Program Description

Event Details

Route 25A runs from the very western part of Long Island in Queens all the way to its terminus in Calverton. Along the way, this often scenic, sometimes bustling, thoroughfare has different names (Northern Boulevard, Main Street, and Fort Salonga Rd. to name a few) but regardless of the name or the geography, Route 25A is very much a part of the fabric of life on Long Island. In this fascinating program, Eco-Photo Explorers will explore the historic past of Route 25A, and examine its special place in the lives of all Long Islanders through photographs and stories. Join us for a fast-paced tour of Long Island’s Country Road and learn how it has contributed to the history and culture of Long Island.  

This program is part of the Library's celebration of the Summer Reading Theme 'All Together Now.'  The historic roadways of Long Island is a topic we all can relate to.
