Harbor Hill's Fountain

Harbor Hill, Clarence MacKay's 600 acre estate in Roslyn, had its main house designed by McKim, Mead & White. The fountain was on the wing of the house that faced Hempstead Harbor, and is pictured illuminated for a party held in honor of Charles Lindbergh on June 13, 1927. Unfortunately, Harbor Hill was demolished, but there is a great book on the estate with a lot of old photographs.
