Manhasset Stories, Volumes I and II
Many of the Manhasset Stories in these two volumes come from decades of retelling stories about growing up in Manhasset on the north shore of Long Island with my baby boomer friends. It was a time when the town was just coming into a new era. A new middle class had arrived from the boroughs. The suburbs were a new concept. The high-speed roadways, the shopping centers, and the area parks were new. The families were young and new.
We lived in houses that skirted the estates of Gold Coast wealth with the most important city in the world just a brief train ride away. The new residents of Manhasset had the fire of post WWII in their bellies, Fifth Avenue stores at their fingertips, and an economy that was growing in leaps and bounds.
