Children's Wonderland Now Open
"You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out. You put your right foot in and you shake it all about. You do the hokey pokey and turn yourself about. That's what it's all about." Children sang the familiar song as they anxiously awaited a grand tour of the Long Island Children's Museum's (LICM) newly opened site in Garden City. Local politicians, including former Nassau County Executive Thomas Gulotta, later applauded for his work with the museum during his tenured position, mingled with enthusiastic LICM administration during the 40,000-square foot facility's grand opening Feb. 27.
Residents Demand Class Consolidation
More than 100 local residents currently living in village apartment buildings, condominiums and co-ops demanded last week that the Garden City Board of Education make a motion to consolidate property classes 2, 3 and 4. Fed up with what they call exorbitant taxes year after year, some warned the board of a forming coalition and even threatened they'd sue if necessary.
