Gold Coast Glamour

A part of a 160 acre property, this enchanting garden is a part of the former estate belonging to John Shaffer Phipps an heir to a US Steel fortune, now better known as Old Westbury Gardens. Together with Westbury House, a Charles II style mansion, it was completed in 1906 and now open to the public and is located in Old Westbury in Nassau County on Long Island, New York.
The property has been used as a film location for many movies including Love Story way back in 1970 and more recently The Manchurian Candidate and American Gangster.
I picked this photo for the blog today also to wish the lady by the fountain, my beautiful and ever tolerant wife Julie, a very happy birthday!
