Mansard Roofs

For some reason I had a terrible time remembering the term “mansard roof ”  for the longest time. It just doesn’t fall into common conversation easily. “This beer is as flat as a mansard roof” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. 

It is a very distinctive piece of architecture and, happily, somewhat common in the Village of Ossining. Here are a few random ones near my old stomping grounds.
