Long Beach New York - Architecture - Page 1
Long Beach has many distinctive, original and beautiful homes which have survived the years.  The classic, original style have a Mediterranean flair and Spanish tile roofs.  Many have been lovingly restored, while others have been hastily and needlessly demolished or lost to development.  Still others have been destroyed by fire over the years.  My thanks to the Long Beach Historical Society for their efforts to preserve, document, catalog and restore these classic homes for generations to come, and  thanks also to Lowell Taubman of the Historical Society for taking the time to photograph most of these homes.

172 Riverside Blvd
This home, at 172 Riverside Blvd,  was once known as the Beachview Hotel. It is scheduled to be demolished in the near future by it's owners in order to construct a newer facility.  It is currently in use as a dormitory.  Quite a shame to lose such a large, old structure.
Possibly the former home of Eddie Cantor on Riverside and Beech St... One of several old homes slated to be demolished to make way for a dormitory complex.

Wendy Solof emailed me that she believes this is her family's former home at 254 W. Penn.  It was formerly owned by the Winikoff family.
