We digitized and uploaded this film on behalf of the Prelinger Archives. Email us at if you have questions about the footage and are interested in using it in your project.

Newsday was begun in 1940 in Long Island and this film shows the paper's role in the growth of the community and many shots of historical Long Island. It also conveys Newsday's approach to journalism and shows the process of the newspaper's production and distribution.

The Levittown housing project began the suburban building boom in post-war Long Island.
The investigations of DeKoning's criminal activities and the awards received.

A real, proud advertisement for Newsday, this film is full of abundantly wholesome American images, from farms to bowling to riflery.
