'Mulberry Corner', the residence of Lydig Hoyt, originally built c. 1735 and expanded for Hoyt by Delano & Aldrich c. 1922 in Woodbury. Hoyt was an attorney with the firm of Stewart & Schearer and later practiced with his cousin Francis Appleton. He was a 1906 graduate of Yale where he played football and was for a short while deputy police commissioner under Arthur Woods in NYC. Hoyt died in 1959 at his grandfather's home 'The Point', designed by Calvert Vaux c. 1855 in Staatsburg, NY (which is now owned by the State of NY). 'Mulberry Corner' was demolished sometime between 1953 and 1980 to be replaced by a shopping plaza but click HERE to see where it stood on google earth.
