This book describes how the Massapequas changed from a sparsely settled locale with old mansions east of New York City into a heavily populated suburb in the forty years after World War II. As such, it represents a microcosm of the enormous social changes that took place across the United States after the war, resulting in a new lifestyle called suburban living.
