Here's a very interesting article I stumbled upon, "well actually I was searching for it",  the making of D'Addario violin strings.

Very interesting, and made in New York.

I have to wonder exactly where they are in Farmingdale.  My parents live right next to Farmingdale and my brother lives in Farmingdale.  I'll have to look and see where it is so mext time I go to visit my parents I can stop by and hopefully get to see the plant.

I just checked where, D'Addario Mfg. is at.

595 Smith Street, Farmingdale, N.Y.

Smith St. appears to run W. off of Wellwood St.

 

Maybe you know that area.

I know exactly where it is.  I thought it might be there.  Until the late 1960s there was a company called Republic Aircraft.  They closed down but if you look on the mao you can see part of the airfield is still there today. My grandparents are burried at the cemetery right across Wellwood Ave and my brother lives about 5 minutes from there and my parents about 15 minutes away.
