Looking to buy some property about a century ago? Massapequa was a great option as an up and coming community in 1906, with ‘over one hundred million dollars’ being pumped into Long Island infrastructure at the time. The value of a lot has gone up a bit thanks to those initial investments, as has the population of the region. Did you know the initial payment to secure a lot off of a street was only $10? At $5 a month, you would pay off the $195 in 3 years time and be a proper landowner.
