I've been living half a lifetime on Long Island ever since 1969 and always had an eye, (and ear & taste), for a Long Island I never knew....Books such as the one I bought has given me so much pleasure that I had to buy others about this beautiful Island of ours. I have the proverbial, "voracious appetite", for everything that is Long Island. My late wife and I travelled extensively across this beautiful expanse in our younger days....Reading stories, whether legend or real and then have them heard from the mouths of others, makes me want to know more....It sure has me eager to travel and see the sights that once were alive....I remember seeing the first vineyards on the North Shore so many moons ago, never imagining what great wine country that neck of the woods would turn out to be. If anyone wants to know about the history of LI, try the cemeteries also. They are like books. They speak volumes. Thank you for making these wonderful missives, including this one, available to people like me.
Love this book!2013/10/14
I grow up on long Island and this book brought back some many memories. Long Island is such a beautiful place to live. I had to move from the island and I miss it so much.
