    Notes 
    • Notes on Robert Coles House: The original home of Robert Coles is standing today as the east wing of the residence at 34 The Place. This tiny wing of the present dwelling is quite dwarfed by the more pretentious wings that have been added by subsequent residents. It is the oldest place of residence now standing in Glen Cove. until the spring of 1945 there stood a large and much weather-beaten black locust (Robina pseudocacia), in front of the house. This ancient tree was one of several brought to Long Island by Captain John Sands of Cow Neck shortly after the settlement of Musketa Cove. This was probably the first introduction of that species of locust to Long Island, although today it is very plentiful along the north shore.
