About this title

Synopsis:

In 1906, Sen. William H. Reynolds purchased an abandoned barrier island along the south shore of Long Island and vowed to turn it into a great city. What is now Long Beach, the “City by the Sea,” soon drew visitors who came for its summer resorts, boardwalk, dance pavilions, casino, and luxury hotels. Two world wars, Prohibition, and easy railroad access turned summer residences into year-long homes for thousands eager to live by the seaside and raise families in what has been known as “America’s Healthiest City.” The images of Long Beach reflect the diversity of the city’s architecture, culture, religions, and unique neighborhoods. Photographs show the storied inhabitants and bungalows of the West End, water-lined homes of the canals, the 2.1-mile boardwalk, and long white sand beach.

About the Author:

The Long Beach Historical and Preservation Society was founded in 1980 by Roberta Fiore, the official historian of the City of Long Beach and lifetime trustee of the society. Carole Shahda Geraci is an educator, community activist, and president of the historical society. Dave Roochvarg, historical society trustee, is a bookseller and avid collector of Long Beach historical ephemera.
