Letter from the

Publisher

Welcome to Roslyn Magazine The Village of Roslyn has been around since 1633. And while Anton Media Group hasn’t been around that long, we’ve nonetheless taken great pride in covering this unique community through our weekly newspaper ever since 1877. More recently, we’ve expanded into cyberspace through our website, www.roslyn-news.com. Roslyn Magazine is yet another outlet we’ve been using to sing the praises of this culturally and historically rich community. Longtime Roslyn News editor and historical ace Joe Scotchie takes us back in time with a piece that not only tells the story behind local landmarks like the Bryant Library, Roslyn Cemetery, Valentine House and Cedarmere, but he also chronicles Roslyn’s basketball program and the background of the horse statue in Gerry Park that is originally from the Mackay Estate. We also take time to highlight some of the special corners of the village, whether it’s Kimberly Dijkstra sharing spring fashion finds on Old Northern Boulevard, Nicole Lockwood chatting with Roslyn Village Gallery owner Marsha Tarlow, Betsy Abraham checking into the Roslyn Hotel, Christina Claus creating a timeline of Roslyn homes from the past to the present or Alexandra Civorelli whetting our appetite by writing about the Jolly Fisherman (Roslyn’s oldest restaurant) and a number of other local eateries. But it’s really people that make up the fabric of Roslyn. To that end, managing editor Jennifer Fauci not only takes us behind the scenes of the charitable works that the Junior League regularly partakes in, but she sits down with plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Neumann of Roslyn Heights to discuss body sculpting and also visits the world of professional sports via her conversation with North Shore resident and ESPN NFL analyst Adam Schefter. As you can see, there’s plenty to dive into as we scratch the surface of what makes this community so wonderful.

The Mackay Horse Statue:

Roslyn’s Latest Jewel By Joe Scotchie

Preserving history is what Roslyn does better than most

Clarence Hungerford Mackay, heir to a mining empire, constructed the mansion from 1899-1902. At 348 ft., the mansion represented the highest point in Nassau County.

ROSLYN MAGAZINE

T

he Village of Roslyn is legendary for its historic restoration efforts. Dovetailing nicely into that identity are the monuments that grace the Roslyn area. There is the Ellen E. Ward Clock Tower, the Civil War statue in Roslyn Cemetery and the Spanish-American war markers also on the clock tower grounds. For Roslyn, the past is also present and that includes the latest monument to greet visitors. In April 2013, the Mackay Horse Statue, formerly part of the long-lost Harbor Hill mansion, made its triumphant return to Roslyn, where it was placed on a site in Gerry Park, itself an appropriate new home as that park is named for Roger and Peggy Gerry, the two leading preservationists in the village. The statue represents a homecoming and yet another restoration success. The story of the horse statue begins with Harbor Hill. Constructed by Clarence Mackay, an heir to a mining empire, the mansion was one of the jewels of the North Shore. In its prime, it attracted such

illustrious guests as the Prince of Wales and Charles Lindbergh, who was the guest of honor at a banquet and dance held the night of the latter’s triumphant ticker tape parade down Fifth Avenue following that famous 1927 flight across the Atlantic. World War II marked the end of an era on Long Island. Many of the old mansions would be bulldozed; suburban housing tracts would take their place. In 1947, Harbor Hill was dynamited. One of the statues ended up at Roslyn

ROSLYN MAGAZINE

High School, the other remained on its original property, now a residential unit. In 2010, that unit’s proprietor was set to sell his house, now part of the Village of East Hills. Franklin Hill Perrell, then the executive director of the Roslyn Landmark Society, received a phone call from a fellow preservationist. That phone call got Perrell in touch with the statue, which, as he later told the media, stood out like “an apparition.” And so, another major preservation effort was underway. The statue, massive as it was, needed significant repair work. The departing homeowners donated the structure to the Town of North Hempstead and the Landmark Society swung into action, raising the $100,000 needed for such renovations. Fundraisers and matching grants did the job and in April 2013, the statue was unveiled in Gerry Park. The day, as all those who attended can attest, was a moment for much celebration. Among those attending was Michael Mackay, the grandson of Clarence and Katherine Duer Mackay, who took a more melancholy view of the event. “This statue is a bittersweet reminder of days long gone and the haste in which so much of Harbor Hill was lost,” he told the local media. “It’s a miracle it escaped the bulldozer, and even more miraculous that the Landmark Society could bring it back to life.” Perrell put a historical perspective on the event, adding that the horse statue

represented “the most important statue installation ever on Long Island in terms of its scope and cultural significance.” Town historian Howard Kroplick, an East Hills resident, played his own role in the restoration project by assisting with fundraising efforts. He also helped to identify Gerry Park as the perfect new home for the statue. That unveiling was only the beginning of the statue’s new life. Since Gerry Park is a favorite destination for local youngsters, especially during the snow-sledding season, more renovations are necessary. In 2015, the town board approved a capital project plan which includes a $71,000 Nassau County Community Revitalization Project grant for the statue. According to town officials, the project will include the design, development and construction of a plaza, including a terrace, decorative benches, historic markers, benefactor plaques and winter protection for the statue. During the winter months, Gerry Park is a favorite destination for children in the Roslyn area and their parents as a place to enjoy the snow by sledding down the steep hill. However, that park now has the imposing Mackay Statue, and there have been safety concerns over youngsters and their speeding sleds. And so, the town spokesman added that the proposed winter fence will protect any people sledding in the winter from getting too close to the statue. The project is slated for completion this year, allowing Roslyn residents, young and old, to enjoy both the park and its attractive new statue for decades to come.

New Art Meets

Northern Boulevard

Roslyn Village Gallery is thriving in new location

By Nicole Lockwood

I

t’s a big shot, but I believe in art, I believe in artists, and I want to represent Long Island artists, sculptors, potters and more,” says Marsha Tarlow, surrounded by a scattering of canvas paintings and miscellaneous abstract pieces. “There’s so much talent all around us right here, so I’m taking a chance.” Tarlow has been sharing her passion with the greater North Shore community through her gallery on Main Street in Roslyn known as Roslyn Village Gallery, a collection of her own pieces as well as the works of local artists from a variety of mediums. The opening of the original gallery a year and a half ago was a dream come true for Tarlow, a lifelong artist with a dedication to maintaining the prominence of art on Long Island; but when the opportunity to move to a larger space just around the block was brought to her attention, she felt she had to act. The new space, located at 1374 Old Northern Boulevard, transports those who enter to decades past, reminiscent of a gallery on the streets of old SoHo with high vaulted ceilings, brick wall backdrops and ample space for featuring grand paintings, as well as creating them on the scene. It will also harbor metal sculptures, pottery, glass work and unique handmade objects. Tarlow aims to not only generate a certain look, but also foster a greater cumulative feeling among artists and onlookers alike. “The atmosphere around an artist is always positive,” says Tarlow with humbled satisfaction as she glances around the new gallery, yet to be finished at the time. “There’s always some kind of magic that goes on, and I love that magic. I want other people to understand how magical it can be to create.” Tarlow, who describes her style as impressionistic leading toward abstract, draws inspiration from landscapes and nature, capitalizing on the surrounding Gerry Park and Roslyn Pond, which lie just behind the new gallery.

There’s so much talent all around us right here, so I’m taking a chance.

Because of its prime location, Tarlow has considered the idea of providing painting lessons, which can be given either in the gallery itself or “en plein air.” While she will not advertise formal lessons, she said that upon being asked by interested artists in training, it is “certainly a possibility.” It is no surprise that local painters would value Tarlow’s insight, as she is the product of extensive training at the School of Visual Arts, Hofstra University and the Roslyn School of Painting. She attributes her deep understanding of a range of classical styles to the mentorship of Charles Pasqualina, founder and director of the Roslyn School of Painting, who instructed and inspired Tarlow and thousands of other students over the course of nearly 60 years before his death in July 2016. “He never made you feel like you couldn’t do anything,” she says. “And that has a lot to do with the emotion and confidence behind it. It’s very emotional, as is the case with any of the arts, because you’re putting yourself out there. Everything is you, from start to finish; it’s all up to the painter.” It is this emotionality that has been the driving force behind the Roslyn Village Gallery, and Tarlow hopes that it will go beyond the bounds of a traditional gallery, offering a space where community members can congregate and socialize, while also admiring the talent and beauty that surrounds them. “Art takes over,” says Tarlow of her passion. “It shouldn’t overpower people that live there, but it should certainly complement their environment. I want people to look in the window and see painters at the easel. I want people to look at things that create a good feeling inside of them, because that is what art is meant to do.” For more information about the Roslyn Village Gallery, visit www.roslynvillagegallery.com. The Roslyn Village Gallery features many of Tarlow’s own landscape paintings.

As Old As Time The Jolly Fisherman remains a Roslyn staple for fresh seafood By Alexandra Civorelli

I

n a village filled with famous landmarks and historic buildings, one of the most well-known sights in Roslyn is a simple white sign that hangs from a charming but innocuous brick building. Inscribed on the sign is the name of the oldest restaurant in town, The Jolly Fisherman & Steak House, a staple on Main Street since 1957. “We have plenty of history,” says Steven Scheiner, owner and chef of The Jolly Fisherman, whose father bought the restaurant in 1957 and has been owned by the family ever since. Even the exterior of the restaurant has remained relatively the same, which Scheiner says is part of being in the village’s picturesque landscape. Although the restaurant’s roots in the past are deep, after 60 years of being in the business, the main goal of the Scheiner family now is to keep up with and focus on the present. With the exterior an homage to the past and a renovated interior a picture of the present, the menu is a charming mixture of nostalgia and contemporary cuisine.

Roslyn Restaurant Guide

“[Our] bottom line philosophy is that our food is very straightforward: we rely on fresh ingredients, prepared to order,” Scheiner says, scoffing at the strange ingredients chefs sometimes use to make fancy dishes. “We take food that everyone has heard of and make it the right way.” It’s true that their menu is simple; with appetizers, clams and oysters, salads and soups, vegetables and sides, lobster, steak, fin and shell fish, and fried seafood, the meals are basic, with an emphasis on the freshness of the catch. “We stick to the tried and true and what people have always loved, and these days I think it’s harder to find that,” Scheiner says. The Jolly Fisherman’s specialties include some of their patrons’ favorite dishes, including the Pan-Seared Chilean Sea Bass over spinach, crispy leeks and roasted garlic sauce, and their Macadamia Nut-Crusted Salmon, served with a golden banana fritter. And yet, their favorite–and most famous dish of all–is their homemade banana cream pie for dessert, which has been sold in the restaurant since the beginning and, Scheiner says, 20 years before that, when his grandfather sold it. The ability to evolve is not just a characteristic of the restaurant’s design and cuisine, but also of its owner, who not only maintained ownership after his father, but became its chef. “I went to college and didn’t find anything that pulled me into a different direction, so my father requested I work with him,” says Scheiner. The restaurant’s chef de cuisine, Alonzo, whom Scheiner explains does the “nuts and bolts of the every day,” has been at The Jolly Fisherman for 33 years. The Jolly Fisherman & Steak House remains an important part of Roslyn’s history and future, and the Scheiner family understands the restaurant’s longevity is a culmination of respecting what’s always worked in the past while adapting to the needs of patrons in the present.

ROSLYN MAGAZINE


Dr. Peter R. Neumann, MD, F.A.C.S., is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in Roslyn Heights and shared the secret to getting rid of fat: body contouring. “Body sculpting has been in existence for the last 40 years, and since then, we have been trying to figure out ways to get rid of unwanted fat in localized areas,” says Neumann, who is a proponent of SculpSure, a revolutionary treatment that is noninvasive, has zero recovery time and takes less than half an hour. “A little over a year ago, the FDA approved Cynosure, which uses laser energy that penetrates the outside of the skin to the fat cells, which burst and are destroyed forever. In 6-12 weeks, 25 percent of the fat will disappear in the treated area.” As science would have it, people are born with fat cells determined by genetics.

Noninvasive is working and working well. SculpSure has been around for two and a half years and the results are universally successful.

Those cells get bigger and smaller depending on weight gain or loss, but they don’t change in number unless they are destroyed. Neumann, who opened his practice in 1981, has been in private surgical practice for the past 35 years and has seen a great deal of attempts to give a better shape to the body. But the history of burning fat has not come without its trials and tribulations. “Initially, we used liposuction, which was a surgical procedure that has a certain amount of invasion and anesthesia as well as recovery time, pain and discomfort, but the results for large amounts of fat removal were successful,” says Neumann. “Then we used non-invasive methods such as heat and massage and that didn’t

in shape before exhibiting their same appearance once the fat expands again. As for Cynosure’s SculpSure, that seems to be working quite well, and it’s possible that surgeons have found a successful way to abolish stubborn fat cells. “Noninvasive is working and working well. SculpSure has been around for two and a half years and the results are universally successful,” says Neumann, adding that the treatment is not for overweight patients, but for those who wish to eliminate localized areas of fat such as the muffin top, below the buttocks, love handles, the bra bulge on a woman’s back or under the arms where fat hangs. SculpSure is also successful in postpartum women who recently gave birth. Candidates must have a stable body weight with localized areas of fat that they can’t get rid of, therefore needing contour and improvement. SculpSure only works on fat that is approximately ¾ of an inch under

the top layer of skin, and once the fat is gone, it never comes back. “There are no repercussions with body sculpting, and the only time there is an issue is if the patient doesn’t have any fat, then they will not see results,” says Neumann, who has had a SculpSure machine for about 14 months. He has had about 180 patients who have been satisfied with their treatment. “There is no redoing of an area. By destroying the area of fat, the body will shape to that area so it looks contoured.” The painless treatment features four panels that harness controlled light-based technology when applied to the desired area, such as the stomach. The flat, non-suction applicator is designed for consistent results, depending on how many times a patient needs treatment for a selected area. As for the cost, it is estimated to be between $1,200 to $1,400, a price that is determined by the company, not from surgeon to surgeon, however, many surgeons offer specials during holidays. The procedure is only done in office, and Neumann said people can even come on their lunch break, have it done and go straight back to work. “It’s great for a quick fix, for localized areas of fat and it’s the best and easiest treatment with the least amount of downtime,” he says.

Charm Checks In At The Roslyn Hotel

W A historic boutique hotel offers visitors a home away from home By Betsy Abraham

ROSLYN MAGAZINE

ith close proximity to a number of attractions, as well as its historic charm, it’s easy to see why the Village of Roslyn is a top spot for visitors traveling to the Gold Coast. And whether they’re staying for business or pleasure, for a night, weekend, or even longer, travelers have found the Roslyn Hotel to be a cozy and inviting place to stay. The charming 77-room hotel offers visitors from near and far a comfortable place to rest their heads, right in the heart of a historic Gold Coast village. The hotel recently underwent light renovations to exude a more modern feel, but general manager Sachin Shah says this local landmark still has the charm characteristic of the village surrounding it. “The architecture of the building blends in with the community. It’s very airy and open,” Shah says. “The rooms are modern, but in the public areas we kept the old charm.” Those public areas include The Ballroom, which often plays host to wedding receptions, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet 16s, bridal showers, class reunions and more. With 14-foot ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, hand-painted frescoes and European-inspired architecture, this luxurious space has become a popular choice for special events. For smaller, more casual events, visitors can opt for the The Library Lounge, which features an inviting fireplace, and hotel guests can also grab breakfast at Cristina’s Restaurant, which features locally-sourced ingredients. Many reviews commended the hotel’s spacious rooms and historic feel, with numerous visitors lauding the staff for their attentiveness and accommodating nature. With

nearly a dozen hotels in a 10 mile radius, Shah says the personalized attention offered by hotel staff sets them apart from the competition. “We’re smaller so we’re more intimate. We know the guests and cater to their needs,” says Shah. “Especially if there’s a request or an issue, they’re dealing with one person and get to know a face they’re familiar with.” The hotel frequently has business travelers stay for an extended period of time, as well as visitors from the East End and city who travel to Roslyn to enjoy shopping at the nearby Miracle Mile.

merican history is everywhere in Roslyn. The village is home, for instance, to the Van Nostrand Starkins house, a structure constructed in 1680, plus the Robeson Grist Mill, which has been a fixture on Old Northern Boulevard since the mid-18th century. And there was George Washington’s visit to the Onderdonck House, also on Old Northern Boulevard, during the first president’s triumphant tour of Long Island following the Revolutionary War. Then there is literary Roslyn. Our tour of some of the area’s most historic sites starts with the Roslyn Cemetery, located on Northern Boulevard, just west of the junction with Glen Cove Road. The cemetery is owned by Roslyn Presbyterian Church, graced by a burial site for Civil War veterans, including the omnipresent Civil War monument. Among the notables buried there are Stephen Taber, a United States Congressman from New York from 1865 to 1869, and William Tavoulareas, president of Mobil Corporation, from 1969 to 1984. The literary figures interred are William Cullen Bryant, Christopher Morley and Frances Hodgson Burnett, the legendary British author of Little Lord Fauntleroy.


Bryant Library

Old Bryant Library

To this day, Bryant casts his shadow on Roslyn, most recently with the Roslyn Viaduct being named for him. His first cultural contribution to the village came in 1874, when Bryant announced that he was laying a foundation for a reading room and lecture hall. “[The] people [of Roslyn] have no places to meet in the evening save in the bar rooms,” Bryant noted. That wasn’t good enough for Bryant and soon, residents did begin meeting at that same reading room. Several months after Bryant’s death in 1878, local residents met to form the Bryant Circulating Library Association. A year later, Julia Bryant, the poet’s daughter, contributed $15,000 for the library and the establishment was off to a fast start. In 1946, the library’s original site on the west side of Bryant Avenue was condemned and demolished. The temporary new site was on Garden Street in Roslyn Heights. In 1951, the library moved to the Valentine House on East Broadway and the next year, it found a permanent home across the street

at its present site, the former War Memorial building. This was a fitting home for the library as the War Memorial building served as a community center for village families, housing pool tables, a rifle range, a bowling alley and a basketball court and hosting plays and dances. The library remains a major cultural center in the village, along with the Nassau County Museum of Art and productions by the Roslyn School District. In 1984, the library established the annual William Cullen Bryant Lecture, which has included such luminaries as Alfred Kazin, Irving Howe, Susan Sontag and Janet Maslin. Meanwhile, the Valentine House continues to serve the community. After the library moved across the street, the Valentine House, in 1962, served as Roslyn Village Hall. In 1995, the new Village Hall on Old Northern Boulevard was constructed and the Valentine House became the Bryant Library Annex, housing library offices, Friends of the Library used bookshop and a computer training/ meeting room. Another historic site that continues to draw visitors is Cedarmere, the William Cullen Bryant house. This colonial revival house, which served as Bryant’s residence when he was editor of The New York Evening Post, is now listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is also deemed a U.S. Historic district. Bryant himself named the property “Cedarmere” and during his years of fame, he entertained such luminaries as the famed architect Frederick Law Olmsted, the painter Thomas Cole, the novelist James Fenimore Cooper and actor Edwin Booth. After Bryant’s death, the mansion remained in family hands until 1899, when a nephew sold the house to Lloyd Bryce, a former congressman. In 1919, Bryce sold the property to the Frick family, another prominent North Shore family. Finally, in 1969, the family sold the estate to Nassau County for use as an art museum. In 1989 the county transferred control to

a private foundation. In recent years, there has been a flurry of activity concerning Cedarmere. The Roslyn Landmark Society spearheaded a major renovation of the mansion’s mill, while more work from the society, The Friends of Cedarmere and the Gerry Charitable Trust has resulted in more exterior renovations. The museum is open every day except Mondays and holidays year-round.

The Knothole

46

ROSLYN MAGAZINE

Another Roslyn author has an even larger piece of real estate named for him. In the early 1960s, elected officials were sophisticated enough to name a large public park after a man of letters. Christopher Morley lived in Roslyn Harbor and the park that bears his name encompasses 98 acres of land. In 1961, Nassau County purchased the property for $704,000. The land had previously belonged to the estate of Nettie Ryan and included the Links Golf Club. Today, the park has not only a nine-hole course, but also a swimming pool, plus tennis and hiking facilities. Morley’s presence is still felt. During his time in Roslyn Harbor, Morley worked at a one-room studio that he dubbed “The Knothole.” Nine years after Morley’s death in 1959, friends and neighbors had the Knothole moved to the park. Here, visitors can inspect the working quarters of a prolific author and editor, a man who was also founder of the popular Book of the Month club. In Roslyn, the road always leads back to historic preservation. The last stop is, fittingly enough, Gerry Pond Park, formerly the Roslyn Pond Park and named for Roger and Peggy Gerry, Roslyn residents who were indispensable in the village’s preservation efforts of the

1950s and ‘60s. Let the park’s visitors, writing anonymously on Facebook, describe its beauty. “Walking though the park, you will also be able to get a view of the historical buildings that line the park. Visiting during the fall, you will be able to see the phenomenal beauty of the trees. Riding the NYC subway daily elbow to elbow with the best and worst of this metropolis reinforces the need for personal space. And to stare into the eyes of a swan at Roslyn Pond, now Gerry Park.” “A world away from the hustle and bustle, this pond is peace presented as still water meditation, with gentle ripples forming from the floating fowl. I patiently watched a gaggle of geese search for sustenance and then heard the leader squawk and signal it was time to fly. Two graceful swans passed the time by watching the watcher. I stared at the mighty Cygnus and felt at ease.” “While the pond is the main attraction of the park, there are also a few picnic tables nearby and grassy areas. Watch a working mill and marvel at gravity and water. There is a limited number of parking spaces which we didn’t even realize were available until we walked over from the public parking lot on Lumber Road. Concord, Massachusetts has Walden Pond. Any aspiring Henry David Thoreau on Long Island and its surrounding environs has Roslyn Pond.”

The Homes That Roslyn Built From the ground up, homes in Roslyn have changed over the years By Christina Claus

F

rom Dutch colonials to mini-mansions, Roslyn’s real estate has changed greatly from when it was first settled in the mid-1600s, later named Roslyn in 1844, to today. The Roslyn Village Historic District encompasses Roslyn’s architectural styles throughout the years, keeping those styles intact for residents to understand their town’s history, while the homes around the historic landmarks change with the times to fit contemporary styles. The early years of Roslyn were marked by colonial homes comprised of one-story residences and roofs shaped like gables. The Colonial era of the late 1600s was no stranger to Roslyn, with massive chimneys prominent on homes. Colonial homes had limited windows and doors, with smaller openings. The Van Nostrand-Starkins House is a prime example of the Colonial era in Roslyn, which the Roslyn Landmark Society restored in the early 1900s. The Greek Revival of the early 1800s can be seen in homes like the George Allen House or the Obadiah Washington Valentine House shown on the Roslyn Landmark Society tour with their front gable roofs, entry porches with classical detail and symmetrical façades. The homes were constructed of mainly masonry or clapboard, with columns and elaborate door and window surroundings. Stick style became popular in the late 1800s, with its pitched gable or cross roof, wood wall surfaces and board patterns. The Stick style or Carpenter Gothic is best exemplified by the Henry Western Eastman Dower Cottage, while the Vernacular Victorian style is best exhibited with the Estelle Seaman Cottage. Vernacular Victorian homes were traditional homes with Victorian detailing, a cross-roof and a spindle-work porch. The Victorian Era of the late 1800s and early 1900s brought the Oscar Seaman House with its Queen Anne features. Two stories high with a pitched roof, the asymmetrical style home seemed to be part of the Queen Anne Revival, in which people wanted to get away from the Gothic and Italianate-style mansion and return to human scale. Bungalows became popular shortly after the Victorian Era along with the Colonial Revival, which is still present today. However, according to president of the Roslyn Landmark Society and local architect Craig Westergard, homes in Roslyn are everchanging since his start as an architect more than 25 years ago.

“Over the course of the 25 years I’ve been an architect, the biggest change is the size of the buildings,” says Westergard. “Clients today want homes of 4-5,000 square feet, when old homes were 2,500-3,000 square feet. Homes today have really doubled in size.” Westergard says the grandiose homes reflect the higher socio-economic bracket of people who live in Roslyn, because those who earn more money generally want fancier homes. As people move toward classical architecture, they also move toward a mini mansion. “Smaller houses have been rebuilt to look like small mansions with brick stone work and details reminiscent of classical detail,” says Westergard. “The trend right now is toward modernism, more contemporary houses. It’s more suited to the West Coast and southern California, but it seems to have made its way to the East Coast.” While many homes turn toward the mini mansions with an East Hampton feel, there is also pushback against these grandiose estates. Where houses were once in the Levitt ranch-style, the neighborhoods have become a mixture of mini mansions and mid-century modern-style homes. “It was a cohesively designed community until the last 25-year period, when the whole area got transformed into pseudo-mansion buildings,” says Westergard. “You have one of those mansion-type buildings juxtaposed to one of the original Levitt home ranch-style buildings, often with detached garages.” The mini mansions are generally brick façade buildings with cast stone or imitation cast stone details and classical detailing such as two-story columns and balustrade railings. Garages have been added to homes as well to make them appear larger. “The proliferation of the open floor plan has become almost ubiquitous inside the home,” says Westergard of the interior of homes that have changed with the exterior. The open floor plan began with the request for a great room, a California room or a California kitchen, an expansion of the house outside of the kitchen, Westergard explains. Gone is the traditional layout of the home with a foyer where the stairs to the second floor was accessible, a central hall, a kitchen in the back and the dining room and living room to either side of the hall. “People usually don’t need or want a separate dining room, and formal living and dining have become less important,” says Westergard. “Small television rooms have become larger spaces continuous to open kitchens, and with all the square footage...popular requests are media rooms where they create a small media environment as well as libraries, music rooms and game rooms.” As the architectural landscape of Roslyn continues to change both inside and outside the home, the historic town will always maintain its charms inherent to the North Shore.

loves about journalism is finding out secrets before everyone else. “I love hearing things and knowing things; whether it’s a team hiring a coach, drafting a player or putting a new contract out, that’s the world I operate in and I feel blessed, privileged and honored to do so.” On the first article he ever wrote, Schefter vividly remembers being scared to volunteer for one at the student paper. “I remember my first article was about alumni on the 1956 Michigan team and where they were now,” says Schefter. “To see my name in print for the first time as an 18-year-old college kid, you’re holding the newspaper and your name is there… it was surreal, intoxicating and addicting. I had a moment of ‘wow, I want to do this again.’” Not only did Schefter discover journalism by accident, he also found football by chance as well. While in Denver, after an internship and spending two years sending out résumés, Schefter wanted the chance to cover baseball as Colorado was getting a baseball team. Some didn’t think he was qualified, so they put him on the football beat instead. “Growing up I loved all sports; the Islanders, Knicks, Jets and the Yankees, but I wish I had enough foresight to see how popular ESPN and fantasy football would become,” he says. Fortunately, three men in Schefter’s life did have the foresight to see how much of a mark the native Long Islander could have in the industry. “When I was in college at Michigan, there were three guys who helped me in different ways and served as my mentors and guiding lights,” says Schefter. “One was Thomas George. He worked at the Detroit Free Press and The New York Times. He was always pushing me to go into this and telling me that I could do it.” Schefter’s second inspiration was his writing coach and professor Don Kubit, who fueled his passion to go into journalism and

do it for a living. The third man? None other than famed author Mitch Albom, whose writing Schefter says “has always blown me away and left me in awe.” “I was Mitch’s research assistant. I idolized him in college and got to work for Mitch my in my senior year,” says Schefter, who helped with the book The Fab Five. “Those three men put me on the right trail. I would hope that they would be proud of me now,” said Schefter, noting that he got the chance to meet up with one of his mentors at an event. “Last year, the Detroit Lions had a charity dinner honoring player Joique Bell as well as someone in the Michigan area who has done a lot of work in the community. The award winner was Mitch Albom and the keynote speaker was me.” Among his many accolades, the sports analyst and author launched a podcast in January called “Know Them From Adam,” featuring lengthier interviews. “The podcast is my chance to interview people and really get more personal about lessons they’ve learned and advice they’ve given,” says Schefter, who has so far spoken with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen, former Dallas Cowboy Troy Aikman and musician John Legend. “I hope it’s successful and that people like listening to it.” In 2016, Schefter got the chance to be a part of something that is not only very close to his heart, but his family’s as well when ESPN produced a special segment about September 11, 2001. The special featured Sharri, who opened up about losing her first husband Joseph Maio in the terror attacks, leaving behind 2-year-old Devon. Schefter narrated the special. “Just how well my wife handled that and how great the ESPN producer who did the piece was, I mean that piece really resonated with people,” he says. “They deserve all the praise.” With a book on 9/11, ESPN and his podcast, Schefter always finds time for philanthropy. His wife is a Type 1 diabetic, and Schefter does a lot of work for JDRF, a charitable nonprofit dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research. From the South Shore to the North Shore, Schefter says he never set out to build a reputation, but simply tries to work hard every day. “I pride myself on building trust with people; I’ve been doing it for 27 years now,” says Schefter. “My job has become my passion, and it’s a job I love and am proud and honored to do, but I’d like to think that 16 years in the newspaper business has kept me humble.”

Basketball: The Roslyn Game

By Joe Scotchie

W

hen you drive around the Roslyn area in the summer, you notice young people doing all the familiar things: swimming, playing at camps, working at summer jobs. You will also see local basketball courts packed with high schoolers. That’s because basketball is the Roslyn sport. Past generations of Roslynites have their roots in the five boroughs at a time when New York athletes dominated the game. They took that tradition with them to the suburbs. The best years for Roslyn basketball came in the mid-1970s, when a team coached by Joe Lettera won a county title. In recent years, teams led by George Beamon, Mark Gjonlekaj and Keandre Augustine have gone deep into the playoffs, as has a girls’ team led by Paula Spatz and Allison Schneider. One thing any Roslyn team has in common is their dogged determination. Roslyn squads, no matter what the score, never quit. This year’s teams were no exception. It was Lettera who really started the winning tradition at Roslyn. Lettera, who coached the team from 1958 to

ROSLYN MAGAZINE

1989, won 405 games while losing 210, for an impressive .668 winning percentage. In 2015, he was inducted into the New York State Basketball Coaches Joe Lettera Hall of Fame. His many honors include: 1973 Nassau County Coach of the Year, two-time president of the Nassau County Basketball Coaches Association and two-time Sportsmanship Award from the Long Island Basketball Officials. Among the many great athletes to play under him was the prolific novelist, Michael Crichton. In a 1996 profile in Newsday, Crichton, while visiting his alma mater, remarked that Lettera was a “young coach…who grew up in a tough neighborhood. He told us, ‘We’re going to build character through winning.’ That was the spirit at the time. So I wanted to come back again and see where I came from.” Lettera, for his part, called Crichton one of the five best players he ever coached, including the best center he ever had. That spirit lives on in the career of George Beamon. A native of Roslyn Heights, Beamon averaged a spectacular

33 points per game in his senior year in 2009, when he led Roslyn to a Conference Title. After a stellar career at Manhattan College, Beamon played D-League pro ball for both the Oklahoma City Blue and the Texas Legends. When his career in that league stalled, Beamon didn’t quit. Instead, he took his game across the Atlantic, where he now stars for the Thor AK Akureyri squad in the Icelandic Dominoes League. Beamon is having a banner year, averaging 20.6 points per game. After Beamon performed his magic at Roslyn, Mark Gjonlekaj, a center with a gifted left-handed jump shot, came along to lead Roslyn to more playoff wins. Gjonlekaj had two solid seasons with SUNY-Old Westbury, making the Skyline All-Conference squad in 2015 before an injury hampered his college career. He is currently a property manager with Gjonlekaj Inc. Keeping the winning tradition were squads paced by Keandre Augustine, a point guard who scored high numbers driving the lane Allen Iverson-style. Augustine played basketball and ran cross country track at Penn State-Wilkes Barre. In the mid-2010s, a winning girls’ squad also gave Roslyn fans many playoff thrills. Those teams included the sister team of Andie and Callie Migden, plus Paula Spatz, who fans liked comparing to the two Birds, Larry and Sue, and Allison Schneider, who also starred on the lacrosse team. At Roslyn, Schneider received the Coaches’ Award and was named AllConference for the 2013-14 season in basketball, while also receiving the Coaches’ Award in her junior and senior years in lacrosse. She currently stars for the Adelphi lacrosse team. Off the court, BJ Bass, an East Hills native who played football at Roslyn High in the mid-1980s, has used his business skills to advance the careers of budding professional stars. A certified player agent and managing partner of RBA Sports, Bass holds an annual tryout camp at his headquarters by the South Street Seaport, one that attracts numerous NBA scouts. Bass has helped RBA develop a vast network of basketball executives, endorsement partners and trainers. In fact, one NBA executive recently said that he would want Bass to represent his own son.

he Junior League of Long Island has one mission: to improve communities through active volunteering and to challenge women to greatness through friendship, compassion and commitment to their local community. The Junior League was founded in 1951 as the North Shore Service League, a nonprofit organization comprised of 288 young women volunteers. In 1959, the North Shore Service League purchased the current and existing Thrift Shop in Roslyn. Along with hard work, fundraising and help from The Phillips Foundation, the League was able to purchase the building with the help of the original group of women who painted, cleaned and decorated to make a true home base for the future Junior League of Long Island, which was inducted into the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) in 1962. The building is now considered historic, marked not only as headquarters, but as a legacy of the league. “I’ve learned a great work ethic and sense of volunteerism,” says Jennifer Livingston, communications director for the board of directors for The Junior League. “Not only are you working with like-minded women and trying to do something for the greater good, you’re also building friendships.” Livingston has been a member of the league for the past seven years and manages marketing, internal communications and public relations for the organization. She also handles the photography of events and social media pages. The women’s nonprofit charity organization is based in Roslyn, but covers the entire island. According to Livingston, the league was established during a time when women recognized the need to bring education to more communities, and along with education, proper funding as well. “The majority of our work is in towns or lower income communities that don’t have the funding. We bring the wealth of the island and the knowledge of the

world to these people,” says Livingston. “Whether it’s finding an interview outfit and résumé writing for women trying to get back into the workforce, learning to eat healthy or gaining better self-esteem, there are different resources available to people to help better themselves.” The Junior League’s focus is on women and children, but they give back to all of the causes and organizations they work with, including Bethany House, The Safe Center LI, The INN and The Ronald McDonald House. Of their signature projects, the League has two: Kids in the Kitchen and Project Playground. “Kids in the Kitchen is an event that we put on every year where we educate children and parents on better Not only are you working with eating and healthy habits when it comes to hygiene like-minded women and trying to and exercise,” says Livingston. “Project Playground do something for the greater good, happens every two years. We vet proposals one year you’re also building friendships. and build the next year. Last year, we partnered with the Town of Oyster Bay to build a sensory playground.” A responsibility-based organization, The Junior League currently has close to 200 members including 50 active members. After a prospective member has fulfilled their first year, they have six active years in the organization. Once that time period is complete, the option is given to become a sustainer within the organization. One of the member requirements is to complete a “done-in-a-day” or DID. “We work with Birthday Wishes, a Long Island-based organization that helps children celebrate their birthdays. That is one of our DIDs and we do about 7 to 10 for a calendar year,” says Livingston. “We try to bring some joy to these children in safe houses by having a party for them, complete with wrapped presents.” With the AJLI as the New York City based parent company, the organization hosts guest lectures and speakers as well as conferences all over the country. Getting the word out, Livingston helps to organize a mailing list to members, local nonprofits and businesses and also advertises digitally and in print. She says that the Thrift Shop is by far the biggest fundraiser annually. “At one time, the majority of The Junior Leagues had thrift shops, but that went away. With our thrift shop, we’re doing better every month and all of that money goes back to how we can fund these projects,” she says. “It’s a cross between a goodwill store and thrift shop, with prices ranging depending upon the donation. Our manager Maureen is a great asset to the thrift shop. She has a great gauge of The Junior League of Long Island what items are worth.” Thrift Shop is the organization’s The Thrift Shop accepts items that are suitable for sale and re-use that meet the biggest fundraiser. league’s quality standards. Gently used or never worn items including clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories as well as household and home décor items, furniture, books and sporting equipment are also accepted. “Our members range from all ages and [The Junior League] is just a great, well-rounded organization,” says Livingston. “I’m proud to be a member.” The Junior League of Long Island is located at 1395 Old Northern Boulevard in Roslyn. For more information, call 516-484-0485 or visit www.jlli.org. The board of The Junior League is always busy raising money and organizing fundraising efforts.

William Kempner: Member of Roslyn Landmark Society When I was a very small boy, 1958-59, I remember going to an Easter egg hunt on the grounds of Willowmere, I think it was, in Roslyn Harbor. I remember letting go of my father’s hand, and rushing to find Easter eggs, and that there was a prize for the kid that found the Golden Egg. I was very disappointed that I didn’t find it, but I did find some eggs, and we took them home.

Randi Batwin: Co-owner of Shag Ann and I were friends for 30 years and we opened up a store. When we first opened we were unpacking boxes; people were coming through the door while we were unpacking. We didn’t even have time to get prices on the items. We didn’t even have time to decorate, people wanted to buy. It was so charming and beautiful. We’ve done trunk shows right on the pond with fashion designers coming from LA, Paris, Italy and Argentina. We did a trunk show with a designer from Brazil and Salon Rock did the hair and makeup of the models, Tyrone did the menswear part of the runway show. It was like having a Paris fashion week right in our backyard. Roslyn has been fabulous to us.

My Roslyn By Christina Claus Candy Feinstein I’ve lived in Roslyn for 53 years in a community called Rolling Road, across from St. Francis. I lived in a fabulous area where everyone was friends. Everyone played outside and the doors were never locked. We had an association and all kinds of parties. Everyone knew everyone. The whole atmosphere was so wonderful. There was the tea house and when we moved out here from Brooklyn, we used to invite our Brooklyn friends to have lunch with us at the tea house.

T

he town of Roslyn proves to not only be full of historic homes and landmarks, but full of moments that bring smiles to the faces of residents. Roslyn holds a special place in the hearts of its current and past residents, having provided memories that last a lifetime. From the duck pond to the Bryant Library, Roslyn residents share the memories that make them happy to call Roslyn their home.

Susan Rusinek We lived in Queens and my oldest son, Lior, went to school in Queens and he practiced tennis as a young boy because it wasn’t a sport you could easily be injured in. After his bar mitzvah, we moved to Fresh Meadows, my son used to come to Roslyn to play tennis. There used to be a club next to the tower. We couldn’t afford tennis lessons there, so the coach at the club let him take lessons in exchange for cleaning the club. So my son would go a few days a week at 6 a.m. just to clean the club or take lessons. He became so good at tennis that he travelled around the state and even got a scholarship. He later moved to Roslyn after college. Every time I look at the tower, the memory is with me.

Estelle Rynston I’ve lived in Roslyn for nine years and it’s like a whole new life for us here. My apartment faces the viaduct, so I always know if there’s traffic or not. I have fond memories of going to the Jolly Fisherman for Saturday lunch and bringing my children to the duck pond to feed the ducks.

Renee Gross I lived in Roslyn for 30 years and I just love the area with their big backyards and many gardens. I loved the shopping center. I lived near the country club and when I was thinking of moving there, they had called it the “Mcmansion” area because there were so many mansions sprouting up. I just remember the parties we used to have in the big backyard with like 30 people. We even had my son’s engagement party back there.
