Long Island’s haunted past comes alive in Historic Haunts of Long Island (2015) by local author Kerriann Flanagan Brosky. Take a ghostly journey through Long Island’s history, from Native American legends and beyond. Learn about the ghosts that lurk at the Execution Rocks Lighthouse, where Revolutionary War Patriots were brutally tortured and killed by the British during the Battle of Long Island, and the gathering places that have otherworldly tenants (such as Bayport’s Grey Horse Tavern and the Cutchogue Village Green). Long Island’s history is unearthed and preserved through its ghost stories and spirits that have made their presence known. Through extensive research, interviews, and investigations, award-winning author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky uncovers Long Island’s eerie history.
