'Matinecock Point', the J.P. Morgan Jr. estate designed by Christopher Grant LaFarge c. 1913 on East Island in Glen Cove. Morgan was partner in J.P. Morgan and Co., director and chairman of the board of United States Steel Corp., and vice-president of the board of the Museum of Natural History in NYC among many other things. The house was demolished in 1980 after the surrounding property had been subdivided. Click HERE, HERE and HERE for more on 'Matinecock Point'. Click HERE to see where the estate stood on google earth.
