Roslyn Reviews

Roslyn is a beautiful little village on the North Shore of Long Island, that sits at the inner most portion of Roslyn Harbor. The old village Grist Mill still stands in it's original place, bringing back visions of a time gone by and adding to the villages charm.
I hope that the village does not change to much over the coming years, as there are so few places on Long Island that have been preserved so well, where you can still find a bit of history in your own backyard.
