Valley Stream (Images of America)

Valley Stream (Images of America) (Bill Florio) Located near the south shore of Long Island at the gateway to Nassau County, the village of Valley Stream has grown from a bucolic farming community in the 1840s to a dense suburban hub full of history and diversity. Consisting of communities named Foster’s Meadow, Rum Junction, Skunk’s Misery, and Hungry Harbor, the town saw nightlife and leisure blossom after Merrick Road was built and the South Side Railroad pulled in. The village incorporated in 1925, finding itself a center of industry as the location of the Ridgewood Reservoir’s conduit pipe, Curtiss Field, Bulova Demco, and later, the birthplace of Snapple. Over the years, Valley Stream gained attention through many of its attractions, including the William R. Gibson Houses, Hoffman’s, the Pavilion Royal, Green Acres Mall, the Rio Theatre, Valley Stream State Park, and Itgen’s Ice Cream Parlour.
