Oyster Bay Hamlet Makes Tuesdays and Thursdays a Destination Magnet

The hamlet of Oyster Bay is getting some streetscape improvements. “An old-fashioned high wheel bike will be diplayed at Buckingham’s Variety store. I actually found it online but bought it through the Visentin Bike Shop on Pine Hollow Road. I wanted to keep it local,” said Walter Imperatore of Renaissance Properties. “I ordered it and picked it up on Wednesday, June 10, and put it in Buckingham’s. It will be displayed outside on Audrey Avenue.”
