News

New Hyde Park resident Tom Madera, of 7th Avenue, doesn’t want another car crashing into his house and hopes a Nassau County plan to install traffic calming features along Covert Avenue will prevent another incident.

 

“Anything would help, even if it makes noise like rubber strips along the road,” he said. “I can assure that it doesn’t make as much noise as a screeching Cadillac which has decided to reorganize the front of your house. That happened two years ago.”

 

The project would run down Covert Avenue from Jericho Turnpike in New Hyde Park, south to Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont. The project could cost more than $250,000, according to Aryeh Lemberger, unit head for Nassau County traffic engineers. He expects the plan would begin in 2015.

No matter what, one thing is certain—there’s no better way to spend a sticky summer evening on Long Island than camped out at an exciting outdoor concert.

 

Dazzling a crowd at Memorial Park on Albert Street in New Hyde Park that just seemed to grow and grow as the evening went on, the talented foursome of Marty G and The G Men pumped out some of the most toe-tappin’ hits of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s...plus a few original tunes for good measure, on Wednesday, July 9.
