Gaby Treble Knows Oyster Bay

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.

Mystery Picture of March 8 a Mystery
John Bruckner, Jr. Knows Oyster Bay

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.”

Editorial: Peace Not ‘A Piece’

As we stood watching the printer spew out the many pages of the obituary story about Oyster Bay-born Marie Colvin, we wondered if we had written too much.

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.

 

Editorial: That Quintessential Ingredient

Friday, 24 February 2012 00:00
It was a great relief when the Main Street Association announced four years ago that they had chosen Isaac Kremer as their new executive director because he had a preservation background. The MSA was organized in Oyster Bay after people attended the National Preservation Society annual meetings and took hold of its concept of and the Main Street Association view of improving the downtown areas of America as revitalization through preservation. It is improving what is good, great and historic from our past and doing a little housekeeping to bring it into the present.

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.
