(Excerpt from Wikipedia)
Oyster Bay is the name of a hamlet and census-designated place on the North
Shore of Long Island in Nassau County in the state of New York, USA. The hamlet
is also the site of a station on the Long Island Rail Road and the eastern
termination point of that branch of the railroad. The community is within the Town
of Oyster Bay, a town which contains 18 villages and 18 hamlets.
Oyster Bay was discovered by the Dutch, and was the boundary between the
Dutch New Amsterdam colony and the English New England Colonies. The
English, under Peter Wright, first settled in the area in 1653. The boundary
between the Dutch and English was somewhat fluid which led each group having
their own main Street.
During the Revolutionary War, Raynham Hall was owned by the patriot Townsend
family. It was here, the Major Andre was billeted and Bennedict Arnold's plot to turn
over West Point to the British was uncovered.
The oysters that give the bay its name are now the only source of traditionally
farmed oysters from Long Island, providing up to 90% of all the oysters harvested
in New York State.
Oyster Bay is known for the residence and summer White House of Theodore
Roosevelt, Sagamore Hill.
It was Dutch explorer Adrian Block who named Oyster Bay in 1615 for its
abundance of shellfish. The well-protected, productive bay provided food for the
Matinecock Indians and then became a magnet for traders, fishermen,
shipbuilders and sailors. But it was a president who made Oyster Bay famous.
Theodore Roosevelt, who built Sagamore Hill in Cove Neck in 1885, was part of
the flock of influential city people who came to Oyster Bay in those years. As New
York City police commissioner from 1895 to 1897, he commuted to Manhattan
from the Oyster Bay train station.
