Syosset People and Places Description

The hamlet of Syosset, located on Long Island’s North Shore, was settled by the Dutch and English in 1648 and was known as Eastwoods. It was not until 1854, when the Long Island Rail Road named its new stop, that the hamlet was given the name Syosset. The presence of the railroad led to a continued population expansion as local farmers prospered and newcomers discovered and joined the desirable community. By the last half of the 20th century, the excellence of Syosset’s schools drew new residents eager to raise their children around a solid education. Through rare photographs and postcards, Syosset People and Places presents the residents, homes, businesses, and schools that have shaped this historic community.
