The Giant Marble Urn from Pembroke
This urn originally sat in front of Pembroke, Joseph DeLamar's estate in Glen Cove (seen below). When Pembroke was unfortunately demolished in 1968, the urn along with its duplicate were moved to Templeton, the Frederick Guest estate in Brookville. At the time the house had already been purchased by NYIT to be used as a conference center. After a 50 year life at Pembroke, the urn can still be seen today, 40 years after it moved 6 miles to its new home in front of Templeton.
