Mel Warren Knows Oyster Bay!

Melvin Warren called to identify the Mystery Picture in the Nov. 27 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “Holy mackerel. I haven’t seen it for such a long time. It’s Oyster Bay High School, vintage 1920. How do I know - I used to climb through that school and go up to that tower and watch for planes during the war – World War II.

“And there was a machine shop there, during the war. The school was located on School Street and Weeks Avenue, in back of the new church, on the corner of Anstice and Weeks. There is a school building behind the new church, the St. Dominic Elementary School. That was an elementary school when I went to school in the ’30s.

In talking about poverty and hunger in Oyster Bay, Barbara Rakusin, executive director of Youth and Family Counseling Agency of Oyster Bay-East Norwich made a very pertinent comment.

“Its amazing that all the organizations collaborate and work together. These are informal arrangements that have been made over many, many years. It’s wonderful,” she said.

Editorial: The Economic Argument For Preservation

Hopefully you will have had some time to read about the Trousdell house and the campaign to preserve it, and the open space around it. Now owned by the North Shore Land Alliance, it is slated for sale and to become a bed & breakfast if possible.

Unfortunately, the hoped-for buyer is not in the market at this time. The NSLA stepped forward to preserve the open space that could have become a subdivision – with the house demolished and several homes built on the 3.5 acres. It is in a great location with views of Oyster Bay Harbor.

Virginia Slutter Knows Oyster Bay

Virginia Slutter recognized the mystery photograph in the Nov. 10 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the construction site and rent-a-fence with sandbags on it – at the entrance to Roosevelt Park. The booth is on the right hand side; and the construction vehicles are behind the rent-a-fence that is held down by the sand bags.”

She is correct!

Last week we attended a Kristallnacht service at the Oyster Bay Jewish Center. It commemorates that night when Nazi Germany authorized a night of criminal mischief against their Jewish population. Non-Jewish neighbors were encouraged to break the windows of their Jewish neighbors homes and businesses. It is a terrible event when you think of what that would mean if it were you and your own neighbors.

Somehow it is a lesson we have to keep learning considering the violence that happened last week in Brooklyn where swastikas were written on cars and benches and automobiles were burned. It appears the world has to be reminded of what happens when a country authorizes hatred against others.

Lots to Think About in the Mystery Picture

We got our answers to the Nov. 3 Mystery Picture in the Enterprise Pilot on the run – so to speak – at the Oyster Bay Historical Society Harvest Moon fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Daniel Walker said, “Can I just tell you what the mystery picture is? It’s my brother Steve Walker and the Oyster Bay Community Band playing at the 9/11 ceremony in front of the Atlantic Steamer Marine Facility.”

Double Header for Virginia Slutter

Virginia Slutter called to identify last week’s mystery picture from Oct. 13. She said, “Last week’s picture was of the gravestones on the Christ Church property. They are in the front of the church outside of the building near the walkway. The other picture (Oct. 20) is the fireboat at the Oyster Festival.”

She is absolutely correct. Especially about the fireboat the John J. Harvey. The fireboat was spraying out water from their cannons on a regular basis. The photo was taken from across the new multi-playing field at TR Park.
