Last week's Where in Chester? clue snagged lots of correct answers.

Matthew Van Der Meulen writes, "That is the corner of the Greenwald Law Office on Brookside Ave. Corner would be looking out toward the traffic light coming at the Shop-Rite intersection. This was the Congers Funeral Home when I was growing up 2 doors down."

Spot on.

Chester historian Clif Patrick gives some more background: "This detail is former residence of William A. Lawrence, famous for the production of Neufchatel and Cream Cheeses. It is now occupied Greenwald Law Offices, across Brookside Avenue from the Chester Mall. Attached images for the Chester Historical Society — photo from 'Chester — The Beautiful Suburb, Orange County, New York.' 1895 lithograph of 'Lawrence Cream Cheese Factory' from Portrait and Biographical Record of Orange County."

Paul Eversley, Jackson Shepherd, and Ken Newbold also got it right.

(Several readers thought it was the Orange County Trust Building, which is the same color and also ornate.)

Thank you for playing along.
