Overview

With Hicksville, local historians Richard and Anne Evers take us on a journey back in time from the area's 1648 land purchase from Native Americans and associations with Elias Hicks, the Jericho antislavery leader, to its transformation into a thriving twentieth-century Long Island suburb of New York City. Through evocative images and insightful text, we learn how the Long Island Railroad was dead-ended here in the Panic of 1837 and how German immigrants created a village and vacation spa in the area. Readers fly with the Lone Eagle as he coaches his wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, to make good landings at the Long Island Aviation Country Club. We glimpse singer and songwriter Billy Joel learning his craft as a young Hicksville piano man. At General Instrument we watch as workers win a Navy E award for developing technology to guide the Polaris missiles on our Cold War submarines. Home to goldbeaters, a Heinz pickle works, the famous Long Island potato, and epoch-making Levitt-type homes near Grumman's (whose naval aircraft won the Pacific War), Hicksville has made large contributions to the nation's social, economic, and political sectors.
