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.

This book on Oceanside shows us that we are one of the great historic communities on Long Island. I loved the pictures and relished the memories.

I'm tickled pink that our town has a book to represent it. Richard Woods has done a wonderful job capturing Oceanside's spirit via pictures and text. I'm going to buy copies for everyone in our family.
