Meghan Fitzpatrick was the first caller to identify the mystery picture. She said, "It's the Harmony Heights School in East Norwich."
"The picture was taken behind Harmony Heights," said Jason Shoemaker, in 9th grade at Oyster Bay High School.
Billy Minicozzi recognized the mystery picture as a school building. He said, on a sports note: "Yankee catcher Jorge Possada broke his nose. I hope he'll be back wining in a week or two."
Brenda Downing called and said, "Richard and I know the mystery picture. It's the Harmony Heights new addition and the picture was taken from Vernon Avenue. It was the old Mabel D. Fox School. I went there, when it was the Walnut Avenue school and she was the principal. My father Donald Jarvis had her as a teacher."
Roseann Wessel, a new member of the community called to identify the mystery Picture. She said it's Harmony Heights. She said, "We are new to the area and I remember when we were driving around looking at houses I saw the construction going on."
The next caller said, "The mystery picture is looking at the Harmony Heights School on Vernon Avenue," said Rebecca Orlich, a student at St. Dominic's.
A mystery- mystery picture fan said, "The mystery picture is the Harmony Heights School. It's located between Vernon and Walnut Avenues and Muttontown Lane. That is the new edition that was just completed this past winter."
Jillian Boccia said, "I saw the picture and I know what it is. It's the back of the school on Vernon and Muttontown Lane in East Norwich. Bye."
There were several e-mail answers for last week's picture. They include a shout from Peter Higgins who said, "It's been a while, maybe it's the old Nassau Trust Bank entrance from South Street?" Correct.
Pete Ceglia gave a good guess via e-mail, that it was the house next to Raynham Hall Museum.
"This week's photo (of May 6) depicts the driveway of the bank opposite Bernstein's. I used that short cut many a day, on my way to Oyster Bay High School," said Regina Brandt Rettig.
