Explore Iceland
Thursday 5/28/2020; 7:30 - 8:00 PM
Go to to view

Vacation from home, join Jeanne Schnupp for a guided tour of Iceland. A short visit to Iceland’s capital and nearby areas is akin to visiting multiple US national parks in just a few days! There are majestic falls, geothermal pools, black sand beaches, shooting geysers, several UNESCO world heritage sites, spectacular volcanoes – Iceland is one of the most volcanically active places in the world – and the fissure where European and North American tectonic plates meet. With such a diverse & compelling landscape, it’s no surprise Iceland has been the backdrop of other-worldly TV shows & movies, including Game of Thrones and Star Wars.

Local History Corner with Brad
Virtual Tour Program:   CYARK - Explore history in 3D
Virtually travel to over 100 of the world's most famous monuments in immersive and accurate 3D images

For more than five centuries, the waterways surrounding Long Island have profoundly shaped its history. Familiar subjects of lighthouses, shipwrecks and whaling are found alongside oft-forgotten history such as Pan-American flying boats landing in Manhasset Bay in the early days of transatlantic flight. From the British blockade and skirmishes during the American Revolution to the sinking of merchant vessels by Germany in World War II, the sea brought wars to these shores. Gold Coast millionaires commuted in high-speed yachts to Manhattan offices as the island's wealth grew. Historian Bill Bleyer reveals Long Island's nautical bonds from the Native Americans to current efforts to preserve the region's maritime heritage. Click here to download the ebook
