Ratner, Wang Tapped To Help County Solve Coliseum Conundrum

Written by Rich Forestano Tuesday, 20 November 2012 16:36

Renaissance Downtown chosen as master developer

The owner who decided to move the New York Islanders off Long Island once its lease expires in June 2015 may play a role in filling the potential void left by the teams’ departure. County Executive Edward P. Mangano, developer Bruce Ratner, Isles owner Charles Wang and Don Monti of Renaissance Downtown think they have a plan in place to solve the developmental conundrum that is the Hub, which includes Nassau Coliseum.

The group announced a strategic “Reuse Plan” on Tuesday, Nov. 20 that reportedly will transform the Coliseum within the first half of 2013. Others have tried and failed where Ratner is venturing and the 77-acre site in Uniondale could become barren in three years once Wang departs for Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Hurricane Sandy Brings Devastation To LI

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 09 November 2012 00:00

Destroyed homes, power outages, and long gas lines are left in the storm’s wake

“I thought my house was going to blow away,” one local homeowner told Farmingdale Observer. As he was working on the monumental task of cleaning up his home after the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy; he spoke about the frightening feeling that his home would come apart during the storm. Many Farmingdale homes incurred tremendous damage, as did so many homes throughout Long Island, and in particular, Nassau County. As with many Nassau residents, much of residents’ belongings were ruined and they are left with the task of rebuilding a home.

It is a scene that is devastatingly similar throughout Long Island, and particularly in waterfront areas on the north and south shores. Homeowners desperately tried to remove the water that had flooded homes by opening doors, windows, garage doors, and by using generator-powered vacuums, designed to capture water. Along curbsides, carpets, furniture, clothing, toys, and other treasured belongings were left for sanitation crews to take away. Literally, lifetimes of memories had been washed away.
