Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
OK -- I'll ask:* What is that under the tree in the foreground? I can't make it out.* What was most likely the purpose of the modest wooden building tucked under the trees to the right? On Bing there is a different structure there.The modest wooden building facing that massive stone stable reminds me of the story a friend tells about her grandmother marrying an Englishman: As they approached his family's home she admired the house ... only to learn that was the gatehouse.
Probably where a few Gould employees would be stationed dressed up as huntsmen, serfs or a shepardess tending their flock or sowing crops to complete the lord of the manor look of the estate.I presume kennel since it is visible from the great lawn and main house.
