When her father died in 1918, Alice inherited his Glen Cove mansion, Pembroke.
The estate included a palm court with a cave and a waterfall, stained-glass windows designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, a 70-foot-high water tower with an elevator leading to a teahouse, and an indoor tennis court.
After she sold her father’s mansion on Madison Avenue in New York City, Alice turned her attention to unloading the over-the-top, ostentatious Pembroke. She sold the estate in 1920 to Marcus Loew, who by that time had founded the Loew’a theater chain.
Pembroke was demolished and is now the Legend Yacht and Beach Club. The water tower and stables remain.
