Point Lookout

Point Lookout
Beginnings: Point Lookout sits on the eastern tip of what was for many years little more than a jumbo-sized sandbar off the South Shore. That changed after William Reynolds dredged the channel that bears his name and built the city of Long Beach. Inhabited only during summer, it was known as Nassau-by-the-Sea and was accessible only by ferry from Freeport. The community burned to the dune some time before World War I, but bungalows reappeared for summer residents, this time under the community name of Point Lookout. In 1936, they objected, in vain, to the Town of Hempstead establishing a public park there, complaining that it would attract people from elsewhere in the town.
