Leisurama, a line of inexpensive prefabricated houses sold through Macy's department stores in the mid-1960s, and featured at the 1959 American National Exhibition in Moscow, prompted the historic Kitchen Debate between Vice President Richard Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. An estimated 200 of the houses were built in Culloden Point in Montauk, where some still remain. We’ll listen to the podcast and hear from the co-hosts for a lively look into this uniquely American phenomenon that proves there is truly no place like home.

An East End Programmers Event hosted by Westhampton Free Library.
