Nassau County, NY - April 16, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that the late Captain Harry Frank Guggenheim’s summer residence, Falaise, opens for the season on Saturday, May 24th. 2014 marks 90 years since the completion of Falaise.

This elegant mansion, built in the style of a 13thcentury Norman manor, is one of the few remaining great estates that once comprised Long Island’s Gold Coast. It is furnished with historic artifacts, many from the 16th and 17th centuries. They include Renaissance wood carvings, sculptures, rugs, paintings and tapestries. These and other furnishings recall Captain Guggenheim’s military career, passion for aviation, public service, interest in thoroughbred horse racing and long friendships with Charles A. Lindbergh and Dr. Robert H. Goddard, among others.

At a private tour just prior to the official public opening in 1973, Charles A. Lindbergh was quoted that he considered Falaise, “One of the most beautiful buildings in the world.”

Falaise, located on the Sands Point Preserve, 127 Middle Neck Road, Sands Point NY 11050, is open for tours May 24th through November23rd, Thursdays through Sundays. The tour bus leaves Castlegould at 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm. Tours, conducted by volunteer docents, are approximately one hour. Admission is $10 per person.
