This beautiful artwork was designed for the 1939 New York World Fair, the second most expansive American World Fair of all time. The artwork was sponsored by the village of Sea Cliff and printed on t-shirts, posters, and flyers to encourage those attending the World Fair to visit Sea Cliff afterwards.

1. Just One Long Step To Sea Cliff!


Sea Cliff, in the Town of Oyster Bay, hugs the shoreline south of Glen Cove and north of Glenwood Landing. It is bounded to the east by Glen Cove Avenue and the unincorporated areas of Glen Head.

In the mid-1800s, Sea Cliff was a campground for Methodist revival meetings. Its close-set tent sites eventually became lots for small bungalows. By the end of that century the place was a resort.

3. No Mosquitos in Sea Cliff NY!


City visitors arrived by steamship and stayed at village hotels or boarding houses, some of which ended up converted for use as private homes. It was wealthy families from Brooklyn who built the large Victorians on the hillsides for their summertime use. The village was incorporated in 1883, and today has 5,000+ residents.
