TR Waterfront Walkway Envisioned
Architect Joseph Reilly spoke enthusiastically on his vision of Theodore Roosevelt Park to a rapt audience at the Main Street Association's annual meeting held at the Doubleday Babcock Senior Center on Oct. 20. His view begins at the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum located at the upper end of Audrey Avenue. Imagine the area being paved over and the small road to Maxwell Avenue closed. Imagine a walkway crossing the railroad tracks and heading diagonally toward the marina. The walkway would join the downtown area to the waterfront with trees, benches and historic antique lights on one side. On the other would be kiosks giving facts about TR to visitors as they walk along the path - like the Freedom Trail in Boston. Half way to the marina, hidden off the walk with trees and landscaping would be the carousel. (See his drawing of the site.)
