Jay was a lawyer and businessman, the grandson of a shoemaker, and the son of Henry Phipps Jr., who landed a job as an office boy to Andrew Carnegie and eventually became his partner at Carnegie Steel Company.

    Old Westbury Gardens, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the former home of John S. Phipps, his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps and their four children. Completed in by the English designer, George A. Crawley, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion is nestled amid acres of formal gardens, landscaped grounds, woodlands, ponds and lakes. Old Westbury Gardens, one of Long Island New York’s Gold Coast treasures, was once the estate of John Shaffer Phipps. This stately Charles II-style mansion was built in fulfillment of a promise by Phipps to his English fiancée that he would build her a home on US soil very much like her family estate in Battle Abbey, UK.
