I can sit with this book and daydream about my wonderful childhood in the still-glorious 60's and 70's when Ronkonkoma was still a nice mix of rural charm and suburbia, and yet only 60 miles from NYC. My mother and I would walk to the lake on hot summer days; passing many of the remnants of Ronkonkoma's hey-day; and I'd even play on the ruins of the pavillians at the beach. I can even see my childhood home in several of the photographs- which is the first opportunity in my life I've had the pleasure to see what my former home and neighborhood looked like prior to myself having lived there!
The author's employment of several of James Mooney's wonderful aerial photographs from the 50's and 60's was a natural! One could only wish he would have used more of them, as nothing captures the essence of the place like those photographs! (Some of you may remember, back when Robin's Hardware was still extant, the owner, Georgie Erotakis(sp?) had a bunch of Mr. Mooney's photographs displayed along his counter. It was such a treat just to go in there to buy a nut or bolt, and spend an hour looking at the photos and talking to George and his wife!Read more ›
