Isaac D. Kremer has just announced that he will be leaving the Oyster Bay Main Street Association where he served as executive director to assume a new role with the leading historic preservation organization in Austin, Texas. He will be the preservation program manager for the Heritage Society of Austin.
Nancy Hussey called and identified the mystery picture in the Feb. 16 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It is the short street into the parking lot with the Earle Wightman on the right and the big new Oyster Bay Historical Society headquarters straight ahead. And all the shrubbery show the colonial gardens. They are lovely and they are tended by the North Shore Garden Club very diligently and patiently.”
Jeffery Gier, said, “It’s the Earle-Wightman House. I know because my dad’s a member of the Italian-American Club right by it.”
We are sure many of you recognized the mystery picture in the Feb. 9 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. As of now, Billy Minicozzi made a good guess, but it was not on the mark. On a sports note, he is looking forward to baseball as the Mets get ready for their spring training in Florida.

Hearts fluttering everywhere
Cupid strikes again.

“I believe it’s the cemetery directly by TR’s gravesite, and I was there. I live in East Norwich and have visited his gravesite and I recognized that railing,” said Anthony Leone, of the Feb. 3 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He’s been living there for three years in Norwich Greens and has done a complete renovation of his home. “It’s a real quiet area, and different from my condo in Little Neck, Queens, But my parents live in Locust Valley and my brother is Frank Leone,” he added. You will know Frank Leone as the Oyster Bay Historical Society board president.
“This looks like a view from Youngs Cemetery, where our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, is buried,” emailed Rich Reynolds of Niskayuna, NY.
Billy Minicozzi recognized the photograph as being of a cemetery – with all the headstones in the picture. “It’s either in Bayville near the laundromat or in Brookville,” he guessed. On a sports note he was looking forward to the Giants winning in the Super Bowl on Sunday – a wish that he was granted. On the other hand, he seemed more interested in the Mets going for their winter training in Florida.
Kerry Gillick-Goldberg of KGG Enterprises, LLC, who along with Harlan Friedman promotes the Oyster Festival, called to say that they are already involved in planning with the committee. “They are the best people to work with. They think of the Oyster Festival all year long on how to make it better than ever. They are the greatest,” she said.
She added, “We’ve been getting phone calls from sponsors to see if they will get the same spot as last year. And there are no complaints!
“We are starting the planning a month earlier than last year and will have a much stronger handle on it than our first year of promoting the festival. We are just so happy that everyone had such a positive experience and are ready to come back this year.
Gaby Treble, a student in the third grade at the Vernon School called to answer the mystery picture in the Jan. 19 Enterprise Pilot. [The Jan. 26 mystery picture is still a mystery.]
Gaby said, “I know where the last picture was taken, it’s a baseball and it’s right by the new soccer field. It’s by the bay, at Roosevelt Park and right next to the baseball field. I hope I’m right and I really think I am because I just had a soccer game there yesterday (Jan. 25) and the Lady Owls won.”
Tony Pilla reported that the mystery picture is again alive and well on the Internet. He said, “The Jan. 19 picture came through okay but I don’t have a good answer for it. Taking a wild guess, I would say it’s a part of Dodds & Eder’s complex.”
Well, he is amazingly just about right. In the photograph, to the right of the Village Greenery is the original Dodds & Eder location, before they expanded into it; created a wonderful barn-looking building on West Main Street; and eventually moved to the former A & P building on South Street, where they now thrive.
Jacki B. Gutman said in an email, “I have been a resident of East Norwich for over 40 years. I know the Jan. 12 mystery picture as I love to walk at Roosevelt Beach and I have been watching the renovations. This is the ball outside the new baseball field. There is also a large football there and a soccer ball. The Pearls by Jerelyn Hanrahan are now covered for the winter but they are nearby. The beach is just beautiful to utilize any time of year, and the community should see how terrifically it is now fixed up. Also the marine firehouse has a piece from the World Trade Center that is on view nearby in their memorial garden.”
We received an email from Tammy Moore telling about a project of her 12-year-old daughter, Emily Moore, who is having a slipper drive to support the Matthew Fetzer Foundation.
She said, “Emily is relying on the support of her friends, family and community members to achieve her goals in support of this wonderful foundation. The more people she can reach the better the results will be.” If you have any questions, you can reach Ms. Moore at 458-9325.
We emailed Tony Pilla the mystery picture from Jan. 12 and he said, “Thanks for the picture. I know it’s a baseball or softball, but I have no idea the significance of it or its location.”
While that is true, we are confident there are people in the community who do know where the photo was taken – during the Oyster Festival this year.
