Whitney-Phipps-Garvan road (originally Whitney-Mortimer-Stow road) is accessed off of Glen Cove road just past Spring Hill (called the 'party road' in the article), though it has long been closed off. There are a handful of service roads that still run through the back portion of the Old Westbury Country Club that I'm sure were original.
