ART MUSEUM CELEBRATES EXHIBIT OPENING IN TRUE FASHION N

othing beats an opening party when a whole group of artists turn out, especially when they are among the world’s most beloved contemporary talents and exquisitely attuned to the exciting theme of the show.

At the Art of Music (on view until March 8), the Nassau County Museum of Art welcomed patrons, lenders (including both Hong Gyu Shin and Asher Edelman, two of the world’s top collectors), members and a terrific group of artists including Aaron Taylor Kuffner, Christine Matthai, Ben Schonzeit, Mark Kostabi, Andrew Sendor, Adrian Nivola, Moyosore Martin, Peyton Freiman and Angela Stratton. Among museum supporters, artists Christine D’Addario and Alaleh Ostad were on hand with Gene Luntz, art advisor to Bob Dylan and Peter Max. The all-star team of volunteers and patrons, including Theresa Liang and Cindy Zhao who take care of the museum store each week, were out in their fashionable best. —Nassau County Museum of Art

Letter from the Publisher Welcome to blvd.

A

s we continue to make our way out of this pandemic, I am proud to share another special issue of blvd. with you. This luxury publication features the best of style, fashion, design, decor, entertainment and so much more, all in one place. The march towards normalcy being what it is, we look outwards in highlighting destinations our readers might want to visit now that the world is starting to open up again. As a board member of the Nassau County Museum of Art, I welcome you to come out and see our new exhibits opening in 2022. And for those who might develop an appetite while you’re out in Roslyn, Christy Hinko shares her recent experience dining at Il Mulino, where she got a taste of some regional Italian cuisine delivered with impeccable service. And for those gearing up for nicer weather waiting around the corner for us, our friends over at Hicks Nurseries prep us with some gardening tips for when we can start sprucing our yards up. History fans like myself also have plenty to dive into with this issue. Joe Scotchie shares the fascinating connection the Marx Brothers have with Great Neck, a community they called home for many years. Christy walks us through the history of Barbie, who debuted on the toy scene in 1959 and whose collecting trends continue to go strong six-plus decades on. We also take the time to recognize the Girl Scouts of Nassau County, who along with their national counterpart that was founded with 18 girls in Savannah back in 1912, will be celebrating the organization’s 110th anniversary in March. Our blvd. lifestyles section gives a nod to Very Peri, the Pantone color of the year that is a gorgeous periwinkle “Whose Courageous Presence Encourages Personal Inventiveness And Creativity.” And as someone who is a fan of our four-legged friends, Dave Gil de Rubio has a feature on Anthony Rubio, a Master Pet Couturier whose high-end doggy fashions have landed him and his fur babies Bogie and Kimba on runways around the world, including upcoming Fashion Week events in New York City and Los Angeles. I hope you enjoy blvd. as much as we have enjoyed creating it.

Bring Luxury Into Your Backyard BY KAREN MUSGRAVE

f we’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that it feels good to be home. Our homes are our own personal oasis, a place to enjoy family and friends as we relax and recharge. Bring the luxury of your home outdoors into the garden with these five popular landscape design trends.

Self-Care

Create a space outdoors where you can become one with nature. For peace and relaxation, consider a yoga and meditation space. Include a water feature such as a fountain, pool or pond where you can enjoy a good nap and quiet contemplation. For more

robust activities, consider a tennis court or putting green. Having your favorite sports and hobbies at your fingertips will provide you with joy and happiness.

Create a Flower Cutting Garden

A cutting garden is a place

where you grow flowers and plants to ensure you have plenty of beautiful options on hand for floral arrangements in your home. For example, in the spring you can grow tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. For summer, try a combination of early, mid and late blooming plants such as delphinium, coneflower, daisies, lamb’s ear, dusty miller and dahlias. Fall grasses, mums, cabbage, kale and Montauk daisies create beautiful, easy to grow options for your autumnal arrangements. Remember that this type of garden is for production only—it’s not necessarily meant to look pretty, so place it in a sunny area out of the way if you have the luxury of space.

Enjoy Your Culinary Delights Outdoors

An outdoor kitchen makes entertaining poolside a breeze. Solid stone countertops and high-end appliances create an inviting space for dining alfresco in the summer months. Consider adding a bar for easy cocktails day and night. Love pizza? An outdoor pizza oven is a wonderful luxury for entertaining. Upgraded, quality outdoor furniture that complements your indoor furniture adds to the allure of a larger space that is not defined by doorways and walls.

Warmth & Lighting Create the perfect ambi-

ance for late night ‘smores and summer evening cocktail parties with outdoor lighting. Work with a seasoned landscape designer to create the custom lighting plan that will best complement the way you plan to use the space. Extend your time outdoors into fall and winter with a custom fire pit, chiminea or outdoor heater.

Plant a Kitchen Garden & Orchard

Growing your own food is a fun and rewarding experience. Have your favorite fresh herbs on-hand for special meals and cocktails. Grow your own lettuce for salads and your favorite veggies

for grilling. Additionally, an orchard allows you to grow your favorite fruits from cherries and apples to peaches and figs. Fresh, organic food from your own garden always tastes best. Create an outdoor space that incorporates the luxuries you enjoy inside your home and on your favorite vacations. Beautifully designed and decorated outdoor spaces add an opulence to your space, making it a place you’ll never want—or need—to leave.

COLOR ENCOURAGES INVENTIVENESS, CREATIVITY

Pantone reveals the Color of the Year 2022 BY BOULEVARD STAFF

specialsections@antonmediagroup.com

Pantone, the global color authority and provider of professional color language standards and digital solutions for the design community, introduced a new blue shade, Very Peri (Pantone 17-3938), a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone as the Pantone Color of the Year selection for 2022. Blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red, this happiest and warmest of all the blue hues introduces an empowering mix of newness.

“A

s we move into a world of unprecedented change, the selection of Very Peri brings a novel perspective and vision of the trusted and beloved blue color family,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, Pantone Color Institute. “Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.” Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light.

“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer,” added Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute. “Creating a new color for the first time in the history of our Pantone Color of the Year educational color program reflects the global innovation and transformation taking place. As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication and as a way to express and effect ideas and emotions and engage and connect, the complexity of this new red-violet-infused blue hue highlights the expansive possibilities that lie before us.” We are living in transformative times. Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through. As we emerge from an intense period of isolation, our notions

and standards are changing, and our physical and digital lives have merged in new ways. Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new color possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space, Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how color trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.

Very Peri in Home Décor and Interior Design

“This color of the year is challenging, as it’s super sophisticated,” Greg Lanza of Greg Lanza Design and Birch Hill Design (New York and Florida) said. Evocative of new modernity, Very Peri injects a sense of playful freshness into home interiors, enlivening a space through unusual color combinations. A versatile shade that animates our creative spirit, Very Peri is suited to an array of different materials, textures and finishes, providing a pop of color, whether introduced through a painted wall, accent furniture or home décor or acting as an intriguing and eye-catching accent in a pattern. “I see this year’s color as an accent color used in a texture such as velvet, chenille or iridescent silk,” Lanza said. “It could be seat covers to wake up traditional dining chairs, pillows on a sofa or at most a pair of cool tub chairs.” He added, “I’d use it unexpectedly in a traditional interior scheme with antiques rather

than a contemporary room.” Lanza, of Locust Valley, has a loyal following of both private and commercial clients from Boston, Manhattan and the Hamptons to Palm Beach. Full design-build projects as well as hourly and color consultations are available. Visit www. GregLanzaDesign.com to learn more.

About the Pantone Color of the Year

The Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as

new lifestyles, playstyles and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention. For 23 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design. Very Peri, the color selected as the Pantone Color of the Year 2022 will be added into the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors Color System, the most widely used and recognized color standards system for fashion, textile, home, and interior design.

CHAMPAGNE

An Elegant Extra

Pomegranate Kiss 3 oz Chandon Brut 1 oz Belvedere vodka ¾ oz lemon juice ½ oz simple syrup ¾ oz pomegranate juice Pomegranate pearls and a rosemary sprig

BY CHRISTY HINKO

Charles Dickens said it best, “Champagne is one of the elegant extras in life.”

S

parkling wine originated in the Champagne wine region of France under the rules of the appellation that demand specific vineyard practices, sourcing of grapes exclusively from designated places within it, specific grape-pressing methods and secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to cause carbonation. Champagne became associated with royalty in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The leading manufacturers made efforts to associate their Champagnes with nobility and royalty through advertising and packaging, which led to its popularity among the emerging middle class. Chandon was sparked into life in 1973 by the visionary spirit of Robert-Jean de Vogüé and California pioneer John Wright. As one of the first French-owned sparkling wine ventures in the U.S., Chandon carefully selected its vineyards and are now considered to be amongst the best for producing quality sparkling wines in California.

Chandon Rosé This aromatic, dry Sparkling Rosé reveals a gorgeous shade of pink in the glass with aromas of fresh strawberry, watermelon and cherry that proceed through the palate and finish. Chandon California Rosé is refreshingly fruity. Created using the same three noble grape varieties used in Champagne, it’s a love story between delicate, crisp Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, picked at greater ripeness for intense fruit flavor and gorgeous pink hue. Pairs perfectly with… • Eggs and bacon • Fruit and granola parfait • Pizza • Hamburgers and fries • Sushi • Tuna tartare

Chandon Brut In keeping with the style established when the winery was founded, Chandon Brut Classic captures the expression of California’s vineyards. Its crisp and fresh flavor profile relies on a blend of the three traditional

grape varietals used in Champagne—Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier— and adds a celebratory note to any occasion. The classic Chandon offering, Chandon Brut offers the signature flavor profile of apple, pear and citrus flavors and aromas with a hint of spice. The finish is soft and dry.

Shake all ingredients in a shaker tin except Chandon. Strain into glassware with ice and top with Chandon. Slowly stir in the glass. Garnish with pomegranate pearls and a rosemary sprig.

Pairs perfectly with… • Caesar salad • Eggs benedict • Chicken and waffles • Crab cakes • Calamari Chandon’s winery, Domaine Chandon is located in Yountville and today Head Winemaker Pauline Lhote and her skilled team continue to innovate and provide a unique expression of the terroir, delighting senses with California brightness, vibrancy and intensity of flavors and aromas. Visit www.chandon.com to learn more.

Stracciatella alla Fiorentina

A GOLD COAST

Garlic crusted veal chop Photos by Christy Hinko

Pork Chop Milanese

Culinary Gem Il Mulino serving up richness of Abruzzo cuisine BY CHRISTY HINKO

Tucked unassumingly into the flash and glamour of the Gold Coast’s Northern Boulevard is the wildly popular and upscaled, but discreet, Il Mulino Long Island. This restaurant is one of dozens in the brand’s repertoire, a fixture in Roslyn, for nearly 20 years.

T

he menu, a nod to the Abruzzo region in Italy, just east of Rome, is known for its culinary variety and richness. The Roslyn location is intimate and cozy, very elegant and has an exclusive feel. The main dining room has approximately 15 tables, but private dining is also available. To start, keep it simple and choose the Super Toscano wine, a beautiful blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, while you enjoy a fresh shaving of Parmigano and salami. The bread basket is indeed filled with richness, with a selection of focaccia and gourmet breads like olive, tomato or spicy garlic. The mildly spicy bruschetta is a treat, with its fresh chopped tomato, garlic and onion. Regular nightly specials are often as tempting to choose from, including the zucchini

flowers stuffed with ricotta cheese, lightly breaded and then fried. The idea of eating a flower may seem unappealing, but it is virtually tasteless, allowing the rich creaminess of the ricotta cheese filling to take center stage on this appetizer. If you are in the mood for soup or a hearty starter, try a bowl of the Stracciatella alla Fiorentina ($15), an utra-rich chicken stock, Parmigiano, spinach and eggs for an egg drop consistency. Choose a pasta dish as an appetizer or entree; it’s good enough to serve both purposes. The Pappardelle alla Bolognese is a generous portion of homemade pasta with blended braised veal and beef in a creamy rich tomato sauce ($33). Do accept the freshly grated Parmigiano cheese on top when offered. It just makes this dish that much better. The entrees are equally

appealing. Try the Pork Chop Milanese, a thinly pounded pork chop, lightly breaded and fried, topped with broccoli rabe and cherry peppers, garlic and onion. Or try the Costoletta di Vitello, a broiled veal chop with a crusted garlic coating, seasoned with fresh sage and served with roasted potato wedges ($58), cooked to order, so perfectly. Enjoy a complimentary glass of grappa (Italian brandy) with a golden raisin in the bottom of the glass to complete your dining experience along with one of several decadent desserts.

HAPPY 110 ANNIVERSARY GIRL SCOUTS TH

Girl Scouts of Nassau County across time As the 110th anniversary of the Girl Scout movement approaches, it’s important to look at its rich history and how the Girl Scouts became a household name.

T

he movement started with 18 women from Savannah, Georgia in 1912, and has amassed more than 14,000 registered Girl Scouts and 3,000 adult members in Girl Scouts of Nassau County alone. The mission Juliette Gordon Low envisioned lives on and is strengthened as the organization continues to influence girls across borders and time. In 1912, Gordon Low met with Boy Scouts and visited the Girl Guides in England. It was then that she decided to mirror those organizations to ensure all girls had an environment to grow. In a time when women were expected to adhere to social norms—be seen but not heard—she recognized that girls could and should have the agency to do anything. She encouraged women to explore their interests and develop skills to create opportunities for themselves, bringing the first Girl Scout troop to life. Her vision for the future of women resonated across the country. In 1917, women mobilized in Oklahoma, baking and selling cookies to fund their troop. That entrepreneurial spirit merited a Golden Eagle of Merit— 60 years later, the award is now aptly called the Girl Scout Gold Award. By 1918, Low’s idea reached the girls of Lynbrook, marking the foundation of Girl Scouts in Nassau County. From

1926 to 1965, the Council was divided into different units to keep up with the organization’s continuous growth. As membership grew, so did its programs. In 1927, Nassau County opened its first camp: Camp Grey Beech, where girls explored nature and learned to be resourceful in the great outdoors. Throughout the years, camps continued to open and close but Camp Blue Bay has stood the test of time, celebrating its 75th season this summer. While this was happening in the 1920s, cookie sales were booming. Girl Scouts baked sugar cookies at a national level, packaged them in wax paper bags and sold them door-to-door giving shape to what is now the world’s largest female-led entrepreneurial program. In the 1930s, the Greater Philadelphia Council took things to the next level by selling cookies commercially at the City’s gas and electric companies. The Girl Scout Federation of Greater NY followed

Drum parade, GSNC

their lead, adding a personalized touch with a trefoil-shaped cookie and boxes that read “Girl Scout Cookies”. Then, the national Girl Scout organization began licensing commercial bakers to produce national stock and towards the end of the decade, more than 125 councils were selling cookies. With ingredient shortages in World War II, Girl Scouts thought “outside the box” and sold calendars until 1948, when cookie sales returned and grew exponentially. From the 1950s onwards, there were three main flavors which our cookie-lovers can still enjoy today: Thin Mints, Do-si-dos and the Trefoil. From 1954 through 1965, units sent girls to national and international events to represent the Nassau Council including meeting Great Britain’s Princess, Mar-

garet Rose at the National Headquarters and being the first international hosting location for girls attending events. In 1976, the council headquarters moved to its current location at Roosevelt Field in Garden City. Into the ’80s, the Mags&Munchies program began with Girl Scouts selling magazines. In 1986, the Councils in Nassau County merged, becoming Girl Scouts of Nassau County, Inc (GSNC). One year later, GSNC was featured on the Girl Scout Cookie boxes. Other iconic projects of the organization included “Operation Cookie” which sends cookies to servicemen/women all over the world. As the years progressed, new programs, partnerships, and activities continued to evolve. In 2008, a partnership with Island Harvest was formed, which led to “Operation Stop Hunger,” a program that delivers nut and snack donations to people in need. In addition, the Healthy Living Initiative was also created, to boost the girls’ self-esteem and encourage physical well-being.

A historical candle ceremony, GSN

The organization continues to adapt with the times and media to form new programs for each Girl Scout. In STEM, girls participate in the LEGO Robotics Program where they’re given a specific problem and they must create a robot to solve it. Girls are pushed to work as a team, and be creative and strategic. In 2014, Girl Scouts went digital launching Digital Cookie to provide tools to make it easier for girls to sell cookies and learn about e-commerce. As one of its pillars, innovation has driven Girl Scouts to innovate their programmatic offerings to best meet the needs of its members. GSNC created the Traveling Trefoil initiative to bring its programming to communities throughout the County so girls who cannot attend traditional troop settings or don’t have access to regular resources can have access to Girl Scouts’ opportunities. It is also implementing panel discussions with women of color who make a difference through law, mental health workshops including cyber-bullying

C

awareness, and career resources. From video game design events to writing a college essay, girls are empowered to become the best versions of themselves. By cultivating an engaging environment, girls have broken the glass ceiling for the past 110 years, accomplishing incredible milestones. To celebrate those milestones, we will be honoring GSNC’s members at a Legacy Luncheon this March for our 110th anniversary. So, although we can look back in time and say, “Juliette Gordon Low, mission accomplished!,” we are excited for the future and can’t wait to see what comes next for our Girl Scouts. —Girl Scouts of Nassau County for Anton Media Group

WOVEN

Of Beauty And Intelligence Michael Ricigliano’s newest exhibition will debut at LIU Post BY BOULEVARD STAFF

The pandemic wreaked havoc on many industries, especially the arts. The virus caused many museums, galleries, theatre and performances venues to shutter. With the hopes of seeing life return to “normal,” Long Island- based lawyer turned filmmaker, playwright and fine artist, Michael Ricigliano will debut his newest exhibition, WOVEN at Long Island University Post Campus through Feb. 28.

T

he exhibit is curated by world renowned artist, Alan Sonfist, whose work is exhibited in major U.S. and international museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Paris, France and the National Gallery of Art (Canberra, Australia). “The beauty and intelligence that I find in Michael’s art is amplified by the fact that he is completely self-taught,” Sonfist said. “I truly believe that he is producing work that should be exhibited in museums and I do not say that lightly. I am proud to watch him on his journey to become an exceptional artist.” WOVEN is a collection of abstract acrylic on canvas pieces that were created during the COVID pandemic by Ricigliano of Locust Valley. “I looked to my earlier abstract works for inspiration,” Ricigliano said. “Not just as a visual understanding of my progression as an artist, but as a way of re-creating some of those specific pieces.” A true Renaissance man, Ricigliano successfully balances two careers at once. In recent years he developed a career as an artist, writer, and film producer, while also still practicing law in Melville. “The name WOVEN was chosen for this series because several pieces were once a completed work from my past, then cut into strips and woven back into a brand-new piece,” Ricigliano said. “Here the viewer can see a new work of art and try and recreate what it might have looked like before.” He has exhibited his abstract work at the Union League Club Gallery and the Lilac Gallery in Manhattan as well as The Huntington Art Gallery on Long Island. He wrote and produced the feature-length film, The Brooklyn Banker, directed by Federico

Abstract acrylic on canvas is the feature of this exhibit.

Michael Ricigliano

A BRIEF CHAT WITH THE ARTIST

From Ricigliano’s WOVEN exhibit

Castelluccio; it stars Paul Sorvino, David Proval and Troy Garity. He also co-wrote the feature film, Created Equal, based on the book by R.A. Brown and directed by Bill Duke and his film, The Court of Oyer and Terminer, starring Harry Lennix and Harris Yulin, is set to begin filming this summer. Ricgliano’s play, A Queen for a Day, directed by John Gould Rubin, had a very successful run off-Broadway. It is currently in pre-production for its feature film adaptation starring Proval and directed by Castelluccio. Long Island University Post Campus is located at 720 Northern Blvd., in Brookville. The exhibit is in the library. Follow Ricigliano on his Instagram @mtricig.

Anton Media staff had a chance to speak with Michael Ricigliano of Locust Valley. Here are some of the things we learned.

Q How do you describe your style to someone who has not seen it yet? A I would describe my painting style as organized abstract expression. Q What/who has inspired your work? A I was introduced to abstract art by Federico Castelluccio (HBO’s Sopranos) who directed my first film, The Brooklyn Banker and has become a very close friend. Federico, an accomplished painter, knew I had an interest in art but I never had any formal train-

ing. He was the one who introduced me to that world. Q Why do you create? A I believe the ability to create is inherent in all of us. I enjoy each aspect of the process, whether it’s my script writing to the final production of a film or play or sketching out an idea, to painting it and placing on the wall. Q How did you develop/nurture your talent? A Constantly working on different projects. Q Why is art important? A It’s an expression of who we are and I believe it’s important for us as individuals to nurture that ability.

Happy Birthday

The beloved doll celebrates 63 years BY CHRISTY HINKO

Would you believe your beloved Barbie doll turns 63 this year? Barbara Millicent Roberts, simply and better known as Barbie, celebrates her birthday on March 9, 1959. Barbie was created by Ruth Handler, the founder and president of Mattel, one of the world’s largest toy companies, in response to watching her own daughter play and live vicariously through her paper dolls.

M

ore than a billion Barbie dolls have been sold to date. Adults and children, alike, love this doll like no other. People who have grown up with Barbie have been the driving force behind her wild success as a collectible, not just in present-day sales. “All precious toys from the Barbie-era, like G. I. Joe or baseball cards or whatever it is, people played with them and they got damaged and disappeared. That’s what makes them so valuable,” Cindy Hammerquist, professional doll and Barbie collector and owner of Fab City Toys here on Long

Island, said. “A lot of times people will call me and say, ‘I have a Barbie, mint, in the box from the early ’80s,’ and unfortunately a lot of those dolls aren’t valuable because they weren’t meant to be played with. It’s the dolls that are meant to be played with that aren’t played with to death then those dolls potentially have value.” Hammerquist has been collecting dolls for more than 20 years. “I have been playing with and collecting Barbie as long as I have been alive,” she said. “I went to the national Barbie convention and felt like I had just found my people.”

Barbie Doll Collectors Convention will be held in Chicago on July 6. “It has led me to find a collectors’ group and learn a lot more about Barbie,” Hammerquist said. “I then started collecting vintage Barbuie from the 1960s.” Barbie was launched at the American International Toy Fair in Queens in 1959. Hammerquist said Barbie has a lot of history here on Long Island; a lot of the sales representatives who were involved in Toy Fair lived on Long Island at the time. “When I moved to Long Island about 11 years ago, I started to

advertise that I buy vintage Barbies,” Hammerquist said. “One of the first collections that I got was from two sisters, which included duplicates of everything; it was enough for me to go into business and become a dealer.” Hammerquist is always looking, always helping doll owners with the valuation and sale of their collections of all dolls, not just Barbie, although she specializes in vintage dolls.

O

nce known as Salisbury Park, the county-owned acreage was named for the 34th president of the United States, who died in April 1969. That October, Nassau County made the change official to honor Dwight D. Eisenhower. As usual with Panchyk’s books, it has the right amount of text, giving readers a brief but thorough history and providing the relevant information as well as nuggets of fascinating and obscure marginalia. The majority of the book consist of photos with captions and short chapter introductions. Panchyk mixes historical photos with his own snapshots, illuminating various familiar aspects of the vast park as well as nooks and crannies and the changes of the season. Eisenhower Park Through Time is available at www. arcadiapublishing.com as well as the major online booksellers. Among other titles by Panchyk are Westbury From Above, Abandoned Long Island, Catholic New York City, Long Island Aerials and Nassau County Through The Years. Anton Media Group recently spoke with Panchyk.

Park Gets The Book It Deserves BY FRANK RIZZO

If you love Long Island history but are pressed for time, Richard Panchyk of Westbury is your man. His 34th book (and sixth devoted to Nassau and Suffolk) deals with a place that looms large in our county’s history, and has provided countless hours of entertainment and recreation. And yet it rarely draws a fullbook treatment, until recently, when Arcadia Publishing released Panchyk’s Eisenhower Park Through Time.

Statue of Dwight Eisenhower at the Hempstead Turnpike entrance to the park

Q A

Why did you decide on this subject?

In researching other books over the years, going all the way back to my book on Westbury in 2007, I realized that Eisenhower Park deserved a book of its very own. It’s a beautiful place but there’s also a lot of history contained within those 930 acres. Nobody had ever written a book about Eisenhower Park, yet there are dozens of books on Central Park.

Q

Was there a decent amount of documentation/photographs in the public record?

Photo source Google Maps

A

An historian always wishes for more documentation. But between images of the

park’s historic neighbors (including Roosevelt Field, Roosevelt Raceway, and the Meadowbrook Club), some fascinating old mementos of the park, and current and recent images, I think that I was able to tell a compelling visual story of the park from its early days as a golf club through its transformation into a park in the 1940s, through to the present day.

Q

What are surprising things you learned and/ or the readers will discover about the park?

A

For one, Eisenhower Park is larger than Central Park. Another interesting fact is that Charles Lindbergh flew over the park (then the Salisbury Golf Links) just seconds after he took off on his historic flight across the Atlantic in 1927. I also learned a lot about historic remnants within the park, such as the Lannin House, which was built for the daughter of the man who owned the Boston Red Sox at the time when Babe Ruth was on the team.

Q

Did the pandemic make it easier or harder to write and do research?

A

The park was actually a refuge for me during the pandemic, so I found myself spending a lot of time there and exploring, which was very helpful to my researching and creating the book.

The Don Of Doggie Couture Anthony Rubio’s rise to being a fashion plate for the four-legged set

An Anthony Rubio Design featuring women’s wear and a matching doggy dress Pet Couturier Anthony Rubio with his boys/ muses/Chihuahua brothers Bogie and Kimba

BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO

It all started with a little dog that stole then-aspiring fashion designer Anthony Rubio’s heart. The little pooch’s name was Bandit and he was the inspiration for what became Anthony Rubio Designs.

T

he namesake of the company is a Bronx native who has spent nearly two decades carving out a niche for himself in the fashion industry with a term he coined himself— Master Pet Couturier. For Rubio, who has spent the past 30-plus years as a New York City educator, fashion has been a passion dating back to childhood. Rubio, the middle sibling of three brothers, grew up in Bronx public housing with his Puerto Rican-born grandmother, mother and two brothers after his father left when he was five years old. While his mother taught herself English and went on to become a Spanish teacher, the apartment was also where both women made extra money doing piece work as seamstresses. This proved to be the spark of inspiration for Rubio. “I say a lot of what I do comes from my heritage—the sewing from my grandmother and the fashion and style comes from my mother, who I give credit to all the time,” he said “I got to see my mom in the ‘60s and ‘70s, busting out miniskirts, bell bottoms, platform shoes—everything that was hot at the time, my mother wore.” After graduating from Catholic school, Rubio’s portfolio was good enough to gain him entry into the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.), where he thrived before having to transfer to Lehman College after commitments to his mother and grandmother prevented him from going to Europe to serve as an apprentice. His fashion dreams were on hold until his older brother, who was living in Brooklyn, called him to say he should come rescue a dog being beaten on the street. When Rubio arrived and was allowed to take the dog to the vet, the pooch that became Bandit was found to be severely abused. His new owner nursed him back to health within a year and on a whim, made some homemade fashions to enter Bandit into a Petco costume contest that he handily won. “I knew how to sew, but since I only knew how to sew for people, I had to adapt to animal physiology,” Rubio recalled. “I designed patterns and experimented, eventually creating an outfit encrusted in Swarovski crystals that made him Elvis. We went into Petco and there were all these dogs ripping their costumes off that were flimsy and cheap. I asked my partner if he saw how awful these designs were and when I took the coat off, everyone turned around and said he won.”

Bandit kept winning and Rubio’s designs eventually led to appearances in the Daily News, the New York Times, Entertainment Tonight, Newsweek and myriad international outlets. Rubio also became the first pet fashion designer to showcase at New York’s Fashion Week in February 2012. The fashion designer was forced to pivot when Bandit and Rubio’s main inspiration, his mother Hilda Colon, both passed away within a year of each other back in 2015. Chihuahua

Hollywood the Leonberger, one of the many large breeds Anthony Rubio designs for

twin siblings Bogie and Kimba (named for the lead character of a 1965 anime) became the heirs apparent shortly after. At the same time, Rubio was forced to put himself more front and center for his brand, despite a reluctance to do so. “The label used to be called Bandit Rubio designs, but when [Bandit] died, my partner Robert said we had to figure something out or the business was going to die,” Rubio said. “Since I was the designer, he said I should be in front of the camera even though I hate having my picture taken. Playing around, I put on sunglasses. He said that was it—this persona I had no plans to create revolving around my wearing these shades. Every time I take a picture, I’m wearing these classic Aviator sunglasses.” Rubio’s success has led to his being part of 15 separate Fashion Weeks, with him being deep into prepping for upcoming shows in New York and Los Angeles. Adopted when they were only two months old, his doggie muses have adapted to the hustle and bustle while becoming busy world travelers. “I don’t travel anywhere if I can’t take my dogs,” Rubio said. “Bogie and Kimba have been to Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia, Milan, Rome, Amalfi, Amsterdam, Germany, Belgium—they’ve been everywhere. People tell me they want to be my dog in their next life.” Rubio’s doggie fashions start at $300 and have sold for as high as $10,000, a price point he attributes to meticulous craftsmanship and a maniacal eye for detail. “This is a one-of-a-kind luxury product that clients are willing to pay for,” he said. “I spend a lot of money on the most expensive fabrics and things like crystals and gold. I cut into

Bruno, the uber-fabulous Yorkie prances proudly wearing a custom reptile print tuxedo with matching top hat

pieces and create my own fabrics from that, so they’re getting what they pay for. And I have clients who take clothes I make for their dogs and put them on mannequins like I do and turn them into art pieces. Or they hang them in frames because it’s a memory.” With Rubio ready to go full-time as a Master Pet Couturier, he’s also become a pet advocate, raising millions for organizations like the Humane Society and Guide Dog Society. It’s a cause Rubio is passionate about. “I am the voice for those who cannot speak,” he said. “I’m not making a fortune, which I could easily if I was more business-minded and money-oriented, but my thing is about saving animals.” Visit www.anthonyrubiodesigns.com to find out more about the Master Pet Couturier.
