Open House Tours, Book Signing

Scheduled for the Kingsland Manor

Open House, Meet the Authors, Oct. 18, 2015

Two local authors, Christina Surretsky and Brian Ostrowski will be holding a book signing at the Kingsland Manor

Nutley’s newest author Christina Surretsky, recently featured in an article in the magazine Nutley Neighbors, will be discuss and sign of her latest book, Divine Bloodlines.

Divine Bloodlines

A review of  on “The Readers Gazette”:

Pairing the teenage paranormal angst of the Twilight Saga with the action packed, comedic mystery of the Stephanie Plum novels, Christina Surretsky introduces a new kind of heroine in her debut young adult novel Divine Bloodlines.

Sixteen year old Zoey Chase is just your average teenage girl whose social life isn’t exactly what you would call “thriving.” But she has a secret ability that even those closest to her don’t know: Zoey can heal people by touching them. She discovered this power at a young age, but before she could ask her parents about it, her father died, and she was too late to help. How can she possibly tell her mother about her ability to heal when she didn’t save her father?

When twins Asher and Levi move to town, they shake up more than Zoey’s social life. Surprised by golden boy Asher’s interest, she agrees to go on a date but ends up having to find another way home when things go wrong. Thankfully, despite being fairly menacing, Levi comes to her rescue.

Zoey risks revealing her secret as she grows closer to both brothers—but she may just discover they have hidden abilities of their own…...

Nutley writer Brian Ostrowski is a marketing and design professional by day and children's book author by night. Brian will be signing his latest book, The Kid Who Wasn’t Good at Anything, as well as his other children’s books.

From Brian’s website :

 The Kid Who Wasn't Good at Anything

Illustrated by Jamie Cosley, The Kid Who Wasn't Good at Anything follows one young boy as he struggles to find the one thing he’s good at, only to discover he has been good at something all along. Children and parents alike are sure to love the colorful illustrations, fun rhymes, and positive message.

When I Was Little (Just Like You)

Beautifully illustrated by award-winning illustrator Aleksandar Sotirovski, When I Was Little (Just Like You) outlines the differences between being a kid in the 70s and 80s and being a kid today.

The book is a great way to give children a glimpse of what life was like before the Internet, mobile devices, and play dates. A time when arcades, payphones, and roller rinks littered the landscape, and kids spent hours exploring, riding their bikes, and playing in the dirt.

Blip the Bit: And His Adventures in Retroville

Blip the Bit And His Adventures in Retroville chronicles a day in the life of Blip, and his three friends Bleep, Bloop, and Zip, as they skip through a computer-generated town filled with classic video game characters.

"Blip the Bit: And His Adventures in Retroville is a wonderful idea."

Kingsland Manor
to host 1860s style
base ball game

Saturday, 1 p.m. Sept. 19, 2015

at Yanticaw Park, Nutley, N.J.

Kingsland Manor to host a 1860s style base ball game

The Kingsland Manor is hosting a 1860s Base Ball game at Yanticaw Park, also known as "Boys Park" and is in need of players for the Kingsland Colonels Base Ball Club.

The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club versus Kingsland Colonels of Nutley Base Ball Club will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19. Rain date is Sunday, Sept. 20.

The Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club plays by 19th Century rules, uses authentic replicas of 19th Century equipment and wears 19th Century uniforms. As was the custom in the mid-19th Century, all fielders play barehanded - they do not wear gloves. Today's Neshanock were re-established in 2001 by Brad "Brooklyn" Shaw, proudly reviving the original name of the team.

The Nutley Colonels were a semi-professional base ball club that was managed by a local All-State baseball star, Anthony J. San Giacomo. The Kingsland Manor is re-establishing that classic base ball club, fielding a 'Colonel's' team against the Neshanock Base Ball Club at Yanticaw Park on Sept. 19.

Colonel team members will be instructed in the original 19th Century rules by Brad Shaw at a get together at the Kingsland Manor in August. The suggested team uniform will be white long-sleeved shirts and pants of a similar color and pill-box styled base ball caps.

The Trust is also looking for sponsors to help offset our expenses. Sponsors will be featured in a program at the game. Please call 973-661-3410 or email for more information.

Digitized Kingsland Papers

Presented to Nutley Public Library

The Historic Restoration Trust of Nutley presented digitized versions of the Kingsland Papers to the Board of Nutley Library at their monthly board meeting on March 24, 2015, 

The original Kingsland Papers are held in the Kingsland Manor archive. The documents on velum and parchment cover the period from 1720 until 1911 when the Kingslands sold the Manor and surrounding property to Daniel McGinnity, a boxing promoter and trainer, and his wife, Katherine, who later ran a private hospital in the Manor.

In 2014, the Trust was given a matching grant by the Essex County Local Arts and History Programs to have these documents digitized to preserve them. In order to make these digitized documents available to the citizens of Nutley, the Trust provided microfilm and a DVD of the document images to the library.
