A Vintage Tavern In New Hyde Park

The Walk Street Tavern is a staple in the Village of New Hyde Park, the building having been around since the mid 1880s. Once used as a general store, an inn and a post office, the building is now a popular bar and restaurant that is considered a community favorite.

 

“This building has been a fixture in the village forever,” said Walk Street Tavern owner Jimmy Tubbs. “It was used as a post office for many years in the 20th century, a bar up until 1943 and opened as Henry’s Inn in 1971, before Walk Street took over in 2008.”

 

Tubbs and partner Robert Kloepfer Jr. renovated the building in 2008, seeking to carry on the building’s history as a place residents could go to relax and grab a bite to eat.

 

“We are a restaurant with a family style pub atmosphere,” said Tubbs. “We have a full menu with daily dinner specials and pub type food and also have two private dining rooms for private parties and a huge outdoor dining area and beer garden.”

 

Walk Street offers up a reasonably priced selection of hamburgers, wraps, salads and appetizers on their menu. Prices range from $7 for appetizers such as chicken wings to $20 for a porterhouse steak with all the fixings. They also offer a children’s menu for the little customers.

 

If you’re a sports fan, you’ll love the seven flat screen TV’s in the restaurant’s main room. You can come down and watch almost any sporting event in high definition alongside other loyal sports fans.

Friday and Saturday nights are exciting at Walk Street. Bands and individual performers entertain the crowd with live music ranging from old time rock and roll to today’s current hits. shows usually begin at 9 p.m.

Walk Street features a jazz jam session on the last Tuesday of each month, a big hit amongst bar goers,  

 

Tubbs is a Mineola resident who works as a realtor with Laffey Real Estate in Williston Park. He has been involved with restaurant operations for many years, working at one time as a busboy, waiter and bartender.

 

“I just want people to come down, have a bite to eat and enjoy themselves in a comfortable setting in a place that has a lot of historical value here in New Hyde Park,” said Tubbs.

 

Walk Street Tavern is at 1218 Jericho Tpke. in New Hyde Park. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday and 12 to 8 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call 516-216-1610.

Last year Manhasset Park District Commissioner Mark Sauvigne was thinking about running for the office of Manhasset-Lakeville Fire & Water District Commissioner, but he sensed the timing wasn’t right. The district covers Manhasset and parts of Great Neck and north New Hyde Park. Commissioner terms are for three years.

 

“About a year ago I was approached by various members of the Manhasset Lakeville Fire Department, asking me if I would be interested in running for the office of the Fire/ Water

Commissioner,” said Sauvigne. “Although I was honored to be considered, I wasn’t sure the timing was right, so I put the decision off for a year. In the meantime, when the communication tower controversy occurred in October of 2013, I knew it was time to get involved.”

When it comes to fitness, getting off the couch is half the battle.

 

Plenty of people start each day with the best of intentions, but plans to eat healthy and get to the gym often fall by the wayside with even the most shoddy of excuses. But a New

Hyde Park native is bringing physical fitness to the front door with a mobile, personal traning regimen focusing on individualized one-on-one fitness, group sessions and corporate fitness.

The students of Herricks High School were treated to a “Blast from the Past” as the Herricks High School Class of 1964 during this year’s Homecoming celebration.  Approximately 60 members of the class of 1964 arrived at the high school on homecoming day for a tour of their alma mater.  Most of these alumni had not been back to the high school since graduating 50 years ago.

 

All were impressed with the changes that have taken place and with the friendly demeanor of our high school students. One alumnus became teary eyed when he ventured out into the courtyard.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him.
