Some families have weekly dinners, or go on yearly vacations. Other families run a business together. When it comes to Milena’s Garden Center and Garden City’s Basso Family, it’s the latter.
When John Basso was 18, he emigrated from Argentina found an old house on Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, and turned it into a nursery in April 1997. He named his business after his daughter, Milena. Flowers are associated with femininity, he feels, so the name was a perfect fit for his nursery.
To the delight of its members, the Stewart Manor Pool opened for the season on Friday, June 13.

It’s become tradition in Stewart Manor to line up long before the gate opens in an attempt to claim the coveted honor of being the first to jump into the pool each new season.
