Dateline: Long Island (1964)

On behalf of the Prelinger Archives, this interesting 28 minute documentary was uploaded to YouTube. This film shows amazing images of Long Island's past that maybe some of you will remember seeing in person. I can only imagine Long Island looking as quaint as it does in many of the scenes of this film.


The point of this film is largely a fluff piece to talk about the history of Newsday, how it began and how it became an important part Long Islander's life. As the YouTube description says, "...this film is full of abundantly wholesome American images, from farms to bowling to riflery."
