“I believe it’s the cemetery directly by TR’s gravesite, and I was there. I live in East Norwich and have visited his gravesite and I recognized that railing,” said Anthony Leone, of the Feb. 3 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He’s been living there for three years in Norwich Greens and has done a complete renovation of his home. “It’s a real quiet area, and different from my condo in Little Neck, Queens, But my parents live in Locust Valley and my brother is Frank Leone,” he added. You will know Frank Leone as the Oyster Bay Historical Society board president.
“This looks like a view from Youngs Cemetery, where our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt, is buried,” emailed Rich Reynolds of Niskayuna, NY.
Billy Minicozzi recognized the photograph as being of a cemetery – with all the headstones in the picture. “It’s either in Bayville near the laundromat or in Brookville,” he guessed. On a sports note he was looking forward to the Giants winning in the Super Bowl on Sunday – a wish that he was granted. On the other hand, he seemed more interested in the Mets going for their winter training in Florida.We received another email saying, “I believe the Feb. 3 picture is Young’s Cemetery in Oyster Bay Cove,” said Leven Ashby of Hampton, VA – correctly.
Kyle Whitelaw, a junior at Oyster Bay High School found the location of the mystery picture in the Jan. 26 Enterprise Pilot. “It’s the Oyster Bay High School Library,” he said. He helped describe the globe, which is sort of silverish and has the continents etched on the surface.
Kyle’s favorite subject at school is science. That bodes well for the country!
We are happy to say that the mystery pictures are all identified, especially the one Mr. Whitelaw called about. The globe is lovely in person. If you attend an Oyster Bay-East Norwich School Board meeting, you will see it on display in the library.
Keep looking around Oyster Bay, you never know where the next mystery picture will be from.
