'The Sunnyside', the Samuel T. Shaw estate designed by Frederick R. Hirsh c. 1906 on Centre Island. Shaw was a co-owner of the Grand Union Hotel in New York City and a noted collector of American art. The estate was subsequently owned by George E. Brightson who named it 'Harbor Point' and later by Edward Carl Oelsner Sr. who renamed it 'Seacroft'. Click HERE to see 'The Sunnyside' on google earth and HERE on bing.
