Gold Coast Memories
Gold Coast Memories is dedicated to collecting and preserving our community’s heritage and making it available to the public online. Our growing collection of digitized postcards photographs, documents and artwork is available for viewing on this website and as part of the Long Island Memories project.
In 2010, the Gold Coast Public Library joined Long Island Memories, the digitization initiative sponsored by the Long Island Libraries Resources Council. The goal of Long Island Memories is to provide the people of Long Island with access to a visual and oral record of Long Island's history, culture, government and industry.
We hope you enjoy exploring this collection and discovering the history of our unique home.
Glenwood Landing c 1915
From the New York Times [New York, N.Y] 22 Apr 1900: 22:
There is good fishing just now at Glenwood Landing, which can be reached by the Oyster Bay
Branch of the Long Island Railroad. The excursion fare is $1, and fishing boats may be had for
50 cents a day. Sand worms are 10 cents a dozen, clams, 25 cents a peck, and later on, when the
black fish commence biting, riddlers may be had for 20 cents a quart, so it will not be necessary
for the fisherman to take his bait with him.

from 1851- 2007, accessible to Gold Coast cardholders through the library’s website (Proquest).
