“That’s the building where they repair the wooden boats,” said Belle Santora, just as we were finishing a “mystery-mystery” picture column. She is correct.
We were just going to say, “In this case we understand that it is a difficult photograph to identify in the Oct. 11 issue of the Enterprise Pilot, but there are clues there. No mystery picture goes in without some way for a person to have a good way to guess what it is, to give those little gray cells a workout, as Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poiret would say.”
How can you write about something, over and over again? The reason is that things are never the same. Each happening is unique unto itself and tells another story.
We’ve written about the Oyster Festival since the second or third year. We remember a photo taken by then-Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot editor Susan Francy-Jenkins of Irwin Tantleff, then owner of the Foodtown in Oyster Bay when he ran in a race held at the opening of the first festival. Today the Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor’s 5-K race has taken that slot.
Billy Minicozzi said the mystery picture in the Oct. 4 issue of the Enterprise Pilot is of the parking lot at TR beach. He is correct. On a sports note, Billy said he is glad the referees are back in football. “They call them zebras,” he said, because of their striped jerseys. And as a current news item he added, “ The Bayville Haunted House begins on Friday, Oct. 12.”
If you haven’t seen the work of the Bayville firefighters and friends as they create a haunted house, do take the time to go and visit it. It is worth your time.
We hope you have read this week’s Oyster Festival special. We think it looks just great. We have to thank the Oyster Festival promoter Kerry Gillick-Goldberg for all her great help in providing the photographs and copy. It was a fun section to edit.
Thanks also go to our great sales force at Anton Newspapers and especially Angela Feeley who represents Oyster Bay.
Gregory Adami called to identify the photograph in the Sept. 27 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said the mystery picture is, “A bunch of chairs set out for the memorial at the 9/11 area at the entrance to the Western Waterfront area and Beekman Beach. There used to be a boat across from there. The WaterFront Center is going to re-do it. The building is where they recently restored the Christeen.”
He is of course, correct. The Ida May is currently being restored in Building J on West End Avenue. It will be open for viewing during the Oyster Festival. Drop by and see your friendly volunteers at work.
In 2015, as the restoration of Sagamore Hill is completed, as part of the project, the hamlet of Oyster Bay will have new signage telling visitors about Theodore Roosevelt-related locations in this area.
Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, the home of Theodore Roosevelt and a National Park Service site, has awarded a contract in the amount of $223,400 to plan, design and produce 35 new outdoor exhibits. The new exhibits, also called “waysides,” replace old and outdated ones dating back to the 1980s.
The mystery photograph in the Sept. 20 issue of the Enterprise Pilot was identified by Emma Guevara. She said, “The picture is behind the Earle-Wightman house on Summit Street.” She is correct.
Billy Minicozzi recognized the mystery picture as the car show down by Taby’s diner. He said, “They serve the best hamburgers on Long Island.”
Gregory Adami said, “It was taken at one of the car shows on Audrey Avenue by a person standing by the new town hall because I can see the Buckingham’s awning that is hanging over the sidewalk.”
Elfia Presta of East Norwich had one small request for the Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot, this Monday, Sept. 17. That was to remind people about cancer and the need for a cure. Her prayer was, “Dear God, I pray for a cure for cancer. Amen.” She hoped we would pass along that prayer.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the American Cancer Society is gearing up for a walk on Jones Beach.
