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)

The following link is to the earliest footage known of Fire Island in and about Saltaire, Kismet and the lighthouse. The movie was filmed by Joe Lynch, one of the earliest residents. It shows damage from a storm, the wireless transmission towers between the Lighthouse and Kismet.
And here is the link to Brad Brown's compilation of Photos of Saltaire, 1967 to 2018, as compiled for the Saltaire centennial, 2017.
