Sure, Howard.  Those earliest PA transatlantic flights departed within a mile of
my office, in Port Washington, NY.  The "airport" was Manhasset Bay.  Still
functions as a seaplane base for itinerant operations.

The old PA hangars are still here, now in use by several marine engineering
firms, but the wooden seaplane ramp is long gone.

The Port Washington library has an excellent colection of vintage pictures and
memorabilia.
