Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
Thanks for all you have done over the years. Incredible effort and thoroughly enjoyable. Not only your efforts but also many of the other knowledgeable people that have left comments.
Zach, I am so glad you are back from your vacation. We missed you.You have the greatest historic website around. I love it.Robert in Temple Terrace, Florida
Ditto unknown and anon's comments Zach
you have done a wonderful job in every way imaginable. i especially appreciate how much you have broadened the boundaries of what great houses where built on Long Island. while was i already was aware via family history that was a mere primer compared to your work. take a good long break, you have earned , your site is more than good, it is the best
Agreed - I was reminded how much I enjoy your site when, each day these last couple of weeks, I'd clicked over only to find it hadn't been updated. Time to start reposting, or engage an intern!In all seriousness, many thanks for putting together such a comprehensive collection.
Thank you all. And I suppose you could say everyone out there who reads this is an intern of sorts...so if anyone has anything worth posting that we haven't seen please don't hesitate to email me. I've been sent lots in the past, much of which I have tried to post, but I have no doubt I have missed things. Going back through 2,000+ emails at this point is just too time consuming though. One thing is certain...there are 1,946 posts as of today (July 7) and I will not stop until I get to at least 2,000.
From Ecuador your neighbor forever grateful your treasure trove. U now inducted Rock Star Hall of Fame! B
Zach , your the best. I appreciate all your fine work.Thank You!!!
OLI is one of if not the best source for local architectural, societal and cultural history from the estate era of Long Island. It's value as an educational and preservation resource is unmatched. As we watch Long Island's continued urbanization and continued losses of important historical structures and landscapes, (i.e., Inisfada due to close minded North Hills village trustees, Dormer House due to fire, Winfield Hall due to perpetual neglect, Groomsbridge due to unchecked over development and the Main Maid Inn due to the inaction and weakness of the current Oyster Bay Town Board) OLI only becomes more valuable to future generations. archibuff
Please keep up the good work. Your posts are most well-informed and composed, and treasured by this reader.Thank you.Have a nice summer.
zach is incredible. i have enjoyed and loved this site ever since i found it many years ago and the added icing on the eaves is the amount of expertise that comes out in the comments eg Half Pudding Half Sauce altho where his encyclopedic knowledge comes from i still haven't figured out. i say take a break but don't abandon the faithful altogether. we're rooting for you.
