    Right in the center of historic Idle Hour is the beautiful Dowling College Oakdale campus, resplendent with Tudor-style buildings and lush gardens. The primary architects of many of the buildings in this area were the Vanderbilt family, who wished to build 'the most beautiful private home in the world'; it was suitably magnificent but tragically burned down in 1899. Another, even more extravagant building was constructed in its place, and this is the house that you can see, to this day, on at Dowling College; restoration on the mansion continues to this day.
