Development Plans for Historic Site Nearing Completion
Once a bustling industrial site, the 11-acre property at the tip of Manhasset Isle in Manorhaven usually referred to as "Thypin Steel" is now home only to a variety of birds and wild plants. When current plans are approved and implemented, a 96-unit gated, cluster housing development will be built on the site.
On The Bay
Move over Punxsutawney Phil. Here in Manhasset Bay we have better predictions for the onset of spring. Just a few weeks ago, your reporter was driving past the s-curve near the Science Museum and saw one lone sailboat near the Plandome shore. She was beautiful with her full sails against a bright blue sky. And just this past weekend, another lone sailboat, this time a little bit smaller, was sailing on Mill Pond. Closer investigation found Charlie Blume, from the Mill Pond Model Yacht Club, sailing his East Coast 12. This traditional-looking model with graceful lines has not sailed in our area, but is part of a large competitive class in Maryland, New Jersey and Rhode Island. Blume built his little model from a kit and was attracted to her because of her traditional lines, rather than a "high-tech" look. He said he may wander over to NJ to competitively sail her, but for now is content with enjoying sailing her on Mill Pond. Kind of makes one's heart beat a little faster just thinking about the spring and the first sail on Manhasset Bay. It won't be too long now!
