Lightbulb Laurel Hollow, New York

Laurel Hollow is a village in the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York in the United States. The population was 1,952 at the 2010 census.

The settlement began around 1653 with purchase of land from the local natives. The village was incorporated in 1926 as "Lauralton," but the name was changed to "Laurel Hollow" in 1935 to avoid confusion with a location in Queens County, New York..The famous Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, is located in the village...

John Lennon, member of The Beatles, owned a home with wife Yoko Ono in Laurel Hollow at the time of his death..

'It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts..You know my method.. It is founded upon the observation of trifles'...Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently... "I can't make bricks without clay"...
The surgeon also noted—as did other witnesses—that at the moment Lennon was pronounced dead a Beatles song ("All My Loving") came over the hospital's sound system..
