Aero-view of Amityville, Suffolk
County, Long Island, N.Y. 1925.
Reproduction aero-view of Amityville, New York created by Rene Cinquin and published by Metropolitan Aero-View Co. in 1925. Amityville is a village in Suffolk County that was established in 1894.
In 1925, Amityville was a popular visitors destination with large hotels on the bay and large homes. The village booster from 1925 reads:
"Those seeking new homes outside the city find in Amityville a quiet location with every convenience which a modern, up-to-date, progressive village offers. The large number of houses being erected, and the increasing number of commuters, are evidence that this village is an attractive place and bound to grow rapidly and prosper. It is situated on the open water of the Great South Bay, whose inlets make up ten miles of water front property on Amityville River, Clock's River, Wood's River, Maler's Canal, De Le Ree Canal and Meyer's Canal, providing in all an interesting shore line and just on the border line between Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Its location on the bay provides all one could wish for in the way of aquatic sports and recreation. Amityville has electric light and gas, fire and police protection, street water, two banks, library, high school, clubs, hotels, two motion picture houses and two newspapers. It has several miles of roads, paved with concrete, and its streets are well-graded and beautified by over-hanging trees. Amityville prides itself in a flourishing yacht club, the Unqua Corinthian, which affords constant social attractions from May to September; also its annual flower show, which attracts many people. Its churches are Methodist, Episcopal, Roman Catholic, and Colored Methodist; and for fraternal orders will be found the I. O. O. F., Knights of Pythias, Jr. O. U. A. M., F. & A. M., Knights of Columbus, Daughters of Liberty, Catholic Daughters of America, Rebekah Lodge, Order of Eastern Star, Carpenter's Union. There is also an active civic association and Chamber of Commerce. Chapelfiels is a country club and residence community of nearly one square mile surrounding the South Country Links and extending from the Merrick Road to Great South Bay just west of Amityville. Fairfields and wondrous wood where golf, tennis, boating, bathing and fishing make linksside and waterside cottages most alluring."
