Groundbreaking For ‘Yellow Cottage’

Historic building donated to city for new youth foundation

After years of planning, a groundbreaking was held last week to celebrate the preservation of one of Glen Cove’s historic buildings, known as the “Yellow Cottage,” a final holdover on Cottage Row from days past. The cottage is being donated by the Canarick family in memory of Morris and Rae Canarick. The building is being moved onto city property, where it will house the Sidney Canarick Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to benefit the youth of Glen Cove through sports.

Founder and CEO/treasurer of the Sidney Canarick Foundation, Paul Canarick, was joined at the groundbreaking by the foundation’s trustees: City Councilman Michael Famiglietti, president; Judge Richard McCord, vice president; and County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton, secretary.

Also joining the event were Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi, City Council members Nick DiLeo, Anthony Jimenez and former Councilman Sean Dwyer.

The Canarick family members present were: Susan Canarick, Jack Canarick, Paul Canarick, Debbie McAlla, Ross McAlla, David McAlla, Tim Wasp, Natalie Meyer, Richard Meyer, Alex Meyer and Amanda Giambrone.

The Canarick family has owned the Yellow Cottage for almost a century. Paul Canarick is also donating the expense of moving the historic building from its current location to its destination on a city parcel around the corner.

Paul arranged for this donation and the new foundation as a way to honor his father, Sidney, who was an active member of the Glen Cove community, particularly a major proponent of youth sports programs.

“My dad was a big athlete. He played football in Glen Cove, and went on to play for Bucknell. He was the winning quarterback of the first Orange Bowl,” shared Paul. “After the service, he became very involved with recreation in Glen Cove. He started many of our programs. So this is something to carry on what he did. We’ll be supporting sports for Glen Cove’s kids.”

News

It was the second annual goal setting workshop at Glen Cove High School on Tuesday, Oct. 14 and both the board of education and the public came up with some sound ideas for the district. School Superintendent Maria Rianna presented a slide show of four main areas that are the focus of district goals.

 

“We began this process last year and these goals are representative of what the community wanted to see,” said Rianna.

Glen Cove residents may see a 1.64 percent increase in the tax levy next year, the amount proposed at last week’s public hearing. Mayor Reginald Spinello and the Glen Cove City Council held an initial reading of the proposed budget for 2015, and will take final vote on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the next city council meeting.

 

“It’s very easy for a first time mayor to raise the taxes and blame it on a prior administration, and that is not what I am doing,” said Mayor Spinello. “In the past three administrations there were budgets with increases of  almost 28 percent to down to 12 percent, but it’s a different time now...I think that the residents are certainly going to feel relief. I put together a budget...that I believe is fair and reasonable and a good budget.”
