In 1938, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a house in Great Neck for Benjamin Rebhuhn, a collector and publisher of erotic literature. Although, large, this 3,000 square foor house resembled in most other ways the Usonian type of house that Wright was designing in the 1930s. The house's cruciform plan is hinged around a central hearth structure that contains two separate fireplaces for the living and dining rooms. The exterior is sheathed in cypress board-and-batten siding. The floors are concrete and several full lenght glass doors open out to the garden.
