Billy Minicozzi came through with a guess at the mystery picture in the Feb. 12 issue saying, "It's the Oyster Bay Rough Rider's Drill Team." It is a good guess but wait till you read the actual answer which we are sure we will receive! On a sports note, he said, "Hopefully the Jets will get a new quarterback for the next season. Brett Favre retired and his replacement is still to be found."
Edward B. (Woody) Ryder IV said, "I first thought it was Rick Robinson's junior high school class, but then I realized that Rick would never hold a banner backwards anymore than Dagmar would transpose a photograph."
Jessica Craft said, "I believe it's a picture of the old Baymen but I am not sure where the picture was taken."
Mystery Picture from Feb. 5 was answered by Elfia Presta who emailed, "The mystery picture that nobody has been getting I believe is in the Oyster Bay High School auditorium. It's the staircase to get onto the stage." She is absolutely correct.
Tom Gould, OBEN media specialist, said, "Wow, no one recognized our OBHS Performing Art Center on the right-hand side of the stage in the mystery photo. There's your answer if you want to put it to rest, but feel free to let the public struggle with it if it is more fun to perpetuate a stumper." (It is more fun to keep it going, then we do get great results!)
Isaac Kremer, Main Street Association executive director, emailed: "Not sure if someone has identified the Mystery Picture yet from Jan. 29. I know it to be the lovely doorway of the building across from Town Hall on Audrey Avenue. Modeled in the Prairie Style as popularized by Frank Lloyd Wright, windows of similar design may be seen in the living room from the Little House, Wayzata, Minnesota, as deconstructed, moved, and reconstructed in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art."
He certainly added to the information about the great doors for which we thank him. The doors are even more beautiful with the full information about them... and they are located on Audrey Avenue in Oyster Bay.
Another caller recognized the beauty of the doors in the Jan. 29 issue. "It's 72 Audrey Avenue where Audrey Avenue and Spring Street come together, across from town hall. I have the clock and jewelry shop on the other side of the intersection. They recently re-did the doors. I walk by every day for lunch and wow they have taste! I deal in antiques," said Jacques Chalikian. "The original door was contemporary, but these doors are beautiful and will look beautiful 100 years from now. We have a great deal of beauty in the hamlet already, but it is often hidden." - DFK
