This will not be the opening of the new multisport field, it was the only place in the township that Craig Pinto could use for his event, without displacing other teams already using the town’s sports locations.
Eileen Aliani, secretary of the Committee for the Beautification of Oyster Bay identified the mystery picture in the Sept. 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot and said, “It’s taken at the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony in Oyster Bay. I saw all those feet and everybody in suits and I knew.”
Calling from the Summit Street Deli, Colleen Bagan put her answer a little differently, saying, “Is that the firemen at the Memorial?” “Perfect,” we said.
Ms. Sehlmeyer wrote in her letter to the editor, “As soon as I saw the Explore LI cover story “Fast Food. The voracious world of competitive eating [Sept. 13), I knew I’d be writing this letter. I am repeatedly disgusted when I see stories on this most repulsive ‘sport’.”
The delightful Belle Santora called about the picture in the Sept. 15 issue. She said, “I just turned the page of my copy of the Enterprise Pilot and saw the mystery picture. I was there the day this man was painting at Beekman Beach. Arthur and I were talking to him.”
She added, “I knew the picture last week but I didn’t get around to calling but that’s all right - other people got it.”
Paul Keller of Bayville identified the mystery picture in the Sept. 8 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s the rear of the building on Audrey Avenue and Spring Street. It is opposite Al Dente which is across the street.”

The Atlantic Steamer Fire Company arranged to obtain a piece of the World Trade Tower which is now in a beautiful memorial garden next to their marine facility at the Theodore Roosevelt Park. It is a wonderful addition to Oyster Bay and for the world. You must go see it.
Belle Santora identified the Sept. 1, mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the East Norwich sign on Route 25A.” As for the Aug. 25 photo, she said, “It could be anywhere.”
Interestingly, we didn’t use the photo after it was taken because we thought it was too obvious a location. Now we see we were wrong, but we are still hopeful to have it identified.
“Last year I ran the New York City Marathon. And wow what an incredible experience. I had so much fun; I decided I must do it again! I have decided again this year to run for a charity, after looking through the many charities you can run for I carefully chose Fred’s Team.
During the fall there was some concern on how the town’s plans for new multi-sports field was going to impact the Oyster Festival, but as things developed there was optimism and finally joy in the voices of the presenters. Things were going to work as you can see the way Len Rothberg expressed it.
