New from Arcadia Publishing and local authors Ellen and Sargent Russell is Roslyn in the popular Images of America series, featuring over 200 vintage images.
In the 1840s, the first wave of city people came to Roslyn, attracted by the town’s picturesque scenery. Later in the 19th century, the Long Island Rail Road made the area appealing to the very wealthy, who turned the rolling north shore of Long Island into the Gold Coast. The great estates employed local residents, and their owners gave the village handsome buildings that still survive today.
The Russells share “this book offers a glimpse of the people and places of a special town on Long Island Sound whose roots—and buildings—go back to 17th century Dutch times.”
