Food for Thought...
It's a fact, what artist, designer, engineer or architect struck by a brilliant idea hasn't sketched and doodled on the nearest piece of paper - in many cases, a napkin or the back of a menu. It seems that all-consuming inspiration and food consumption have a direct correlation. Perhaps personal muses frolic best in a relaxing atmosphere fueled by the perfect cup of coffee or a great meal. At least that's what inspired Phil Gavosto and Keith Striga, architects of the Nassau County 9/11 Memorial Project, to create their winning design for the Eisenhower Park site.
Local Leaders Discuss Next Step in Fight Against Additional Track

Other community leaders from Mineola, Westbury and Carle Place have also announced their opposition.
