When 'Deepdale' Was For Sale
A brochure advertising 'Deepdale', the William K. Vanderbilt Jr. estate (and later his ex-wife Virginia Graham Fair Vanderbilt) designed by Horace Trumbauer c. 1902 in Great Neck with alterations by Carrere & Hastings. Trumbauer's original plans called for a simple house which Carrere & Hastings later enlarged to a country estate. In 1931 the house was downsized and it's wings were razed.
