'The Chimneys', the Howard Crosby Brokaw estate designed by Horace Trumbauer c. 1916 in Brookville. Brokaw inherited Brokaw Brothers, a clothing company, upon his father Isaac V. Brokaw's death. During World War I Brokaw served as the head of the American Red Cross in New York. His brother Irving lived at 'Frost Mill Lodge' in Mill Neck. Brokaw died in 1960 and the same year the estate was purchased by the Muttontown Golf and Country Club. Click HERE to see 'The Chimneys' on google earth and HERE on bing.
