and that 11.5 million dollar home was Ogden Phipps house, designed by Delano & Aldrich. I have pictures on the blog. It is an amazing home, absolutely beautiful, its only downfall is it is right up against Glen Cove Road which is rather noisy.

That is actually how I found your blog, I was looking for an old NY Times article on the Ogden Phipps Fishing & Game Preserve in lowly North Wantagh and stumbled across it. I posted a link on Bygoneli.com too, hope you don't mind - I am really blown away by your work! Thanks a lot!

did you find any info on the Preserve? I remember finding an article from like 1909 or something round there talkin about Ogden's father Hal and him getting in trouble for like breeding ducks or something like that...but it pertained to their game preserve. Do you know what has become of their preserve?

That's the same article I read, but I can't find it anymore. A lot of the preserve was hacked up by the construction of the Southern State and Wantagh Parkways. Everything left over was sold in 1949 and became the Forest City neighborhood in North Wantagh. That article has some good history on the property going back to the Phipps era. I grew up a few hundred feet from there and spent many days fishing in that same lake and wandering through the woods. Never knew about the history of it until pretty recently!

Yes, I was referring to the Broadway Mall. Roosevelt Field is a nice mall as well but BM is closer to where I used to visit and so it was an easier drive.

The Village of Westbury is immediately south of the Village of Old Westbury, with the Village of Old Westbury to the north of, and the Village of Westbury to the south of, The Jericho Turnpike.
