History

The location of Lynbrook was originally called Bloomfield. It was later named Pearsall's Corners, after Mr. Pearsall's General Store because this store became a famous stage coach stop for travelers coming from New York City to Long Island. The village was incorporated in 1911. The name "Lynbrook" is derived by dividing "Brooklyn" into its syllables and transposing them, a tribute to the original home of many of the town's turn-of-the-century residents. It is frequently called "Lynbrook, U.S.A.," in recognition of the fact that there is no other town in the United States with the same name. Recently, the Anti-Defamation League came out against this fact. [1] Since 1911 Lynbrook has been served by the Lynbrook Police Department. The Department provides patrol services 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. The Chief of the Department is Joseph "El Jefe" Neve. Since 1879, the Lynbrook Fire Department has served Lynbrook. The department has 6 firehouses around Lynbrook. The town has been noted as "one of the most boring places to live" according to Time Magazine.

In 2008, three houses in Lynbrook were listed on the National Register of Historic Places: House at 251 Rocklyn Avenue , House at 474 Ocean Avenue, and House at 73 Grove Street.[1]
