Few places in the Roslyn area suffered as much from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy as Clark Botanic Gardens. In fact, the grounds of the longtime establishment have remained closed since the hurricane hit last October. The gardens are expected to open in April.
In the meantime, Clark officials have up to 40 trees to replace. That restoration process received a huge boost recently when the Manes-American Peace Prize Foundation donated $10,000 to the gardens. Old Westbury resident Harvey Manes heads the foundation.

Though he has to contend with Tom Suozzi to challenge Ed Mangano for the Nassau County seat, Democrat Adam Haber said he knows what will happen.
“I’m not going to get the nomination,” the Roslyn resident said in a sitdown with Anton Newspapers last week. “I’m going to run a primary. I’m going to do exactly what Suozzi did against [Thomas] DiNapoli. He didn’t get the nomination. He ran a primary and I’m going to win the primary.”
Roslyn resident Michael Pollack has always been a Billy Joel fan. Pollack is also an accomplished musician. Now an undergraduate at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, Pollack, in 2007, played a live gig with Richie Cannata, Joel’s longtime saxophonist. So, it was inevitable that Pollack would someday play with the Piano Man as he has always considered Joel as the major inspiration for his own musical creativity.
The opportunity finally presented itself last month when Joel was giving a concert at Vanderbilt’s Langford Auditorium. It is Joel’s habit, when he plays in such a smaller setting, to conduct a question and answer period with audience members, some of whom are likely to be budding musicians themselves. Pollack and his friends knew this would happen at the Langford forum and so he was prepared. When it was his turn, Pollack asked Joel if he could play onstage with him. Such requests are familiar ones and Joel readily obliged. Pollack promptly made himself comfortable at the Piano Man’s piano and chose the Joel classic, “New York State of Mind” as the tune the two would perform. As Pollack broke into the opening chords of the familiar song, whoops and cheers could be heard from the audience, many of whom were Pollack’s friends.
