Hidden History of Long Island

Long Island’s history is filled with fascinating firsts, magnificent mansions, and spectacular sports. Much of the island’s storied past was set into motion by the arrival of glaciers during the last Ice Age, which created the rolling hills and waterfront vistas that were ideal for vast estates, and the flat expanse to its south that was ideal for everything from farming and horse racing to military encampments and some of the country’s earliest and most historic airplane flights. In this book, Author and historian Richard Panchyk reveals the rapidly vanishing remaining glimpses of Long Island’s intriguing hidden history.
