Henry Phipps estate designed by Horace Trumbauer c. 1916 in Lake Success. Phipps was a partner and co-founder of Carnegie Steel, a noted philanthropist and patriarch of the Phipps family. All his children resided in the Old Westbury vicinity; Jay at 'Westbury House', Hal at 'Spring Hill', Howard at 'Erchless', Amy at 'Templeton' and Helen at 'Knole'. Today the residence is the administration building for the Great Neck School District. Click HERE to see 'Bonnie Blink' on google earth and HERE on bing. Photo from the Aiglon Archives.
