Tales of the Gold Coast
At the turn of the 20th century Long Island’s North Shore was the most prized residential area of the U.S. This was where captains of industry and financial titans built lavish estates on the bluffs and bays and commissioned fast, luxurious yachts that they used for everything from commuting to the city to racing and voyaging. Step back in time to that fascinating era, at Planting Fields’ Coe Hall, on Sunday, Sept. 17, 4-6 p.m., when Dr. Robert MacKay, a North Shore sailor, explores this extraordinary world of fabulous boats, many of which were built on the Island.
