from @vintagenewsday - Did you know--Long Island once had five ski areas?! Odd, right? Since we're usually known for having a relatively flat landscape. In this 1968 @newsday photo, skiers ascend a slope in Farmingville using a t-bar lift. The Bald Hill Ski Bowl ended up closing in 1980 but you might know it by its current incarnation: the Pennysaver Amphitheater at Bald Hill.

from @vintagenewsday - On this day in 1884, diplomat, and activist and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York, NY. Here, Roosevelt visits the Mitchel Field Hospital in Uniondale, NY on October 2, 1944. “Paying her second visit to Nassau in four months, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, the gracious and indefatigable First Lady of the Land, swept into this air base yesterday to personally greet hundreds of hospitalized war casualties,” wrote Newsday reporter Helen Dudar.

SAG HARBOR
What a way to spend the day. Long Island is full of this little treasure towns that have not changed and I hope they never do. 
Sag Harbor is about three fifths in Southampton and two fifths in East Hampton. The dividing line is Division Street which becomes Town Line Road just south of the village. .

Such a great cause, Keep our beaches clean.
from @coastalsteward_li 
We’re celebrating International Coastal Cleanup Day this weekend - come out this Saturday the 29th to help keep our coastlines free from debris! 
Long Island has some of the nicest beaches in the world, it’s what draws so many of us to live here. Not only that, our coast is home to many marine mammals and creatures, and it’s up to us to keep our coasts clean and healthy!

Farmingdale Ny
Before Aviation History Month flies away, here’s a piece of Long Island’s vast aviation past. Crew chief Harold Baldwin of Amityville stands on a ladder while he makes modifications to a F-105 Thunderjet fighter bomber at Republic Aircraft Corp. in Farmingdale in this 1964 @Newsday photo. Earlier that year the Air Force began phasing out the warplane following 18 major accidents. The aircraft tweaked by Mr. Baldwin was one of the last F-105’s left at Republic Aircraft Corp.

Syosset Ny
Muttontown Preserve 
Very interesting trail full of history.
The first monarch of Albania fled during the Italian invasion and later purchased a now crumbling #LongIsland mansion for the alleged sum of $100,000. No check was necessary, he ponied up #rubies and #diamonds and thus stirred up decade old rumors of hidden treasure on the property. #Zog also holds the esteemed Guinness World Record of consuming the most cigarettes in a single day topping out at 225 per day. So we’re guessing he wasn’t much of a #hiker Today you can head out and wind past his garden walls, remains of his #mansion, and other jewels on the grounds including the #ChelseaMansion You’ll also find wild #violet #appletrees #woodlands and #ponds stretching across Long Island’s #largestnaturepreserve 
How to get there: Take the #LIRR out of Penn Station to the Syosset stop. Once you arrive, catch a cab or take a 3 1/2 mile #bikeride to #Muttontown #Preserve

Smithtown, Ny
Blydenburgh County Park
Hike five miles around Long Island’s second largest lake, with plenty of other attractions, including a historical mill district.
East of Old Willets Path, this Suffolk County park has had a long history with very few owners. In 1798 Isaac Blydenburgh, seeing a good business opportunity, joined with some Smith relatives to buy the 588-acre parcel. They put in the dam that created the pond and erected grist-, saw-, and fulling mills, which flourished for a long time. Blydenburgh became the sole owner in 1801, erected the present house in 1821, and passed the property on to his heirs. In 1938 the property left the family to become David Weld’s estate, and he in turn sold it to the county in 1968. The park is mostly woodland with swamps and fields, and is home to Stump Pond, which we understand is second in size on Long Island only to Lake Ronkonkoma. The pond is long and irregularly shaped, somewhat like a boot with a pointed toe. No swimming is permitted, but rowboats are available, so it is a popular fishing place as well as campground. A number of trails and dirt roads make for easy walking; you’ll also encounter horseback riders." #smithtown #suffolkcounty #longisland #ourlongisland #purlongisland #longislandtrails #trails #trailseason #horsebacktrails #dogfriendly #blydenburgh #blydenburghpark

Fire Island, Long Island, Ny
On Sept. 2, 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. waves from the ferry as he approaches Seaview on Fire Island to discuss the war in Vietnam and racial issues at a rally held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Morris of Kelp Street. A mostly-white crowd of about 750 people gathered and approximately $5,000 was raised for the American Institute on Nonviolence, an organization founded with funds from Rev. Dr. King’s Nobel Prize award. Prior to the rally, Rev. Dr. King spoke to a smaller gathering of 60 people at a $100-a-couple cocktail party in Ocean Bay Park. During the rally King spoke of nonviolence saying, “The response to a riot by whites is often a repressive one. Riots tend to intensify the fear while relieving the guilt of so many whites. We must escalate nonviolent. We must dislocate without destroying.” Citing ill-paying jobs and unemployment in the Black community he said, “It’s cruel to just say to a bootless man that he out to lift himself by his own bootstraps.” (Photos: Stan Wolfson)

Commack Ny
Shopping Center Stands on the Site of a Former Airfield
Commack was once the home of an army airfield.
On the northeast corner of Larkfield Road and Jericho Turnpike stands the Home Depot shopping center. Nowadays the site is filled with local shoppers, but from 1918 to 1919 it was home to an aerial squadron of the U.S. Army Air Service.
On Aug. 16, 1918, Harris said during mock air combat, two soldiers from Brindley died when the wing of their Jenny crumbled. The plane crash occurred on Havemeyer Lane just east of Oakley Place.
The area was affected by having an airfield nearby. Harris said Shea told him that Commack establishments within five miles of Brindley couldn’t sell alcohol. Also, the arrival of the airfield brought electricity to the local area since Brindley needed power lines.

Long Island Ny
Lighthouses
At nearly 120 miles in length, Long Island holds some of the most beautiful lighthouses in the United States, including quite a few that welcome visitors to climb to their perches to enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Other Long Island lighthouses are accessible via private tours and boat trips.
Long Island is home to over 25 New York lighthouses, each with a history and story of its own.
Perhaps one of the most famous New York lighthouses is Montauk Point lighthouse, commissioned by #GeorgeWashington in 1796. It is one of three  #LongIslandlighthouses that permit a climb to the top of the tower, along with #FireIslandLighthouse and #HortonPoint.

Massapequa Ny
MASSAPEQUA PRESERVE
Located in the heart of Massapequa, the preserve is one of the most #beautifulpark in the area. Perfect for biking it rides along a stream surrounded by trees and gardens. The preserve is officially named The Peter J. Schmitt #Massapequa Preserve and is made up of 432 acres. It contains a bike trail, #hikinglongisland trail via the #Greenbelt, as well as fishing and nature walks.
By most accounts, it is considered one of the most beautiful areas in #NassauCounty and one of the most hidden.  It’s right in the middle of Massapequa but being inside feels like you’re in the middle of the forest. The trail is well known for being one of the few places in Nassau County that you can actually feel like an escape from the surrounding suburban sprawl.
In addition, it’s a great path to traverse #LongIsland and go from the #LongIslandExpressway in the North down to #MassapequaPreserve and then to bike further down to #CedarBeach and go all the way down to the ocean.
