With the help of resident Suzie Alvey, the Garden City Life will be running photos of unidentified homes from the village that may or may not be still standing. We’re asking that readers delve into their memories or share these photos with friends and relatives in the hopes we can get them identified. If so, please contact Alvey at 516-326-1720 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Evolving from a project that’s centered on digitizing the Garden City Library’s archives, plans are not only to make these records more complete, but also have Alvey shoot a photo of the current building if it still exists. Part of the village’s rich history is the architectural beauty that’s been a constant ever since Alexander Turney Stewart kicked things off by purchasing almost 10,0000 acres of the Hempstead Plains back in 1869. This is a chance to actively contribute to that legacy.

As if the Garden City High School football team winning the Long Island Championship wasn’t enough, along comes Bethany LeSueur. Not only did the hoopster become the state’s No. 2 all-time scorer having hoisted up 3,167 points but she led her team to three New York State Final Fours, was named Miss New York State Basketball and wound up with a stellar 121-12 record during her time as a Lady Trojan. So is it any surprise that her number 23 was recently retired? It’s the kind of well-deserved honor that has the Garden City Life wishing her congratulations and best wishes for her future hardwood endeavors.

Pedestrian Safety

If you choose to walk, jog or bike-ride in the dark, we urge, for your own safety and the safety of vehicle operators, that you wear some type of reflective vest. Bicyclists are also urged to equip their bicycles with front and rear lights.

We have already experienced a number of accidents that perhaps would not have occurred had some type of reflective protective gear been worn.

 

Editorial: Viva Havana Central

Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

With temperatures recently hovering below freezing, the notion of sunnier climes is a pretty constant thought. And with such inclement and miserable conditions, this season is all about nesting and diving into comfort food while trying to get through the blustery days of January and February. For some people, that might come in the form of meat, potatoes and tomato soup. But for me, rice and beans, pastelles and maduros with flan serving as an exemplary dessert is what hits the spot. And while there are numerous places where you can find any combination of these and other Latin dishes, my newest discovery is Havana Central, the latest restaurant to plant roots in Garden City. With a décor that’s a throwback to pre-Castro Cuba and a menu that’s stocked with all kinds of dishes just like abuela used to make, it’s a culinary oasis guaranteed to get you through those dark days of winter

Go Red For Women

Feb. 1 will mark the 8th Annual American Heart Association National Wear Red Day for Women to raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 health threat facing women today. Most people still do not know that heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death for women and 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. While 1 in 31 American women die from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 die of heart disease.

The American Heart Association has posted on its website some ways to prevent heart disease: don’t smoke; manage your blood sugar; get your blood sugar under control; lower your cholesterol; know your family history; stay active; lose weight, and eat healthy.

 

Editorial: Will New Garden City Hotel Owners End All The Rumors?

Friday, 25 January 2013 00:00

When Morris Moinian’s Manhattan-based Fortuna Realty Group purchased the storied Garden City Hotel, the entire process was very clandestine. Rumors such as Donald Trump being interested before the final deal was sealed only added to the intrigue. And while rampant staff layoffs were a great concern, a mass firing was followed by more than 90 percent of the hotel’s employees subsequently being rehired according to hotel management. Any lingering questions about the future of this seminal piece of village history just might be answered on Wednesday, Jan. 30, when the Garden City Chamber of Commerce holds its 2013 kickoff luncheon. The day’s special guests will be the hotel’s new general manager J. Grady Colin and Fortuna Realty director and head of acquisitions and asset management Ashish Lall. Hopefully the duo will be a bit more forthcoming than when their boss made this prized real estate acquisition back in June.

Shopping Carts

Your village has spent a good deal of time and money to beautify our central business district in order to make it as appealing to residents and businesses. Our local food markets on Seventh Street and Franklin Avenue have also made a significant investment in purchasing high quality shopping carts for our use and convenience while shopping in their stores. Regrettably, these carts are not being returned to the prescribed areas by the shoppers and are being left within the parking fields and in the areas of the apartment houses.

In consideration of your neighbors, merchants and community, I urge residents to return these carts to their respective stores. Please don’t place the village in the position to have to expend manpower and time to impound the shopping carts. The residents’ effort will go a long way to keeping our village the beautiful place that we all want it to be.

 

Editorial: Back To The Ice For The NHL

Friday, 18 January 2013 00:00
On Jan. 19, the NHL returns to action after a 113-day strike. While hockey fans simultaneously lamented and shook their fists over the greed of millionaires and owners, the sport continued to reverberate on the local level.
As bars, restaurants and other merchants that line Hempstead Turnpike were dealing with lower profits this year compared to last, concession workers who normally peddled wares during Islanders games were drawing unemployment. Meanwhile, Nassau Coliseum’s main tenant, thr Islanders, announced that they would be moving west to Brooklyn in 2015. And while numerous Garden City fans may have been just as miserable as their brethren across North America, the one piece of silver lining in all of this was the announcement that the village’s newly renovated roller hockey rink would be ready for unveiling later in 2013.

Update - Cleanup From Hurricane Sandy

The Incorporated Village Public Works and Recreation and Parks employees continue the cleanup effort that began the day after Hurricane Sandy ravaged our community. Unfortunately, the effort has delayed the regular fall cleanup of parks and village greenspace, but we are catching up and should have the fall cleanup completed in the near future.

By way of a general status report, all of the timber and brush have been removed, including the massive pile of material that were temporarily stored at the village yard and at 550 Stewart Ave. All of the stumps left from the village trees have been removed and the cavities filled and leveled in preparation for spring. Concrete from broken sidewalks and curbs is currently being removed and the voids filled and leveled. The sidewalk flags and curbing that were destroyed by fallen village-owned trees will be replaced by an Incorporated Village of Garden City contractor at the Incorporated Village’s expense. The Department of Public Works is currently scheduling the work with our contractor. Residents should be aware that this is weather and temperature sensitive work that may delay progress until the spring.
