The Staircase of the Guggenheim Mansion
Guggenheim Memorial Library, Monmouth University, West Long Branch, New Jersey

This image, the first of three on this page, shows the curved staircase through the doorway of the adjacent sunken entrance hall.  The original chandelier is still in place.      Go to:  First Floor Plan    Tour Outline

Below is a view from the bottom step, the first of thirty-one.  The entrance hall is just visible in the lower right corner.  The wrought iron work in the rail is quite impressive and the classical geometric detail following the line of the stairs is repeated in several areas of the Mansion.      Back

This last view is taken from the first floor, just under the chandelier, and looks directly up to the ceiling of the second floor.
