G.V. Whitney's Art Studio
The art studio of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, designed by Delano & Aldrich in 1913 in Old Westbury. The SPLIA book quotes Billy Delano as saying, "Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney asked me to build a studio in the woods at Westbury, where she could get away from Harry's polo-playing friends. She put me in full charge, with no mention of cost. An architect's dream!". The house is a private residence today. Click HERE to see the studio on google earth.
