Format: Paperback
This book of Great Neck is a photographic and literary keepsake for any Long-Islander, Great Neck-ophile or Nostalgic/Modern day traveler.Chock-full of well researched historical information,fascinating anecdotal trivia and the absolute cutting edge in commercial photgraphy.This high-tech photography should become prototypes for this field.But not only is it a commercial success but a darn-good read.It is a literary and visual trip back to that romantic world of the Fitzgeralds and the Hollywood Legendaries and to primative times in this modern near-utopian community.Buy this book for your coffee table and take it with you for a visit to Great Neck-you will love both.

Most books of this nature have a temporary, touristy feel to them. TM Design's Great Neck book, however, is a well-crafted, gorgeously laid out piece, with fantastic attention to detail. Whether you've lived in Great Neck, visited there, or are simply curious about some fascinating Long Island history, you'll find this book truly interesting. Exhaustively researched, this treasure trove of information and stories feels like a walk through time, complete with beautiful photographs.

Format: Paperback
I loved browsing through the book and finding little gems and tidbits about Great Neck in the past that I didn't know about. The greatest fun is in the details, from Ann Hutchinson to Chrysler, to Eddie Cantor, we are presented with a panoply of actors and scenes that all add up to a fascinating history. The development of the various churches and synagogues, as different groups moved into the area, was especially interesting to me. And the photos are wonderful. As a long time resident, I have often flinched at the image many people have of my town as a place that represents the quintessential material culture at its worst. It is such a pleasure to have a book that shows how wrong those assumptions are, and that lays out the real diversity and excitement of this multi-cultural and multi-dimensional place. I wish everyone who ever made nasty comments about Great Neck would have a copy sent to him/her. The author and editor did a great job.

Format: Paperback
The Ultimate Book of Great Neck is a beautifully designed and exceptionally well-written guide book to this most interesting town on the Gold Coast of Long Island.
As this book points out, Great Neck has always been home to many stars and celebrities, movers and shakers. Among them were entertainers like W.C. Fields and Groucho Marx, the silent screen star Thomas Meighan and his neighbor, the automotive tycoon Walter Chrysler. Not only do we learn their stories, the book also includes photographs of their magnicifent homes, including that of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who used Great Neck as the setting for "The Great Gatsby," and the composer of the beloved song, "Yankee Doodle Dandy," George M. Cohan.
Not all suburbs are equal. Great Neck is an exceptional one. This book is a must read and a good read. And a quite compelling reason for Great Neck to be a must see for any visitor to the New York metropolitan area.

Format: Paperback
Amazing historic details written in a most readable style,makes exploring the past intriguing. The development of this community and the great variety of housing, parks, schools and cultural opportunities makes this suburban yet urban center very inviting. No wonder so many talented and creative people have sought to live there. In addition to the text, the collection of photographs is superb. A beautifully written and designed book. Great Neck should be very proud to blow its own horn!
