(154) Long Island

Long Island is one of the places where post-war North American suburbia came into existence.  This week readers in Canada and the States can learn where things are at now in an HBO special called Hard Times: Lost On Long Island.

“…a sobering look at the realities of long-term, white-collar unemployment in America, as seen through the eyes of several Long Island residents who lost their jobs in the wake of the recent recession.”
