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.
The New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District miscalculated more than $8 million in expenses from 2008-13, creating illusory budget surpluses (about $6.3 million), according to a report by New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office.
The financial report said New Hyde Park transferred money to reserves and appropriated unexpended surplus funds to reduce the district’s tax levy. According to the comptroller’s office, more than $3 million of the district’s fund balance appropriated over the five-year period was not used.
“These practices gave the appearance that the district’s fund balance was within the legal limit when in effect it exceeded the limit each year,” the report stated. “We also found that the district routinely funded its retirement contribution reserve with operating surpluses at year end, instead of funding the reserve through the annual budget process, which would have been more transparent to taxpayers.”
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation recently announced that toxic chemicals were found at a lumber yard on Falmouth Avenue in New Hyde Park. The DEC said in a notice distributed through its superfund program that operations at the site “have resulted in contamination of soil, groundwater and soil vapor at levels exceeding applicable standards.”
The DEC said significant contamination remains at the site but “does not appear to be migrating from the site in the groundwater.”
The site, owned by Seaboard Estates Inc., is located at 1801 Falmouth Ave. and sits a stone’s throw from New Hyde Park Memorial High School and Michael J. Tully Park. Seaboard did not return calls for comment.
Speaking for a group of New Hyde Park residents, Santo Cipolla is asking the Sewanhaka Central High School District to eliminate a 28-year-old policy that allows one community to attend any of the five district high schools.
“It was a policy that was created to desegregate South Floral Park and a portion of Floral Park called Jamaica Square,” Cipolla said at a school board meeting last week. “It is our belief that there is not equal access to the schools and violates the equal protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.”
Students from the Village of South Floral Park entering seventh grade or who are attending the district for the first time, have a one-time choice of New Hyde Park, Sewanhaka, Floral Park, H. Frank Carey and Elmont Memorial high schools, according to a school board policy, “Students 5110.”
The word “veloce” in Italian means quick. Just like the word, the mobile pizza setup, Pizza Veloche, provides fresh food for catered events.
Instead of making the pizza inside and serving through a window, counters are set up in front of the truck, and the pizzas are made and served while the customers are watching.
The owner of Pizza Veloche is also the owner of Gino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria in New Hyde Park. Owner Alfredo Vitolo wanted to expand his business with unique off-premise catering.
Gino’s has other locations, in Port Washington and Bayside.
Hurricane Arthur was no match for the water wars that emerged with the New Hyde Park and Garden City Park fire department along the route of the 16th annual Fourth of July parade in Stewart Manor on
July 4. Despite ominous-looking clouds and cooler than usual temps, spectators stood ready with water balloons, Super Soakers, buckets and garden hoses, as they awaited the onslaught from the many fire departments who participated in the parade.
After previously announcing that the two parties had arrived at an impasse in their negotiations, the Herricks Board of Education revealed at its July 1 meeting they had finally reached an agreement with the teacher’s association for a new four-year contract.
The new deal runs from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2018.
Board of Education President James Gounaris noted the deal had been struck after an intense session of negotiations attended by both parties that stretched overnight at times.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer is asking National Grid to notify customers in advance when utility workers will visit the home. The call comes in the wake of a string of deception burglaries, in which suspects posed as utility workers to enter homes. Three senior citizens, in Herricks, Westbury and Syosset were victims from June 19-20. These three communities, Schumer said, should be first in line for improved alert systems.
“The recent burglaries demonstrate that more must be done by National Grid to ensure homeowners know exactly who to expect at their door for an in-home technician visit, and at what time,” Schumer stated at a press conference in Herricks last week.
