The Long Island Rail Road's (LIRR) proposal to construct a 10.5 mile third track on the Main Line from Bellerose to Hicksville, which would run through Floral Park, has gotten many local community groups up in arms. A grassroots effort currently under way hopes to stop this project dead in its tracks.
Despite the bitter cold, over 150 constituents, community leaders and elected and appointed officials gathered Jan. 27 for a luncheon hosted by the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Port Washington-Manhasset at the George Washington Manor to hear North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman deliver his second State of the Town address. In summary, Supervisor Kaiman said, "The state of the Town of North Hempstead is good. In fact, it is great and getting better all the time."
