As part of its 2009 Lunch and Lecture Series, the North Shore Historical Museum recently hosted a visual history of the revival of Long Island’s renowned Nunley Carousel at Glen Cove’s Page One Restaurant.
Historian and videographer Barry Rivadue, a museum board member, had spent the past 18 years compiling the visual history of the Nunley Carousel, one of the nation’s last remaining hand carved wooden carousels. The Carousel, built in 1912, was dismantled and sat for many years in a storage shed until it was ultimately restored and is now operating on Museum Row at Mitchell Field.
Linda Darby, organizer of the lecture series said, “We were fortunate to have Barry’s expertise in visually capturing this colorful aspect of Long Island’s history.”
Mr. Rivadue has also filmed oral histories of many North Shore residents, capturing their memories for the Museum’s archives. The Carousel video was narrated and features a poem about Nunley’s Carousel by Victoria Crosby, Glen Cove’s poet laureate and vice president of the museum.
Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi announced that Representative Peter King and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand have secured $500,000 to improve the City of Glen Cove’s water system infrastructure. This funding, which is part of the Fiscal Year 2010 Interior and Environmental Appropriations bill, supplements the federal funding that is already allocated to the city each year, he stated.
The mayor said that the City of Glen Cove has devoted a significant amount of resources toward rehabilitating the city’s aging drinking and storm water infrastructure. In addition, earlier this year, Mayor Suozzi and CDA/IDA Director Kelly Morris traveled to Washington, DC to meet with Representative King, Senator Schumer and Senator Gillibrand to advocate for additional federal support for Glen Cove’s water infrastructure initiatives.
The Glen Cove Board of Education held a special meeting this week to provide contractors and the public more detailed information on how to bid on construction projects. Attorney Carrie Anne Tondo from the law firm Ingerman Smith, L.L.P. presented the facts in the Middle School Mini Center, while the board held their Executive Session downstairs. After disappointment on the track project and questions arising as a result of the bus yard proposal, residents have pushed for the school to encourage more bids and more local bidders.
Before the presentation began, Superintendent Dr. Laurence Aronstein explained that the purpose of the informal public meeting was to “demystify the bidding process” for contractors. The 45-minute long presentation covered topics from an overview of the school district construction process to a breakdown of what is contained in a project manual, to actually submitting a bid on a project.
