In 1840, residents chose the name Amityville because it described their view of themselves and the community. "The friendly village," over the next 100 years, is portrayed in the historical photographs and narrative of Amityville. Located on Long Island's south shore, the village developed as a summer resort, with families, celebrities, and several grand hotels. Eventually many summer visitors stayed and became residents.
