Hempstead Plains from Above (America Through Time) (Paperback)


Special Order
Once the largest prairie east of the Mississippi, the Hempstead Plains is a historic area in the heart of Nassau County. Home to the Cradle of Aviation and the site where Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis lifted off on its famous transatlantic flight, the area was also the site of important military camps and air bases, storied polo fields and golf courses, and legendary automobile and horse racing. In this unique book, you can revel in amazing aerial views of the Hempstead Plains that reveal many of the remnants of the area's glorious past, including the remaining swath of grasslands and the last bit of runway on what was once Mitchel Field. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy your tour through one of Long Island's most fascinating and treasured locations.
