Reginald Butt Knows Oyster Bay

Reginald Butt called to identify the mystery picture in the March 31 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s taken inside the American Legion Hall. It looks as if it is probably set up for a Memorial Day service. I know because I am the Past Commander of the Post and I set up the Memorial Day Program.” He is of course correct!

Frank Zangari called to say, “It’s Post No. 4’s Legion Hall. I belong to it.” Mr. Zangari served in the Korean War.
 

More Tears Than Soup

The hamlet of Oyster Bay is really coming along. The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce deserves some thanks. Driving down Pine Hollow Road on Saturday, we saw the little trees along the curb. The trees were planted by the Town of Oyster Bay as a result of the chamber requesting them. The trees  are a welcome addition to the scene.

It is nice to think that in the future – we hope it is the near future - the asphalt sidewalks will be replaced by concrete and maybe more trees and brickwork. 

 

Safety Laws Are a Good Thing

In a way the announcment below is serendipitous. The Oyster Bay Civic Association and the East Norwich Civic Association have been working together to promote traffic safety in this area.

The police, we are being told are giving out tickets locally for speeding. The county has another initiative that should help the situation: reminding motorists about safety and school buses.

Mystery Picture Still a Mystery

The March 17 mystery picture is still a mystery. Our hint is – the fronds in the photograph are not Hawaiian palm trees. 

Billy Minicozzi did call with a guess. On a sport’s note he said the St. John’s University basketball team will not be making it to the NACCA. 

 

Support Your Civic Association

At first we heard that the Oyster Bay Civic Association was hosting a meeting on the future of Snouder’s Corner Drugstore on Thursday, March 24. They had invited the owners, Eugene King and Frank Genovese along with a representative of the Snouder’s Corner Drug Store Foundation for an update on the status of the site and the Foundation’s efforts. 

Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict the discussion has been cancelled as has the meeting itself. Instead, the OBCA will again host its next meeting with members of the OBEN school board talking about the budget on April 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Italian-American Club on Summit Street.

Six Degrees Away from TR

It was just wonderful to learn that the Trousdell house, a.k.a. Hillside, has been saved from the developers demolition ball. A house on Anstice Street recently “disappeared into a hole.” Not every house, it appears can be saved.

The Trousdell house was saved for several reasons: it has open space to be preserved; it has architectural significance; it is connected to the history of Oyster Bay; and to the nation in terms of the life of James A. Roosevelt. He was a member of the Sanitary Commission that became what is now known as the Red Cross.

Joe Siciliano  Knows Oyster Bay

Joe Siciliano called to say correctly that he knew the location of the March 3 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “The location is near the post office and Café al Dente in Oyster Bay. Also, the street signs says Shore Road and Spring Street, but I didn’t notice until I looked at the picture again.”
