The Sheridan House

The Sheridan House on Puritan Ave in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens always stood out as far as memories from childhood go. The NY Times wrote an article about the place after Elizabeth Sheridan passed away this summer. She began decorating her house to honor her husband after he died. It was as excessive as they come, covered in plastic flowers, faux christmas trees, animal figurines and more. Some neighbors complained of it’s garishness but it stood out as a lovely, over the top nod to individualism and devotion in a neighborhood known for strict “standards of taste and design.” It was a technicolor dream in it’s own right.
