Austen, Alice herself moved there as a young girl in the late 1860s with her mother, Alice Cornell Austen. She lived there with her lifelong companion Gertrude Tate until 1945. Concerned citizens saved it from demolition in the 1960s. The house successfully gained status as a historic landmark and was restored in the mid-1980s.

Let Your Little Animal Hop Around with Exotic Animals

Your little bundle of joy has a birthday coming up. You want to throw a party, something a little bit out of the norm but nothing too crazy. People in general love animals, but kids especially love to learn about them. If your little animal has a thing for snakes, cockatoos, or scorpions, they would love a birthday party with some exotic animals.

 

Why having animals at your child’s birthday party would be great?

Not only do kids love them, but they could learn so much about animals in the process. Let them interact and experience some animals they normally would not see. If your child loves has a special place in their heart for farm animals, would be a spectacular idea for them.

 

Who needs clowns?

Balloon animals might entertain smaller children. But your child wants the real thing minus the jokes the clown might throw his or her way. Adults love to meet and connect with animals as well. From large animals like horses or alligators to smaller animals like capuchin monkeys or rabbits, there is an animal for everybody to come face to face with.

 

Photo-ops with Animals

Take all the pictures you want. Share on Instagram or Facebook so your family who couldn’t be there can get in on the fun as well! This birthday will be a fun day that your little beast and guests will enjoy and never forget.
