The bustling little Long Island town of Syosset has had many facelifts over the years. Original structures have been remodeled and replaced, leaving just a shadow of the good old days of horse-drawn carriages and general stores.
But if you look closely, sometimes you can see old Syosset hidden among the new constructions. We'll be bringing you back to the old Syosset with the help of Syosset Scrapbook and helpful photo donors.
Last time, we asked readers what the shell of the pictured building became. Reader Nina P. Anastasio was first to correctly identify it as Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church, which celebrated its 60th birthday last week. Check out the side-by-side photo above of Faith Lutheran then and now.
This week, we'd like you to tell us about the digging happening in the above photo. We'll tell you that the work was done near Syosset High School and created a large swamp nearby.
