Sands Point


Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujinon XF 18-55mm R OIS Lens – 1/280 @ f/7.1 – ISO 200

This is part of the backyard and mansion at Sands Point Preserve (the whole back yard is way to big to show it covers acres and goes all the way down the cliffs to The Long Island Sound).  There is also a Castle on the grounds.  This was once the home of Henry Clay Frick, better known as the chairman of J.P. Morgans newly formed company, US Steel.  He moved from Pittsburg Pennsylvania to New York and needed a home so he bought this one.  There are countless mansions on the “Gold Coast” of Long Island.  This is now part of the Sands Point Nature Preserve.
