Nancy Fabrizio of Floral Park is an award-winning member of several local art leagues on Long Island. Fabrizio’s artwork often depicts the seacoast, with its ever-changing, magical light and delicate hues. She enjoys en plein air painting whenever possible, especially if she is near a rocky coastline and can hear the soothing sounds of the sea. Her palette is often filled with the subtle blues, violets and greens of the ocean.
Fabrizio paints both in watercolor and in oils. Although she has had a deep interest in art since childhood, she spent many years in a fulfilling career providing assistance to victims of crime. She is now able to pursue her lifelong love of painting.
Whether Fabrizio is painting a moody coastal scene, a warm-hued southwestern landscape, or a sunlit city street, she hopes that her artwork will invite the viewer to be briefly transported to the places that have inspired her.
She loves the fluidity and surprise of watercolors and the texture and richness of oils. Recent trips to New Mexico and France — and the unique light and architectural features of each location — has brought a new dimension of color and shape to her artwork.
She is fortunate to have been inspired by, and to study with, many accomplished artists, including Beth Ellis, Howard Rose, Steve Lamposona and Maryann Heinzen.

At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, residents and community members joined with the Floral Park American Legion to honor veterans at the annual Veteran’s Day ceremonies at Memorial Park, following a march down Tulip Avenue to the park with the members of the veterans of the Legion post, American Legion Auxiliary members, Sons of the American Legion, Boy and Cub Scouts from Troops 482 and 678 and local officials.
During the ceremony, a plaque was dedicated in memory of General Kazimierz Pulaski and others of Polish heritage who have served in the U.S. military. The plaque dedication was led by members of the Polish American Congress, Long Island Division, President Grzegorz Worma and Honorary President Richard Brzozowski. An invocation was delivered by Father Peter Rozek of St. Hedwig Church, followed by a POW-MIA ceremony by Post 334 Vice Commander Matthew Cacciatore.

While parking around Long Island Rail Road train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.
“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”
