The next virtual via Zoom meeting/program:

Garden City Apostle House

Garden City Apostle House

Sunday, October 25, 2020, 2:00 p.m.
(Log-ins for this virtual Zoom meeting will be admitted starting at 1:45 p.m.)
N.C.H.S. Annual Meeting, and a program on “Long Island’s Classic Suburbs: Garden City and Levittown”
Paul van Wie, Molloy College

Program: Garden City and Levittown are two famous landmarks in the history of suburban America. Located just a few miles apart on what was once the Hempstead Plains, the two communities were founded in different centuries, under different circumstances, and for different reasons. Despite their differences in origin and subsequent development, the two communities share some underlying similarities. This presentation will explore some of those similarities and differences, and in the process examine some interesting aspects of the American and Long Island suburban experience. You may remember that Dr. van Wie spoke to our Historical Society some years ago on “Nineteenth-Century German Settlements on Long Island.”
