this is really right on the cusp of the population explosion. In 1950, the population of Islip Town, a roughly 100 sq mi municipality on the south shore of central LI, was approx. 70,000. In 1970, it was 270,000. ridiculous rate of growth, and pretty much exclusively, unfortunately, detached single-family homes.
