“Experience Port Washington” will take you on some unexpected journeys through this scenic peninsula on the North Shore of Long Island, only fifteen miles as the crow flies from the great metropolis, New York City.
This blog was conceived by Dan Chuzmir, audio engineer, and Elly Shodell, historian and librarian. “Experience Port Washington” is based on the extensive archival and oral history collections housed at the Port Washington Public Library, in Nassau County, New York. It brings original historical sources to students, teachers, researchers, and interested community members. We welcome your comments, asides, additions, corrections and emendations
