Historic Aerials

Check out Historic Aerials for some very interesting views into Long Island's past.  Try 77 Crescent Beach Road Glen Cove NY and click the 1966 map to see 'Winfield Hall' and Glen Cove frozen in 1966, or try 1 Wheatley Road Old Westbury NY to see 'Crossroads' and Old Westbury (click the pan button to move around).  There is really nothing quite like this.

Did you see Spring Hill yet? - Kyle

Spring Hill, Roslyn House, Bagatelle, Crossroads, Rosemary Hall, Knole all in their original form. Amazing.

I saw Rosemary Farms and it looks like the house was already taking a turn of mal-maintenance

By '66 many of these places were unfortunately on their last legs. Pembroke in Glen Cove would come down only 2 years after the '66 photo. It was more or less abandoned by that point.

can you just type in the name of the house or do you need the address to get the aerial photos to work
