251 Dekalb, a modern upscale gated apartment community situated on a 26-acre hilltop overlooking King of Prussia held a Pop-Up Party on the picturesque patio of their East building for their residents as a pre-memorial day celebration.


Candlebrook Properties, which bought the 5 building complex in 2014, invested $50 million to renovate the property which also includes a substantial art collection situated throughout the complex, many pieces stemming from the personal collection of Candlebrook Properties’ President, Neil Rubler. The complex also features complementary La Colombe bar, a salt-water swimming pool, game room, Kidville, fitness center, and lush green spaces.

20 Photos of the Most Memorable Radnor Hunt Race Fashions and Hats

The Radnor Hunt Races celebrated its 87th Anniversary on May 20, 2017. Thousands of guests were on hand to watch seven races, including the Preakness which was shown on TV screens high above the ground, after 6 Radnor Races concluded. Despite the gloomy weather, most guests dressed in their derby finest, although I did see a few ho hum dull colors dotting the landscape this year which was surprising; attendees enjoyed parading the grounds while party hoping from tent to tent, or enjoying  the races at tailgate parties, in sponsor tents or by pulling up a chair along the fence. All proceeds from the Radnor Hunt Races benefit the land and water preservation programs of theConservancy | Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
