THE HOTEL GLENWOOD-HUNGARIA

In the late 19th century, a Hungarian wine importer purchased the Mott family farm in Glenwood Landing and built a hotel complex known as both the Hotel Glenwood-Hungaria and Karatsonyi's Hotel. Overlooking Hempstead Harbor - with several baseball diamonds, a restaurant, a steamship dock, and a beach -  the property was popular with Manhattan day trippers and celebrities and was a common site for company outings. The 27-acre resort was able to accommodate several thousand visitors. The property was eventually sold to LILCO in 1950.
