Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

i've read that, like coney island, it was named by the dutch, who counted the barrier beach we call "fire island" as four separate islands. in dutch this would be "vier eilanden," which the english transliterated as "fire island" the dutch referred to our "coney" as "konijn eilandt" for all the rabbits they found there.
