Syosset Then and Now: Where Is This Today?

Can you figure out where this photo was taken?


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.

Do you know where this photo was taken? You probably pass it every day on your way to work or school, so this shouldn't be too hard.

Give us your answer in the comments. Bonus: If you think you know where this is, take a quick photo and upload it!

Wow... great shot... Any idea of the year? Cars indicate 1930s, maybe?

Wow that was fast, Linda! Correct! Not sure of the date but 30s sounds about right.

Thanks for the great photo, Betty! Any idea when this was? The cars look about the same.
