The exterior looked better with shutters. But I like the elk statue in front; guessing it would eventually be donated for its metal to a war effort. Anyone know for sure?

Not 100% sure, but that Elk statue may be the same that now stands ontop of the Elk Club in Lynbrook.

Thanks to both Anons -- I also think it's the same statue. As I've said before -- you can't buy the kind of research that shows up here on a regular basis.
