Demolition by Neglect?
At some point over the last few months the wall at 'Spring Hill' in Old Westbury suffered a substantial but partial collapse. The property, purchased from the Phipps family in 2004, has been subdivided and I had been led to believe the wall was to be restored (as long ago as 2008). Nothing ever happened and it slowly deteriorated year after year until this most recent event occurred. I do not know what the intention is in regards to the future of the wall but if the last couple of years are any indication the future does not look good. Click HERE to see the wall in better days.
