Twenty-seven and eight-tenths miles out from New York City; population, 530. This comparatively new and enterprising village lies at the beginning of the famous Long Island pine belt, which together with the fact that it is nearly 150 feet above sea level, with neither lake nor fresh water springs in the immediate vicinity, makes it particularly healthful. This has induced a large number of well-to-do people having their business places in the city to build all year round home here, and commute. The village has grown quite rapidly the past few years, and its immediate future seems to be bright. The Long Island Motor Parkway winds its way among the hills and woods a little to the north and east of the station. The three school districts employ four teachers, presiding over about 100 students. LONG ISLAND TODAY by Frederick Ruther
