A close look at the Oceanside community whose history begins with the history of Long Island.

Captured in these images and words written by author and Oceanside native Richard Woods is the south shore town that was once one of the largest oyster-producing communities in the world. It is a place that, over the years, has attracted farmers, baymen, middle-class families, and millionaires. It has also drawn more than its share of visitors to St. Anthony's underground church, Beall's Zoo, the Roadside Rest, and Nathan's Famous Restaurant.

About the Author
Woods, Richard: - The author, Richard Woods, grew up in Oceanside and has taught and coached here for more than two decades. For Oceanside, he selected stunning photographs from library archives, the school district, and private collections. He combined these images, dating from the late 1800s to the 1960s, with historical detail, a touch of wit, and much warmth to make Oceanside a fitting tribute to a deserving community.
