Parking Solutions in Sight
The Main Street Association, the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Oyster Bay Civic Association have hired Chris Robinson to design a solution to the parking problems in the hamlet. "He is charged to come up with designs on redoing the parking lots in terms of making them more attractive; their walkability and answering the concept of 'eyes' of/on the parking lot, as suggested by Dan Burden of Walkable Communities, Inc.," said Katie Schwab, executive director of the Main Street Association of Oyster Bay. "Eyes" on the parking lot, is a concept offered by Mr. Burden that means there will be a community presence in the area, such as a small store or an area with tables and benches where people will be in the area, which acts as a deterent to crime.
St. Rocco: Best Fest Ever!
Walking down to the St. Rocco Feast on Sunday night, you could hear the whoops and yells from the children enjoying the rides. Couples were walking down to have dinner and some, like Kevin and Susan Gibson were returning home baked ziti and meatballs to enjoy eating at home.
Dive Into the Swim-A-Cross
This year, the annual Red Cross Swim-A-Cross will take on a special meaning. More than 150 swimmers are expected to participate and many will likely swim in memory of a loved one who lost their life during the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. ARC/Nassau encourages swimmers to take part in this meaningful September 11th pin.
The Oyster Bay Sea Scouts
Oyster Bay's own Sea Scouts Ship 12 won the Community Challenge Race in the third annual Bay Day Anything That Floats Race on June 1. The group is part of the Nassau County Sea Scouts Program and the local group is called Ship 12.
