"Over the years I learned that Franklin Square and Elmont were not the only nineteenth century German settlements on Long Island. I began to investigate Lindenhurst, formerly Stadt Breslau, and Hicksville as well in an attempt to make comparisons with Franklin Square. Though there were parallels between each community, it turned out that the origins and development of each German enclave was very different. This book is an imperfect attempt to shed light on a significant ethnic history which, for many reasons, remained largely hidden for much of the twentieth century." - Foreword. ; (iv), 106 pages.
