Favorite Website:  1926 and 1950 Aerials of Nassau County

The is a valuable resource on every residence in Nassau County. Last October, Brian McCarthy discovered that 1926 and 1950 aerials are embedded into the website.

Below is a guide to using this website and a help guide to finding the aerials with Lake Success as an example.

My original MP Panel idea was to extract an overlay of all the pix and maps relating to the LIMP and post it with a key to (or copy of) the current Hagstrom’s.  Langenschweidt was amenable to some such arrangement.  A later finesse (when such became available - my, how OLD is all this?) was to have added GPS points.  Is there any interest in continuing with this notion?  Sam, III

Sam , I believe Wayne Consolla’s Google Map of the Motor Parkway provides one type of overlay:,-73.45081299999998&spn=0.11244,0.264187&dg=feature&msa=0&mid=1b9GM_MA5G3EiZ7GyUDHjSTmwffM&z=12

Looks promising. I’ll try it when I have a chance! Thanx!

May have mentioned this before, but I came across this site without intention. The 1926 aerials are amazingly clear. Suffolk County has a similar website, but I think your already aware of this; Howard. From what I noticed, other subscribers here are enjoying the site!
