Eisenhower Park is one of Long Island’s most beloved and well-known attractions. Larger than New York City’s Central Park, the park is located on what was once the flat, wide open grassland known as the Hempstead Plains, which was the largest stretch of prairie east of the Mississippi River. This book offers a visual journey through the park's history, from its early days as the Salisbury Golf Links to its conversion into a park in the 1940s, and its continued growth through the present day, highlighting some of the key moments, famous visitors, and quirky places within the park in fascinating vintage and current images.

RICHARD PANCHYK knew he wanted to be a writer by the time he was seven years old. He sold his first “book,” a four-page handwritten trivia booklet written on a folded piece of loose-leaf paper in runny blue ballpoint pen, to a third-grade classmate for a nickel. A native of Elmhurst, Queens, Richard attended Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, where a class on the fascinating history of New York ignited his interest in the area. He has published a total of thirty-four books, including nine titles on New York City and six on Long Island.
