Overview
Long Island s history is filled with fascinating firsts, magnificent mansions and fascinating characters. From Glenn Curtiss, the first pilot to fly a plane on the island, to Earle Ovington, who carried the country s first airmail, the area has been known as the cradle of aviation. Millionaire William K. Vanderbilt s Long Island Motor Parkway, remnants of which still remain, was the nation s first highway. The desolate ruins of an exiled Albanian king s estate lie in the midst of the woods of the Muttontown Preserve. Captain William Kidd, pirate chaser turned pirate, is rumored to have buried treasure on the island. Richard Panchyk reveals the rapidly vanishing traces of Long Island s intriguing history."
