The caller said there was a clam shack 10 feet away from the pier on the Western Waterfront. He wanted to know how it could have appeared without a DEC permit and said, “You can’t build within 400 yards of the water. There it is, with 10 picnic tables and umbrellas.”
Gregory Adami called to identify the mystery picture in the April 19 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. Greg guessed it was Buckingham’s, which is an incorrect answer. He was however on approximately the same street.
A few minutes later, his wife Joan Adami called with the correct answer. She said, “It’s Nobman’s window. I could tell because of all the glass.”
Mike Rich correctly identified the April 12 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot as, “John Specce’s office.” Correct! It is his landmark building on the corner of East Main Street and Pearl Street.

Former Oyster Bay Town Councilman Tom Hogan, Esq., identified the mystery mystery photo from the March 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. It was an especially hard mystery photograph and he vowed to identify it in last week’s column.
He called to say, “This is Tom Hogan. The past week’s mystery picture is the air vent and clean out for the septic system of 24 Audrey Avenue.” Now there is a man who knows his architecture. He is responsible for several wonderful buildings in Locust Valley on Birch Hill Road, near the rail road crossing.
We are always in such a hurry; we forget to see the beauty that is all around us.
Lifelong Oyster Bay resident Mike Rich came to the rescue and identified the mystery-mystery picture in the March 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. Mike said, ‘It’s the top of the senior citizen’s center. I think it was designed by Ralph Ottaiano.” He is correct, although the current name of the organization is the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay.
Part of the fun is recognizing the students who have already appeared in the pages of the Enterprise Pilot. That is what is so great about living in a small town, where you recognize the names of the children and instantly recall details about their parents, and sometimes, grandparents.
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.
