Toxic Waste Found In New Hyde Park

Written by Rich Forestano Thursday, 17 July 2014 00:00

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.


Resident Questions 28-Year-Old School Policy

Written by Rich Forestano Wednesday, 16 July 2014 00:00

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.” 


A Quick Slice From The Pizza Truck

Written by Paige Mcatee Saturday, 12 July 2014 00:00

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.

Schumer To National Grid: ‘Give Notice’

Written by Rich Forestano, Thursday, 10 July 2014 00:00

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.

Lever Voting Machines Hang On

Written by Wendy Karpel Kreitzman Friday, 04 July 2014 00:00

Hope springs eternal for local municipalities that have been fighting for permission to continue using the reliable “old-fashioned” mechanical lever voting machines. The new electronic machines that Congress mandated for federal elections a few years ago would be extremely costly for villages, school districts and special districts to purchase or rent. In fact, in some cases it might be impossible for a small village to even rent a new electronic voting machine. 


Republican New York State Senator Jack Martins and Democratic State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel successfully joined forces to push through legislation that will now allow villages, school districts and special districts to continue using mechanical voting machines for an additional year. Twice before the two legislators worked together to push through similar extensions.
