In 1914, Vanderbilt inherited a spacious mansion located at 640 Fifth Avenue in New York City from his uncle George Washington Vanderbilt II . Built in 1880 by William Henry Vanderbilt , the mansion was originally one of two sharing that block designed with identical exteriors and together known as the "Twin Mansions." It was to be his permanent residence for the rest of his life, because although he sold the mansion in 1940 to members of the Astor family , he and his family retained occupancy of the house for three years after his death in 1942. Neily's wife Grace lived there until 1944, when she moved into the William Starr Miller House at 1048 Fifth Avenue which still stands today as the Neue Galerie .

Hill created the Great Northern Railway Company and the St. Paul, Minneapolis, & Manitoba became a part of it. In 1893 it reached the Puget Sound at Everett, Washington. During that same year, a panic put the Santa Fe and Union Pacific in receivership. The Northern Pacific was put into a worse situation. Hill's Great Northern was the only railroad in the Pacific to remain in good condition through the panic. Hill made an agreement to take over the Northern Pacific Railroad with Edward Tuck and Bank of Montreal associate Lord Mount Stephen. A Great Northern stockholder objected using the Minnesota law prohibiting the combining of parallel and competing railroads. The agreement was stopped. Hill soon got around it though by having his associates help in buying Northern Pacific stock as individuals instead of as a company. (27) The plan succeeded and the Northern Pacific became part of the Great Northern in 1896. (28) The Great Northern now became known as the Hill Lines by most people living in the West. (29)
