LIRR Station Sports Blue Bonnet
Snow delayed the work, but on Wednesday, Dec. 4, the Long Island Rail Road took action to preserve the Oyster Bay railroad station house. They put up a blue plastic tarpaulin over the roof to preserve it from the effects of inclement weather until needed repairs can be made. Who will do those repairs is still being considered. The MTA is in the process of giving the building to the Town of Oyster Bay so neither organization is prepared to do the repairs as of now.
