A detailed map from "Atlas of Long Island, New York. From recent and actual surveys and records." Many land owners names are given. Patchogue was named after the Patchoque Indians, who once lived in the area. It was a heavily used port for bootleggers in the '20's, and the New York gangster Dutch Schultz had his headquarters there, employing local farm boys to assist in unloading and hiding the kegs.
