St. Josaphat's Monastery Tea House

St. Josaphat's Monastery Tea House, Glen Cove

A little history on the once wealthy estate, and now part of the St. Josaphat's Monastery: "In Lattingtown, one of the wealthiest communities in the country, there is a 118-acre estate whose residents have taken vows of poverty. It is St. Josephat's Monastery, and the Basilian monks who have lived there since 1944 use the 74-room mansion as a place of quiet prayer. The mansion had been owned by industrialist J.E. Aldred until he went bankrupt in 1942. A bank seized it and found no buyers until the order of Basilian monks snapped it up for $75,000, a bargain even then."
