Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Friday, 04 March 2011 00:00

Mayor Stern Still Not Satisfied

U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman announced last Wednesday, Feb. 23, that he had secured a commitment from the Long Island Rail Road for a full study of noise mitigation for a proposed LIRR project in Thomaston. The Congressman told the Great Neck Record that LIRR President Helena Williams agreed to launch a “comprehensive study of all materials that could best mitigate noise for residents of the Village of Thomaston, whose homes would run alongside the proposed extension of the LIRR’s pocket track, just east of the Great Neck station.”

 

Restoring Udalls Mill Pond: Its Time Has Come

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 04 March 2011 00:00

Udalls Mill Pond has not been dredged in over 40 years. During those years, Udalls Pond, which is the ultimate repository for every drop of water than runs through the drainage system for the northern portion of the peninsula, has been filled with silt, sand and contaminants. The depth of the pond has been reduced to 1.5 feet in many areas. It has been choked with runoff and in spite of that, has served various functions for our community, that of floodwater control, a wildlife habitat and an aesthetic oasis.

 

Home Break-ins Remain Unsolved

Police Efforts Continue Full Force

For several months now the generally quiet and peaceful Great Neck community has lived under a cloud of worry and concern, as a string of residential break-ins leave people unsettled and police continuing a full-time, all encompassing search. Several cases of a man breaking into occupied homes, mainly in the areas near where the Village of Great Neck and Kings Point lie adjacent to one another, led to intensive searches and the resulting discovery (through DNA samples) police said, that the suspect is a dangerous man who was responsible for a vicious attack on a woman in Hempstead and the rape of a 2-year-old girl in Texas.

 

Great Neck’s Alexandra Woodhouse: A First-Hand Youth Perspective from Working in Egypt for the United Nations

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 25 February 2011 00:00
If one wanted to choose a young person to be a representative-at-large for what is best about America, Alexandra Woodhouse, 21, with her vitality, warmth, intelligence and strength, would be a good choice. For the last seven months, she worked in Egypt for the United Nations International Labor Organization and was so engaged in her work, that she had just signed a contract to take a leave of absence from Cornell and work for another six months there. She had fallen in love with the place, and had made many good friends, a number of whom took extraordinary risks to help her stay in Egypt during the days when she and her roommates were trapped in their apartment without food and then to leave, when the situation became too unpredictable and Americans were urged to evacuate.
 

LIRR/Colonial Road Bridge Renovations: No Smooth Ride Here

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Friday, 18 February 2011 00:00

Village of Thomaston Mayor Robert Stern is still in a quandary about proposed projects along the Long Island Rail Road track in Great Neck. While the mayor has spent the last 10 years (verified by Great Neck Record coverage) attempting to work with the MTA/LIRR to plan for a renovation of the well over-a-hundred-year-old Colonial Road bridge, he has had no success until late last year, when the railroad decided that this project could be incorporated into a project to build a second pocket track at the Great Neck station.

 

Please Shovel Your Nearest Fire Hydrant

Written by By Laurence Jacobs, 1st Assistant Chief Friday, 18 February 2011 00:00

After the recent snow, rain and ice, fire hydrants may be unavailable for firefighters in the event of a fire. Please take a few minutes to shovel in front of and around the fire hydrant closest to your home or business. In the event of fire in your neighborhood, the time saved could be vital.  In most cases in our area, hydrants are located within 500 feet of one another, either on your side of the street, or the opposite side.

 

Wary and Watchful in Great Neck: Reactions to Breakins!

Written by Carol Frank Friday, 11 February 2011 00:00

Although the unsolved home invasions in Great Neck have slacked off in the last few weeks, residents remain vigilant and concerned. Everyone has turned into amateur sleuths with numerous theories about the waxing and waning of the break-ins, where the person is hiding out, and how he could be caught. Some attribute the drop-off to the bitter weather; others believe the attempts are more tuned to some inner workings of a disturbed individual and everyone is disappointed that the massive efforts of the police have led to a dead end. While police have speculated that he may move on to some other community, everyone would feel better if he were caught and off the streets.
