Oyster Bay - Brookville Professional Review and Guide
"It has been more than sixty years since Theodore Roosevelt lived at Sagamore Hill. Since that time the estate has been declared a National Historic Site and has become one of the major attractions of Long Island. It is the high point of this exceptionally scenic ride through the village of Oyster Bay and the adjoining villages of Brookville and Muttontown. The village of Oyster Bay dates from colonial times and retains a decidedly early north shore flavor: a mix of New England colonial architecture, a salt-air environment, and hilly and heavily wooded terrain. Brookville and Muttontown, to the west and south of Oyster Bay, are large wooded tracts dotted with estates and fine old homes. The countryside is covered with stands with towering graceful trees, which during summer make every road a delightfully cool tunnel of mixed sunlight and shade. Because of the beauty of the area, and its challenging terrain, it is a favorite with cyclists. Things to see: Nature Conservancy Preserve, Sagamore Hill, Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Sanctuary, Trailside Museum, Oyster Bay, Planting Fields Arboretum."
