Wednesday, June 09, 2004 - No longer their parents’ Iran - Student Briefing Page: "When Kayvon and Sassan Mesbah of Oyster Bay Cove visited their parents' birth country of Iran last summer, they were impressed.

'The culture is very lively and interesting,' said Kayvon, 13. '... The new generation was becoming more westernized. It's evolving from what it's been since the Islamic revolution.'

The largest U.S. communities of Iranian-Americans are in California and New York -- most around Los Angeles and New York City. Roughly 10,000 Iranians live on Long Island, many in the towns of North Hempstead and Oyster Bay."
