Long Island Traditions documents local architecture, from beach bungalows and bay houses to garden apartments and…More farm buildings. As fishermen and farmers disappear, Long Island Traditions fights for the preservation of Long Island's contemporary maritime and farming culture throughout the region.
To recognize and pay tribute to Long Island's diverse ethnic cultures, the organization supports Irish stepdance, African-American quilting, gospel and blues music, Jewish klezmer music, Native American stories and crafts, and the traditions of recent immigrants from Central and South America, India and Asia.
Through field interviews and oral histories, LI Traditions seeks to break down the barriers that divide us, so that we can share in the power and excellence of our family traditions.
In order to enhance studies of history and culture, LI Traditions offers three in-school education programs: Maritime Folk Arts program, ethnic folk arts programs, and programs that examine community architecture.
The Bible Church of Port Wash 35 Campus Dr, Port Washington, NY11050 The Church has maintained a belief in the fundamentals of the faith since its beginning. It still believes that the…More Bible is the infallible Word of God. It believes that Jesus Christ was God become man. It believes that He paid the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross, and rising from the dead on the third day. It believes that Christians have a responsibility to share the gospel that Jesus is the only hope for salvation, from an eternity in hell, and for an eternal home in heaven. It believes that Jesus Christ will come again to this earth. The congregation has changed over the years but it is still like its forbears seeking religious freedom to study and practice what the Bible says. It could still meet at the First Church building (if it had continued) for it remains evangelical in holding to the same conversion experiences of that 1858 revival. The original "Little Red School House" has also gone but the Port Washington Christian School continues its theistic teaching in its own one room setting.
