Boats were used to transport the liquor that came from outside the United States, predominately from Canada and the Bahamas. Long Island had irregular coastlines with an abundance of discrete inlets for boats to hide, facilitating the smuggling of liquor to the island and Manhattan. With some of the wealthiest communities in the country and the close proximity to Manhattan, Long Island was a natural spot for the illegal activity. Long Island soon became the one of the largest areas of transport and consumption. Prohibition on the Gold Coast offers readers a glimpse of what life was like on Long Island during the 1920's. Readers will be provided with a view of the underground passages during prohibition, rum running from the waters and brought through underground tunnels to mansions, speakeasies and pickups for the gangster routes into Manhattan, the remnants of Gatsby Country today, and introduced to colorful figures who contributed to organized crime, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Nicky Ornstein, Arld Rothstein, Leggs Diamond, Bugsy Siegel, and the Real McCoy. In this new perspective of the history of Long Island readers will find hidden secrets about our beloved Gold Coast.
