July 4th, Historic North Fork, Long Island

© Miranda Gatewood-4739Independence Day has been celebrated on eastern Long Island’s historic North Fork a bit longer than other locales like Suburban Nassau County. Yet even Nassau County eschewed its potato fields, farms and pumpkin patches as recently as the 1940s and ’50s to make way for the post-war baby boom development. Arrowheads from Long Island’s original dwellers can still be found there. ♠
