Paige Dawson was the first person to call to correctly identify the mystery photograph in the Aug. 20 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “It’s Planting Fields, the mansion. Oh, how ‘loverly’ that I got that!” she said.
Ms. Dawson, who regularly volunteers at Cruise Night said, “We had a really phenomenal car show on Aug. 18. We had the School for Rock performing and had an awful lot of their students and relatives and friends there. It was a really huge night on Audrey Avenue.
Let’s put it simply. We do need the fields. In a way the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park is again – open space – in a way, just ready for a developers shovel.
But the Town’s proposed plan for TR Park puts the sports fields in the correct area of the park.
Dorothy Titus recognized the dock in the Aug. 13 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “It’s at Sagamore Yacht Club with the camera looking at Mr. Dolan’s boat, the Knickerbocker, docked at the Oyster Bay Marine Center next door where the boat from Royal Pains (TV series) was docked just a couple of weeks ago: it’s the best harbor in the Island.”
Mike Polansky of the Greater Long Island Runners Club called to say, “I was running in Oyster Bay last Sunday, [Aug. 9] and saw so many people on bikes and training for the Triathlon. They waved and said, ‘We’ll see you in a few weeks.’ The Triathlon is bringing in a great deal of people to Oyster Bay where the start and finish of the race is at Firemen’s Field. And, it’s great for business. People stop at Taby’s to eat and visit the hamlet.”
Belle Santora called to identify the Aug. 6 mystery picture. She said, “Today’s is the Mill Pond where the volunteers were cleaning up. Thank goodness I’m right; I don’t want to disappear from the paper!”
With the editor back from two weeks of vacation we have several mystery pictures to solve.
Barbara Sullivan Parry called to identify the mystery picture of July 16 saying, “It is taken from the parking lot behind Taby’s and Buckingham’s, facing the parking area behind the buildings on the end of South Street.” Right!
Just two weeks after the Enterprise Pilot printed a community appeal story about the historic Octagon Hotel it was vandalized. Funding was needed for an architectural review of the basement restoration, a process that would add to the building’s desirability for future preservation funds.
The damage occurred Friday night, July 31, or early Saturday morning.
Since 1928, George DeForest Brush’s painting of a Matinecock Indian has hung on the walls of the Matinecock bank in Matinecock, Locust Valley. The painting was commissioned by Winslow Pierce, a founder of the Matinecock Bank and the son-in-law of Mr. Brush, and formally given to the bank in 1938. The Matinecock Bank building now houses the Matinecock/Locust Valley branch of the Bank of America.
When the community calls, we respond. This time The East Norwich Fire Company called, and the community responded.
It was a very moving experience to see all the cars lined up at the intersection of Northern Boulevard 25A and Route 106 with their windows down, arms extended out with change and dollars in hand. “Fill the Boot” fundraising event held this past weekend by The East Norwich Fire Company for fire fighter Gary Wessel was very successful.
The editor is away this week so there will be no answers in the July 30 issue of the Enterprise Pilot for the mystery picture, but please call and leave your answer on our voice mail at 403-5104 and when we return from vacation we will give your answers to identify the photos in the Aug. 6 column.
