Oyster Bay Carousel Begins Bumpy Ride
The Oyster Bay Main Street Association announced the recent formation of a Carousel Committee, co-chaired by board members Jerritt Gluck and Mike Rich with Honorary Chair Grammy Award winning entertainer and local resident Billy Joel. The committee is proposing taking Nassau County's Nunley carousel, now housed in a hangar at Mitchel Field and bringing it to Oyster Bay. MSA Executive Director Joan Mahon said, "Based on recommendations put forth by Dan Burden of Walkable Communities, Inc., members of the Oyster Bay Main Street Association started looking into ways to connect the waterfront with the downtown. One of the ways to revitalize this area is to increase the number of yearround activities for families within the community. By focusing on the connection between Roosevelt Memorial Park and the extension of Audrey Avenue leading to the park, quality of life and security issues can be addressed. A committee has been formed to explore the possibility of bringing an antique carousel to the downtown area as a way to offer a family centered activity and create a clearly visible destination near the water."
