Everyone lucky enough to live on Long Island already knows that it’s like nowhere else in the world. From lighthouses and a one-hundred-year-old carousel to World War II camps and missile sites, Long Island native Ralph Brady reveals the secrets to what makes this little-big island so special with a tour of some of Nassau and Suffolk’s most historic locations. Walt Whitman, William Vanderbilt, Theodore Roosevelt and many others occupied remarkable homes around the island. Charles Lindbergh made his historic flight to France from what is now a shopping mall. For many years, a Long Island factory gave the world the game of Scrabble. Even the waters teem with history, with the modern submarine making its start off the coast. Come explore these and other settings from Long Island’s past.

About the Author:

Ralph Brady is a retired executive from the transportation industry, with more than twenty-five years of experience owning and operating a nationally known logistics consulting company. He is married with three children and five grandsons, soon to be joined by a new grandchild in July 2012. Ralph and his wife, Madeline, have been residents of Long Island for more than forty years and enjoy both leisure and adventure travel. This has taken them to China and countries throughout Europe and the Caribbean and, in Ralph’s case, to the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania as well. While some might consider it fulfillment of a “bucket list,” Ralph has included skydiving, SCUBA diving, race car driving, glider piloting and ballooning in his list of adventures. He holds a second-degree black belt in Okinawan karate and has completed more than twenty full marathon road races. His affiliation with The History Press in publishing this book has allowed him to realize another one of his life’s dreams.
