You had to wait for parking last Saturday at a Northern Boulevard mini-mall on the Roslyn-East Hills border—and for a good reason.

The day brought out a large crowd of Met fans, young and old. It also brought out local residents choosing from the Meat House’s array of gourmet delicacies.
Breast cancer remains one of the more serious health problems on Long Island. Each year, an average of 1,265 cases are reported in Nassau County, with more than 200 annually ending in death.
However, Adelphi University’s renowned Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program is determined to combat this disease, not just through the hotline but also through such endeavors as the highly-popular Creative Cups program. Long Island women, either breast cancer survivors or those with friends or family members who have battled the disease, have created brassieres to highlight the urgency of the problem.
Since the late 1950s, the Roslyn High School horse tamer stood at the front entrance of that institution, making it a symbol of the high school for generations of students.
However, wear and tear took its toll on the structure and in the winter of 2010-2011, it began to deteriorate dramatically, all to the point where it had to be dismantled and moved to North Shore Architectural Stone in Glen Head.

Continuing the family tradition, Daniela has already made her mark on the world stage, playing with orchestras not only in the U.S., but also in Mexico, Krygyzstan, Spain and Germany.
And that is what happened as the board voted 5-2 to approve the acquisition of the 7.2 acres of land on the Roslyn Country Club in Roslyn Heights. The cost of the acquisition is $7.5 million as the board also approved a bond for that same amount.

This past April, Josh Levenstein, in preparation for his Bar Mitzvah at Temple Sinai, joined with Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity that recycles gently worn shoes. With an average of 700 million pairs of shoes thrown away by Americans each year, the effect on the nation’s landfills and atmosphere could be devastating. But by being redistributed through the charity’s international and domestic partners, these shoes get a second chance at life and give millions of children and adults much needed shoes.
Josh’s Soles4Souls shoe drive, which began on Mitzvah Day 2012, Sunday, April 29, and continued through the end of May, proved to be a tremendous success. Not only did Josh collect shoes to be distributed nationwide and internationally through Soles4Souls, but he also donated half of the collected shoes to The INN (The Interfaith Nutrition Network) to assist in their own efforts in helping people locally.
