Old Long Island Turns 5!
Today marks the 5th anniversary of the creation of Old Long Island. Today also marks the 1,500th post and up to now there have been over 415 estates featured, thousands of photos uploaded, over 325,000 visitors and over two million pageviews. On this day I usually remark that I hope I have enough material to keep Old Long Island going for another five years. While I'm not entirely sure another five years of material even exists out there I do pledge to continue posting photos and history for as long as I have something new. Thanks as always to anyone who has ever sent me an email, left a comment or shared some photos or a story. That's the gasoline that keeps this car running. Above, a Christmas and New Years card from 'Wheatly', the E.D. Morgan III estate designed by McKim, Mead & White between 1890-1900 in Old Westbury.
