1930's Weekend - Sea Cliff, Long Island  

Just one long step to Sea Cliff, Long Island, by land or water. 250 feet above sea level. No mosquitos! Travel poster promoting Sea Cliff, New York by the WPA Federal Art Project, Dis. 4, New York, between 1936 and 1939.

If you're promoting a visit to a place that has "cliff" in it's name, is including the phrase "just one long step" really the best idea? I do like their "no mosquitos!" promise. I wonder if anyone challenged that.
