Long Island Seaport and Eco Center and the Port Jefferson Arts Council are pleased to present the Historical/Social Documentary film "Greetings From Fire Island."
Do you know what role Fire Island played in the 1892 cholera epidemic inNew York City? Who was the last lighthouse keeper? How did Sunken Forest get its name and how old are some of the trees in it? What is the story behind the founding of some of the communities?
