Newport, Rhode Island, blessed with stunning ocean vistas and constant sea breezes, is home to some of the most exceptional private residences in America. Its deeply rooted history makes it a perennial destination, with more than 3.5 million visitors each year. Although it is one of the most high profile towns in the country, Newport is also one of the most cloistered. Private Newport: At Home and in the Garden offers an invitation to venture beyond the privet hedges and massive iron gates. It is the first book to step inside the privately owned mansions to reveal a diverse collection of architectural jewels complemented by spectacular gardens. These homes, created by distinguished architects and landscape designers, are stunning examples of Newport's 375-year "old-world" heritage. Eighteen exquisite and unique homes are prominently featured-from the resilient crescent curve of majestic Seafair, which withstood the Hurricane of '38, to the prizewinning Japanese garden at Wildacre, to the nostalgic working farm of heritage breeds at Swiss Village-each contributing its own part to the "Eden of America."

Established by Colonials seeking religious and cultural freedom in 1639, Newport has enjoyed nearly four centuries of growth--from a thriving seaport to a summer hideaway for industrial revolution excesses, from an active Navy town to a modern world-class destination for sailing and tourism. But beyond the marbled mansions and active harbor-front wharves lie legendary locals building a city of living history, education, arts, and philanthropy. And as this "City-by-the-Sea" celebrates 375 years in 2014, residents honor the diversity of the people who keep it flourishing. Stone carvers John "Fud" Benson and son Nick utilize time-honored techniques etching gravestones and memorials by hand in the oldest trade shop in the country, while nearby, the largest high-tech megayachts in the world dock at the Dana family's Newport Shipyard. Newporter and Navy SEAL Terry Moy helped the last Apollo mission land safely back on Earth, while advocate Florence Gray helped keep affordable housing residents grounded only a few blocks from the city's upscale neighborhoods.

Newport Passport Application Processing Centre serves the whole of Wales and south west England. It deals with 47,000 passport applications annually-around 10 per cent of the national total. The Identity and Passport Service (IPS) proposes to close the Passport Office at Newport, with a loss of over 300 jobs, although the Home Office announced that a customer service centre would be retained in Newport to service South Wales and the South West of England. The piecemeal nature of the announcements suggests the lack of a co-ordinated strategy regarding the future of the IPS in Wales. The Office's significance to Wales and its value to the Welsh economy have not been truly appreciated by the Government. No economic impact assessment of the proposal has been completed, and the criteria on which the decision was based should be re-examined. The Newport Passport Office is the second largest employer in the city centre. Its closure would have a significant economic impact on the city and would be a further blow for the Welsh economy. The Committee is not convinced that long-term savings will be made by reducing the size of the Office. The IPS should, on the contrary, provide a detailed appraisal of the costs and benefits of consolidation and expansion as opposed to a reduction of services. Without the retention of the office in Newport, the Government's duty to provide a Welsh-language service to users may not be properly discharged.
