'Mayhasit', the Francis Lyman Hine estate designed by Walker & Gillette c. 1915 in Glen Cove. The Olmsted Brothers did the landscaping between 1915-1923. Hine was the former President of the First National Bank of New York and later the Chairman of the Executive Committee. His 1927 obituary says that Hine "for years had been one of the most powerful leaders in Wall Street. His personal fortune has been estimated at $50,000,000". He was on the board of at least a dozen other prominent companies and a member of many social clubs including Piping Rock, Creek, Union League, Metropolitan, Racquet and Tennis and India House. The house passed through a series of owners following Hine's death including the Fidel School but was stripped of much of it's exterior and converted into apartments when the rest of the estate was developed in 1986.
