The celebration in Sea Cliff begins at 10 a.m. in the Village Green and Lincoln Plaza. Lincoln Plaza will be a new sitting area on the corner of Sea Cliff Avenue and Roslyn Avenue, accented by brickwork, plantings, and new benches. While trustee Ed Lieberman was researching the history of Sea Cliff Village, he discovered that this area was formerly known as ‘Mini-Plaza.’ The new name is inspired by the Abraham Lincoln quote on the weathered sign, which currently hangs over the space: “I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.”
After attending the reading of the Declaration of Independence on the Village Green at 10 a.m., follow the procession down to Lincoln Plaza for the official dedication ceremony which will include music, refreshments, and a visit from the 16th president.
