Oyster Bay is quite an old town, having been established in the 17th century, and it is absolutely chock-full of great old buildings, only a few of which are pictured in this article.


Moore's Building

There are also parks, including Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. Theodore Roosevelt spent several summers as President in Oyster Bay (now the nearby hamlet of Cove Neck) and died and was buried there. However, if there are signs at parks saying "Residents only," you may be out of luck in that respect.
