Human Knots

It was another night of fun and learning for the bears of Williston Park’s Pack 311, who tied themselves into a human knot after learning how to tie some classic and handy scout knots. This den of third-graders meets several times a month to learn about the great outdoors and engage in activities that teach about core scout values, such as honesty, friendliness, and loyalty.

Mill Creek Residential, a multifamily apartment developer, announced last week that Hudson House, an age and income exclusive 36-apartment community, located at 104 Front St. in Mineola is open for occupancy. Senior affordable homes are eligible for applicants 55 years of age or older and households earning at or below 80 percent of the area median income for Nassau and Suffolk counties, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Hudson House has received 16 applications so far, according to Mill Creek Vice President Jamie Stover.

A few months ago, while returning to my car after attending a wake, I was surprised to catch a glimpse of something that immediately brought me back to my elementary school days. Directly in front of me stood a portion of the original concrete wall that had surrounded my alma mater.

 

In 1922, Corpus Christi Church purchased the Robert Graves estate on Searing Avenue and transformed its building into a parish school. It was a beautiful structure of Spanish-style architecture surrounded by the concrete wall, sporting huge ornate iron gates.
