Not many home-owners can say, “MAE WEST cavorted here.” And while no one knows how much time the hard-working entertainer devoted to "cavorting," if you were going to disport yourself, then you could do much worse during the 1930s than lounge around the gilded great-house and grounds of Adolph Zukor.
• • Rockland County columnist Kathy Kahn writes: When Rockland County’s famed Dellwood Country Club, the former “farm” retreat of Paramount Pictures’ founder Adolph Zukor, came on the market in 2008, it was an opportunity investor and attorney Jeff Mandelbaum and his family couldn’t pass by. ...
