Montclair Photographer Showcases the Town’s Most Picturesque Homes in New Book

Stately Homes of MontclairIf you’re like me, you have a few Montclair “dream” homes (there is a large white house on Upper Mountain Avenue with gorgeous wrap around porches and balconies that is my favorite). Truth is, so many Montclair homes are beautiful, but some just stand out. Montclair photographer and videographer Andrew Wander has put together a collection of 50 stand out—or what he calls “Stately”—in his coffee table book “Stately Homes of Montclair.”

Stately Homes of Montclair ($59.95) features beautiful photography of the town’s most picturesque houses. Wander started this project seven years ago after moving to town from Bergen County. He came up with the idea after visiting a bookstore and seeing some coffee table books of other great towns and thought Montclair didn’t have anything to showcase its charm.

Wander would drive around town and stop at the homes that struck his attention. “I started knocking on doors telling the homeowners about my project and thankfully 95 percent said sure,” says Wander.

This thug pretending to be a leader needs to rethink his political career. A sustained thrashing in the polls may force him to do just that. "President Christie"? Are you kidding? Only "President Donald" would trump that.
