North Hills (North Hempstead, New York)

North Hills (North Hempstead, New York)
Beginnings: There really is a Shelter Rock, an 1,800-ton boulder, largest known on Long Island, deposited by a mighty glacier more than 11,000 years ago near what is now Shelter Rock Road in the village of North Hills. The Matinecocks used its 30-foot overhang for shelter and weaved many legends around it, as did the European colonists. The giant boulder is on the private estate of the late John Hay Whitney, publisher and ambassador to England. It's not visible from the road.
