Long Island Railroad – HSERL CONNECTION

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

The Historical Society of East Rockaway & Lynbrook announces a new dimension to its presence in our communities.  The Long Island Railroad Lynbrook station will now display memorabilia from East Rockaway & Lynbrook.

The LIRR Branch Manager, Patrick Gerakaris has had installed two shadow boxes in the waiting room of the Lynbrook Station.  HSERL will be able to display pictures, and other small artifacts in the station lobby.

Madeline Pearson, HSERL Executive Director, and Arthur Mattson, HSERL Director and Lynbrook Village Historian, will begin the process of mounting pictures in the cases.  It is a wonderful opportunity for us to share our story, with not only local commuters, but all people who use the Lynbrook station.

In the process of exploring our local history, we came in touch with another aspect of our story.  Who would that be? The Lynbrook PBA. They, too, will have an opportunity to share their history here with everyone.


Patricia C. Sympson, PhD. President HSERL

Here you would write a summary of the article, then post the image for people to see.  It would be ideal to have the image scanned large enough that it can be read when someone clicks on the image.
