The logo for the Great Neck Lodge...the C looks like a G.

The porte-cochere.

In 1911, the Great Neck Lodge was the western terminus protected by a fence across the Motor Parkway.

A lantern was hanging from the fence.

The inside toll gate. Note the poster, likely providing toll rates.

The outside toll gate.

Steve Lucas spotted this girl in the photo.

Hello Howard,
Great photo of the lodge. If you look closely, there appears to be a child (young girl?)leaning against the wall on the right side. Is this possible and who might it be?

Great catch. See above.

Could the little girl on the side of the lodge be Ann Grego who died at an old age about 1990? She was the daughter of a worker for Vanderbilt who bought the lodge in 1938. She had 2 daughters who I believe live on Long Island.
