There are more stories than my fingers can type so next week’s issue will be full of fascinating stories about Oyster Bay like a look into the new renovations and entrance proposed for Theodore Roosevelt Park.
Billy Minicozzi said the mystery picture in the March 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot was of a window on top of a building. It was a good guess, but earns “no cigar.” On a sports note, he was glad that the Jets have gotten Tim Tebow to play for them.
Belle Santora said, looking at her own picture in the Life Enrichment Center article in the March 22 issue, “I’m still a party girl.” That was the caption Gail Speranza, LEC executive, director put under her picture for the senior citizen center column.
Gaby Treble called to identify the March 15 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. “It’s by the bay, if you drive past it, it’s the dock by the road,” said the third-grade student at the Vernon School. She added, “The location is close to the WaterFront Center. I go to the Bay and ride by on my bike.” FYI: She is reading the book Holy Enchillada.
Gaby is correct, the photo is of the area on the former Jakobson Shipyard that was turned into a beautiful waterside area with benches and a dock for access to the water.
It is about relocating the pedestrian entrance to Theodore Roosevelt Park at the end of Maxwell Avenue and moving it to the north end of Audrey Avenue at what is expected to become a railroad plaza in front of the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum.
John Bruckner, Jr. called to identify the mystery picture from the March 1, Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s Meyerdierks Country Store on Route 25A, and 106 in East Norwich.” Mr. Bruckner is the Oyster Bay High School fencing coach. He was pleased to see the coverage his team received recently in the newspaper. Tom Gould, OB-EN school district media specialist, wrote a wonderful story of how well the fencing team is doing.
Mr. Bruckner said he first saw the building when he worked at the Old BethpageVillage Restoration. “I worked at that general store, Layton’s. It was fun and interesting learning about history and knowing that the building came from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich area.” He said he recognized the photo three weeks ago and finally decided, “I’m going to call.”
The supervisor said they don’t actually recycle the cans and bottles they collect, but crush and compact them for easy traveling to a landfill.
Tom Hogan, Esq. called to identify the mystery photo in the Feb. 23 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s the Gallo family’s very wonderful memorial to the World Trade Center. It is located in Locust Valley, behind Britton’s Hardware and next to Thomas Park.”
He also made a guess at the March 1 mystery picture, saying it was the Matinecock Lodge. While the era is sort of close, it is not a match.
Billy Minicozzi made a good guess on the Feb. 23 mystery picture noting the patriotic flag pole. On a sports note he said, Jeremy Lin is making a star of himself. His Harvard background is a plus. Billy is looking forward to the Mets and baseball spring training which has just begun.
We began the process of seeing what could be eliminated, shortened, and made more concise. Yet, is that what to do with a story of a woman of such distinction? Not really. She deserves a book, not a mention.
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.
