Lying ninety miles east of Manhattan and bordered by both Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay, Greenport has long been known as a boater's paradise. Part of the town of Southold, this Long Island beach town is noted for its lively mix of ethnicities and its contrasts-old-time New England rectitude giving way to a growing artistic community. In stunning photographs, Greenport portrays this place of hearty good spirits, with its legacy of fast boats and rumrunners, hardworking artisans and their grateful descendants, and notable independent figures such as Kofi Annan, and three-time America's Cup winner George Monsell.

Greenport: The Right Place at the Wrong Time, a historical tale by Roselle Borrelli, is a story about a house, a family, a builder, and some of the people who lived in the village of Greenport from approximately 1830s to early 1900s. It is a true historical account of the happenings in Greenport based mostly on a compilation of facts in the local historical newspapers. With all the facts in order, the story weaves its tale based on the author’s own unique, odd, and paranormal experiences within the home. How the facts come to unravel their tale is all part of the investigation into the lives of Andrew J. Wiggins and Orange H. Cleaves. These two important men of Greenport Village, although having lived nearly 150 years ago, come to life on the pages of the book. The two men’s lives become revealed to the author who happens to be the owner of the house where it all took place. The Right Place at The Wrong Time describes the author’s sensation of being the perfect person to live in the house, but understands that she might have arrived late, maybe 150 years late. That being said, the story tells a tale of odd occurrences, leads, and coincidences that will have you convinced there might just be something else going on than that which meets the eye.

Located on the north fork of eastern Long Island, Greenport is a storied place. Its history springs from its environs: the rich soil of the inlands, the abundant surrounding waters, and a deepwater port for its harbor. Greenport is the only incorporated village in the Town of Southold. Over time, it has served as an important whaling, menhaden, oystering, rum-running, and shipping port. In 1827, Main Street was established, and Greenport continued to bloom. Local stores supplied provisions for the maritime industries and the many glorious hotels and restaurants of the area. The Long Island Rail Road, the original connection for steamships to the New England coast, brought commerce to the area. Greenport shares photographs of a community admired for its scenery and rich maritime history.

Author John Sullivan describes himself as an underachiever, much more driven by the fear of failure than the urge to succeed. Growing up in Greenport, New York, there were neither great expectations nor dire predictions as to how he would turn out. But many have been pleasantly surprised at his success; none more so than Sullivan himself. In Raised by a Village, he offers both a thank you and tribute to the people of Greenport who helped him survive a challenging childhood and attain a degree of success Sullivan never dreamed possible as a child. This memoir describes a host of challenges including a lack of financial resources, a paucity of nutritious food, substandard housing, poor hygiene, insufficient medical/dental care, and negligent, but very loving, parental care. Raised by a Village presents an up-close and personal picture of who Sullivan was and how he became the man he is today, showing he was not only was raised by a village but raised well.

Paddling Long Island is the only book on the market to depict routes and destinations across the whole of Long Island and the New York City area. And it showcases 50 of the very best. It is a diverse selection, too. After all, according to skill level, weather, personal mood, and other factors, a paddler may want open, fast water one day, but a quiet, protected experience at another time, and something in-between later on. It’s all here, from New York City to the far eastern tip of Long Island’s Montauk Point. What’s more, the book’s guidance and language are geared to wide-ranging skill levels: the novice will be enlightened and encouraged, and the seasoned kayaker or canoeist will be engaged and engrossed. That is because the author’s intimate, lifelong knowledge of the area’s waterways shines in his descriptions of natural and social histories, humorous stories, personal anecdotes, and beautiful black-and-white photographs. In addition, the author provides contact information on local paddling clubs, outfitters, and Internet links. And a final extensive section on personal safety, boat and equipment preparedness, and related topics makes this book an invaluable tool.

Chartered in 1834 to provide a route between New York City and Boston, the Long Island Rail Road ran from the Brooklyn waterfront through the center of Long Island to Greenport. The railroad served the agricultural market on Long Island until branches and competing lines eventually developed on the north and south shores of the island and several hundred passenger stations were built. After Penn Station was opened in 1910, the number of passengers commuting between Manhattan and Long Island began to multiply. Today, one hundred twenty-five stations serve the Long Island Rail Road. Long Island Rail Road Stations contains vintage postcards of the old Penn Station, which was demolished in the mid-1960s; the Grand Stairway at the Forest Hills Station, where Theodore Roosevelt delivered his famous unification speech on July 4, 1917; and the Amagansett station building, where Nazi spies boarded a train bound for New York City on June 13, 1942. Many of the historic stations featured in this book have been preserved by local preservation groups, while others have been replaced with modern buildings to accommodate the passengers who commute on the nation's largest commuter railroad.
