Re: Hebrew Reformatory, Plainview NY Early 1900's #usa
I grew up in Plainview, never heard about that. I just looked at the entry on Wikipedia. No mention, but please do read it because it mentions the fact that there was another Plainview somewhere in NYS which caused a post office dilemma. May I suggest you contact the Plainview Public Library (999 Old Country Rd, Plainview, NY 11803 or call (516) 938-0077
There is a neighboring place called Plainedge.
Sorry, can't help more, but at least here is a place to ask and librarians love to do research!!
