Boasting a verdant landscape and miles of silky white beaches, Long Island's North Fork remains a natural paradise. Escaping the urbanization that overspread much of Long Island in the early 1900s, the rural villages survived on farming, fishing, shipbuilding, and maritime trading. Loyal residents have preserved the North Fork's rich heritage and tranquil pace of life. Thus, agriculture still thrives and boats continue to cruise the crystal-clear waters. Long Island's North Fork explores the past through the eyes of those who lived in the rustic countryside. It is a treasury of photographs, many taken by professionals, others from selected family albums and collections.
