Chabad Plans for School and Synagogue Enter Public Arena
As public hearings go, the one held to review the Chabad of Great Neck's application to build a school and synagogue at 400 East Shore Road in the Village of Kings Point, was fairly tame and courteous although clearly feelings run high on the issue.
Kings Point Sues Park District and Town
The Village of Kings Point has initiated a lawsuit against the Great Neck Park District and the Town of North Hempstead, in an effort to try to prevent the park district's acquisition of the waterfront property of the former George M. Cohan estate in Kings Point. In essence, the lawsuit claims that this is an improper acquisition since Kings Point did not grant consent. While efforts to reach Kings Point's attorney were unsuccessful, it appears that Kings Point actually filed the lawsuit to protect the rights of the village.
North Football Completes
It was a banner season on the gridiron for a group of eager and determined Blazer footballers, achieving a spectacular record of success during the regular eight game season with the added bonus of a trip to the county playoffs, heretofore accomplished only in 1975. Finishing with a 7-1 Conference III ledger, good for third place in the standings with a 125.2 power point rating, our team became the talk among the local and media, occasionally rated in the top 10 of the Island's small school polls as the season progressed.
