The Lido Dunes
Nestled alongside the award-winning private beaches, the Lido Dunes is an elegant and picturesque beach community boasting multi million-dollar homes. The development of the Lido Dunes was arranged by former New York Senator William Reynolds during the 1920’s. A successful entrepreneur, William Reynolds is also often referred to as the “father” of Long Beach, NY. The western section of Lido Beach was first known as Lido Colony. Many of the older homes in the area were built right around the Depression. During the period of Prohibition at least one house, still existing, was known as a drop for the rum-runners. Since that time, the Lido Dunes has become known as a haven for private, relaxed upscale luxury living.
