Manhasset Mourns Trade Center Dead

Manhasset Unites in Grieving
Sometimes Manhasset is accused of lacking an identity. We are an amalgam of incorporated villages, unincorporated areas, civic associations, clubs and organizations. Some of our children go to Manhasset Public Schools, some to St. Mary's and some to private schools. We share the 11030 zip code and the Manhasset Public Library. But this week showed how much more than that we are. We are a community in which there are many large families and, as one adult who grew up here said this week, "If you're one of 10 children, you know everybody, and I mean everybody in town." As another young man who lost friends in the Sept. 11 disaster said, "even if somebody wasn't in your class, if he went to another school, he was on your CYO basketball team or your PBC baseball team and you knew him or you knew his brother."
