Floyd Place Subdivision Resurfaces
Just when they thought it was over, the Village of Great Neck once again faces the issue of a subdivision request for 1 Floyd Place. The proposal is to tear down an old house and build two new homes. The original request faced strong community opposition, and, eventually, the planning board recommended denying the application. The board of zoning appeals turned down the request at a Jan. 4 meeting. However, the developer, Firooz Fred Dilmanian, filed an Article 78, and the court then determined that the variance be granted.

Great Neck Kid KO's to Victory!
On Saturday night, Aug. 18, Brett Baker won his first amateur kickboxing match at the International Martial Arts Acadaemy in Mineola, in the successful culmination of months of training. Baker, a member of Great Neck South High's Class of 2000 and student at George Washington University, has had only six months of kickboxing training, and attributes his success to his trainer Warren Dreyfus, "Warren trained me as if for a pro debut instead of an amateur debut, touching all aspects of the sport." Dreyfus said in addition, "The growth we had to produce in order to feel confident was staggering. In three months, he went from a beginner lacking in mental, spiritual, and physical preparation to a confident and well prepared kickboxer, considering the limited time we had for training." Dreyfus is also a longtime Great Neck resident, and has been training in the martial arts for 16 years. In addition to his eight years of kickboxing experience, Dreyfus is a Black Belt in Shotokan karate, certified as a full instructor in Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee's martial arts system), and has studied Philippino Kali, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Kung Fu.
