HistoryEdit

Prior to suburbanization, North Bay Shore consisted of numerous farms.[2]

In 1972, a small airplane made an emergency landing in North Bay Shore.[3] The plane, a Cessna 150 piloted by Levittown resident Joseph Krzywonos, suffered from a motor failure when on approach to the former Deer Park Airport, and Krzywonos was unable to restart the motor. The plane soon hit a tree and power lines, before spinning and coming to a halt in the driveway of 18 Chimney Lane. Although the plane was destroyed, the cars in the driveway were damaged, and the home's power and windows were knocked out by the impact, nobody was hurt in the incident.[3]
