The Long Island Heritage Trail, formerly Kings Highway and known as the Washington Spy Trail, originated in the 1700s . The trail encompasses the entire Route 25A corridor which stretches along the island’s Gold Coast and is a major part of Long Island’s history including its role in Prohibition during the Roaring 20s.
TURN, the new TV series on AMC is a dramatization based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies that tells the untold story of America’s 1st spy ring. The series explores the Culper Ring, a band of Long Island friends, considered to be the first spy ring in the nation 250 years ago. #TURN
