When 'Waldene' Was For Sale
A brochure advertising 'Waldene', the Walter G. Oakman estate designed by Grosvenor Atterbury c. 1900 in Roslyn (the SPLIA book calls the house 'Oakdene'). Oakman was chairman of the board of the Guaranty Trust Company until his resignation in 1920. He was also president of the Hudson Companies which built train tubes under the Hudson River. The house is no longer standing but would have satHERE.
