Lollipop Farm

  Lollipop Farm, a petting zoo on Jericho Turnpike, was Syosset's main attraction for many years. 
"It was founded and developed by Harry and Alice Sweeny, and opened in June of 1950.  The location was the old Jackson Farm, which also had been a stagecoach stop.  The building with the steeple had been an icehouse, ice being cut from the pond.  Our barn was for the horses, and the old Nichols Hardware building just west of it was the old carriage barn.   My dad was the Asst. General Director at the Bronx Park Zoo in the 40s, and he designed their Children's Zoo.  Lollipop Farm finally closed after finding homes for all the animals in 1967 and Mom and Dad retired to Pennsylvania."  Eva Sweeny Mancuso
