The Spinzia book lists Ann Chilton McDonnell Grace Kendell (former wife of Oliver Grace) and Donald McIntosh Kendall as living on Bayville Road in Locust Valley. I was wondering if this gate led to their estate. I love you site!

That is the entrance to the old Dieold estate. I dont think anything else is left of it. Subdivided and developed sometime in hte 1950's.

Does anyone know where Robert S Lovett last Locust Valley home was that he died in May 1986? I read that 40 Piping Rock Rd was his home but i'm not sure.

I thought the Former Lovett home in Locust Valley was on Piping Rock Rd where he died in may 1987? Never knew he own any others?
