Owners of the Green Family house in West Sayville

The Green Family house in West Sayville, owned by Stuart and Henle Cantor, was a pit stop for President George Washington during his visit to Long Island in 1790, when the home was owned by the Green family, some of the first settlers of West Sayville. The Cantors are selling the 5,400-square-foot home for almost $1.4 million. They said they want to move to Florida. Videojournalist: Joseph D. Sullivan (Oct. 18, 2012)
