Letter: Residents Must Step Up Now

With the Village of New Hyde Park’s Operation Main Street in its final phase, its obvious they have a plan intact: to bolster the local economy and aesthetics of this small one square mile village. However, a village economy and strength is only as strong as the community around it. New Hyde park is on a major upswing, but we aren’t there yet. Residents must spend time and money in the village.

 

Whether it’s buying a bagel, grabbing a slice of pizza, or dropping off dry cleaning, bringing the kids to the park.  Patronizing local business is the core to a strong community.  It allows the local businesses to ‘give back’.  

 

This is a fact. My wife sits on the board at the New Hyde Park Road School PTA; whenever we fundraise, we turn to local shops to offer items, or gift cards, etc. In return, the expectation is that they will be recognized by other potential patrons. It’s an awesome cycle that works. And that’s just part of it.  

 

As for aestetics; for those that find it necessary to park your car on your lawn, please don’t. Your lawn represents you as a person, family, homeowner. It instills pride in what we base our livelihood on. Seeing a vehicle parked on grass is highly distasteful, as well as against village code.  

 

Just please be reminded each day that, at an impressive 19 miles from Manhattan, and a 32-minute train ride, the Village of New Hyde Park is the closest neighborhood from the city that is not the city.  It is our job to protect that valuable incentive.

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said. 

The Sewanhaka Indians relied heavily on its offense in the first two victories and head coach George Kasimatis relies on one player to set the tone for his group; senior, running back Brenton Mighty. 

 

Mighty is versatile as a running back, as he possesses the ability to run hard between the tackles, lower his shoulder and run into the defender, or run to the outside and break one deep. He also has good hands and is utilized by quarterback Elijah Tracey, as a receiver out of the backfield. 

 

“He makes such a difference in the run game,” said Kasimatis. “Teams have to respect that and it opens up the pass and the possibility for a lot of play action passes.”
