"Day 2- Amityville, Long Island, New York......"

Our 2nd day of our stay on Long Island was spent driving to and visiting Amityville, NY, Don's hometown.

Here is "The Triangle", a triangular building in the center of town. We walked around some prior to our meeting a childhood friend of Don's, Guy, who would be meeting us for lunch.

This is where Don spent 2 years of his schooling (5th and 6th grade) and where Don's father (Robert) went to high school.

This building is across the street from the old high school and I found it very interesting, so had Don snap a photo. It apparently is the old historic firehouse, but we have no documentation for that. I find it a very cool building though.......

We also visited the old bank, which is now the home of the Amityville Historical Society's Museum. While touring the museum and looking at a book which held historical photos, we found one of Don's father posing with his high school wrestling team.

This is the old city library which is now offices of some sort. Guy, whom we were meeting for lunch, worked there during their high school years.

Speaking of Guy, here he is with Don. He took the train from Manhattan, where he now lives, to have lunch and spend some time with us.

He also was nice enough to snap a photo of us, too........a rare thing for us. :)

Amityville visit continued tomorrow..........
