As the sun faded in the late afternoon sky on Monday, Oct. 29, local residents braced themselves for a storm unlike any other in recent memory.
When the howling wind gusts and steady rainfall subsided the next day, community members took to the streets to survey the damage of Superstorm Sandy, which upended hundreds of trees and numerous power lines in the area and left nearly all of the homes and businesses within the Village of Westbury and Town of North Hempstead without electricity.
The Town of North Hempstead, specifically the heavily wooded areas, had trees that were nearly 70 years old, ripped from their roots and plunged into homes and street corners. In a conference call with reporters, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman detailed municipal initiatives in place to help residents and updated certain areas of concern like road clearance and the Nor’easter that was expected to hit the area this week.
Following a donation of more than 800 new books, a reading gazebo and a specially designed book nook – thanks to Capital One Bank and The Heart of America – students at Drexel Avenue will have plenty of places from which to choose.
Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDCLI) and partner Conifer Realty, LLC joined with the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council on Oct. 12 to host a groundbreaking ceremony for Cathedral Place Apartments – which was awarded state resources through Governor Andrew M.

“We are proud to be a part of the revitalization of New Cassel through the development of much-needed workforce rental housing,” said Marianne Garvin, president and CEO of CDCLI. “This has been a true collaborative effort between federal, state and local government, private partners and the community.”
If you have an appointment at Dental Arts of Garden City and are fortunate enough to draw Dr. Donald Goldstein, who started his dental career on Post Avenue in Westbury, the first thing you notice about the genial dental practitioner is his lanky, 6’ 5” frame and large hands. If you were to guess that he knew his way around a basketball court, you’d be right. But what might surprise you was his involvement in the 1959 NCAA Final Four, a tournament that found him playing against college superstars and future NBA Hall of Famers, Oscar Robertson and Jerry West. Far from being a mere bench player, the All-American helped lead Louisville to its first Final Four appearance, averaging 21.4 points and 10 rebounds during the 1959 tournament. In the process, Louisville also dethroned the legendary Adolph Rupp and his University of Kentucky squad, the reigning barons of the state and a college basketball force in its own right.
With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.
As the new senior leader for roughly 6,000 students, Liddick, a 23-year veteran, is now the BMT commander for the Air Force’s largest training group, according to the Air Force Print News Today.
