  • News: Town Board Approves Hotel Rezoning With Restrictions

    After numerous public meetings, two postponements, and a great deal of public controversy, the Town of North Hempstead (TONH) board last week unanimously approved a rezoning for the site of the proposed Bradley Hotel on lower Main Street, but with restrictions. The most significant restriction is the prohibition of underground parking. That part of the resolution reads as follows: "All accessory parking, drop-off and receiving shall be on-grade. There shall be no underground parking or loading areas." In order to comply with the TONH requirements for parking spaces vis-à-vis the number of rooms, the originally submitted plans called for an underground garage with valet parking. FULL STORY

  • News: Gold Coast Mansion Welcomes the Public

    As you drive south on Searingtown Road, approaching the Long Island Expressway you may notice an entranceway on the right side, which identifies the property as Inisfada (Gaelic for Long Island) and St. Ignatius Retreat House. There are two dimensions to these grounds: the spiritual oasis of the retreat house and the sheer physical beauty of Inisfada. While some might feel some hesitation about visiting a religious Camelot, still you are more than welcome to come and see an architectural masterpiece and one of the finest mansions on Long Island's Gold Coast.

  • Sports: On the Bay

    Last Sunday, April 22, was a spectacular day on the water. The temperature was in the high 70s and there was enough wind to give our frostbiters some starts. Just when it looked like the wind might die, a nice southerly came up to encourage the RC to continue racing for the better part of the afternoon. Since this was the last day of racing for the season, except for the Long Distance race next Saturday, the RC, thanks to the generosity of RC member Rita Syracuse, brought bundles of hot dogs and sausages to feed not only the RC (which is the custom) but all the competitors, too. So in between starts, competitors had time to pass by Kraus' Kastle and grab a bite to eat. They also got to taste Barbara Schmidt's cookies. Barbara is the wife of RC Chair Herb Schmidt and has been providing cookies for the RC for as long as anyone can remember - and they are just the best! RC jokes that if Barbara stopped supplying cookies, frostbiting would come to a halt as no one would show up to run the races. FULL STORY
