Old Long Island Turns 2!

Today is the second anniversary of the creation of Old Long Island. After all this time there have been 663 posts, 195 estates featured, a few thousand pictures uploaded, about 50,000 visitors and almost 300,000 page views. So I hope you have enjoyed it and I hope I have enough material to continue for at least another 2 years. Above is the Lightship Nantucket (LV-112) docked in Oyster Bay Harbor. It was in use from 1936 to 1983, shining light on the shoals on Nantucket. Now it sits in the Harbor awaiting its somewhat unknown future. Click HERE to see the Lightship Nantucket on google earth.
