Here's the history of every community in Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens -- from Astoria to Yaphank and every town in between -- nearly 300 stories and over 350 photos. Relive the days when:
-- Al Capone and Annie Oakley vacationed in Amityville
-- Benedict Arnold led British troops through Fresh Meadows
-- Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig played baseball in Lindenhurst

That's not all! Share the recollections of celebrities like Mariah Carey and Jerry Seinfeld who grew up in our hometowns and learn why:
-- Long Beach still feels like home to Billy Crystal
-- A six-year-old Rosie O'Donnell set her sights on stardom in Westbury
-- Ray Romano's heart still belongs to Queens

Home Town Long Island is sure to touch the hearts of all who call Long Island home. And it has tremendous local Long Island appeal for retailers -- and makes a great fundraising book, or an exceptional corporate or premium gift.
