Adventureland[Book: Christopher Mercaldo – 2014 – 16x23cm – 98 Pages – Many colour photos]. Since 1962, Adventureland (Farmingdale, New York) has been entertaining and thrilling the Long Island community. The park was constructed in a rural area of Suffolk County around the time of a suburban boom eastward on Long Island, which brought enormous population growth in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Since its opening, the park has seen significant change, with numerous rides and attractions being moved or retired to make way for newer attractions. Unique images of the park throughout its entire history afford the young and the young at heart to remember the park from opening to today.
