WESTBURY CARLE PLACE GUIDE

Village of Westbury builds on revitalization success BY BETSY ABRAHAM

BABRAHAM@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

It’s been an eventful year for the Village of Westbury. 2016 saw the completion of the Ellison Avenue Bridge, the expansion of arts and entertainment offerings and the acceptance of a $10 million grant which will allow the village to continue transforming the downtown into a cultural destination. And while the village continues to move forward in building up Post Avenue, Village of Westbury Mayor Peter Cavallaro said retaining the residential feel of the neighborhood will always be a priority. “Most people want to continue to have a single family residential community, but the development we’ve done hasn’t encroached on those parts of the community. People have seen the benefits without it impacting their neighborhood,” Cavallaro said. “Every place changes. The goal is to manage that change in a way that’s acceptable and that people can get their arms around.” The village got a huge boost in their revitalization efforts thanks to a $10 million grant from Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July. As one of 10 municipalities statewide (and the only one Island-wide) to receive the grant, which was part of the governor’s downtown revitalization initiative, the village will work with regional economic development consultants to identify ways they can continue to build up the downtown. The village already implements many smart growth strategies, such as walkability, multi-use housing and transit-oriented development, and Cavallaro said the grant will help take the village to the next level of revitalization. While plans for the funds are still being decided, Cavallaro noted that on the wish list are more multifamily housing, additional parking and a major employer to open in the village. Infrastructure improvements, such as updating lighting on Post Avenue or adding LED lights, is also an option. The goal, Cavallaro said, is to appeal to both people who want to stay and retire in the village, as well as young people. “If we can accomplish some of these things, we’ll be moving closer to being one of the most attractive places on Long Island to live and having a premier downtown on Long Island,” Cavallaro said, adding that Westbury’s location was unparalleled.

A $10 million check from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office will help continue revitalization efforts in Westbury.

This year saw the completed replacement of the Ellison Avenue bridge, a project 25 years in the making. “I think that’s achievable. If we can Cavallaro said that the first three reorient some of the things we’re to four months of the new year will doing and implement some of the be spent planning and analyzing things we’re thinking about, I think we how to use the grant money, with can be there and I think we’re already the formation of a local committee moving in that direction.” who will help provide input as well In addition to approximately 18 new as a series of public meetings to get businesses moving to Post Avenue in additional feedback from property the last five years, more apartments owners and residents.

grade crossing at School Street. While one of the most noticeable upgrades on Post Avenue is the transformation of the old movie theater into the state-of-the-art performing venue The Space at Westbury, other vital improvements throughout the village helped lay the groundwork for a successful downtown. “The Space was one of the lynchpin projects and is an anchor for activities,” said Cavallaro. “But it’s not the whole story. We started before the Space was even thought of, with façade improvements, drainage and traffic calming, we added commuter parking and established the Piazza.” While efficient infrastructure, housing, amenities and entertainment are all crucial for a thriving downtown, there’s one factor that has been essential to the village’s revitalization—resident support. “We have enjoyed a fairly high degree of consensus that the things we’re doing are positive for the village,” Cavallaro said, noting that in addition to residents, civic, churches and other community organizations have supported the village’s efforts. “These things aren’t possible when you have a convergence of opinion.” Dawn Blinn, executive director of the Business Improvement District (BID) agreed, saying having residents support different programs and initiatives, such as the BID Dollars and street fair, was crucial. “Community support is vitally important to everything that the BID does, especially with regards to our continued revitalization efforts,” Blinn said. “Resident support is at the heart of the health of our businesses, and the downtown in general. Without their support, all of our efforts would be futile.” And while revitalization remains at the top of the priority list, the board remains cognizant that it should never come at the cost of compromising the spirit of Westbury. “Even though Westbury isn’t the same place it was 40, 30 or 20 years ago, it’s essentially the same place in terms of the way the community is,” Cavallaro said. “And the spirit in the community is it’s primarily a single family community with a better downtown. And because of the better downtown, it’s more fiscally sound and a more solid community. When you have a dead downtown, you have a dying community. When you have a thriving downtown, you have life.”

A Community For All People BY BETSY ABRAHAM

BABRAHAM@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

There are many things that set the Village of Westbury apart, but one of its hallmarks is its diversity. People from all around the world call Westbury their home, and have found a place where their culture is not only accepted, but celebrated. The village’s diversity dates back to its founding by Quakers, who had an inclusive, accepting mindset, acting as some of the country’s earliest abolitionists. That worldview was upheld in Westbury for centuries, and is still a trademark of the community, which is home to people from all ethnic backgrounds. African Americans and Germans settled in Westbury after the American Revolution, and the building of the Long Island Rail Road brought an influx of Italian, Irish and Polish immigrants. In the 1960s, many Caribbean and Latin American families also began to make their homes in the area. As of April 2010, the US Census Bureau notes that black or African American people make up almost 22 percent of the Village of Westbury’s population, with Asians making up

As of 2010-14, almost 35 percent of the population were not U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals at birth. The community has embraced its diversity and allowed it to make the village stronger and more interesting. “It adds to the richness of the community,” said Village of Westbury Mayor Peter Cavallaro. “Every group that’s here brings something to the table. Everyone seems to be getting along and wants the same kind of community. It’s very diverse, but very coherent.” Among the groups helping to bridge the gap between government and the people is the village’s Latino Advisory Council. Pedro Quintanilla, a member of the council, said because a majority of the Hispanic community are immigrants who don’t come with a tradition of participating in local government, the council helps open up an important channel of communication. “It helps demonstrate that the village as a government does look after and care for and highlight the contributions of Hispanics,” Quintanilla said. “I think the biggest benefit is helping the village open up channels of communication and being a conduit and inviting people to participate in the civic life of

the village.” The council recently partnered with the village to organize a Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, which drew more than 250 people to the parking lot of St. Brigid/Our Lady of Hope School to enjoy cultural activities, crafts and food. For many of the village’s Italian residents, who may be second, third or fourth generation immigrants, being a part of organizations such as the Maria SS. Dell’Assunta Society of Westbury, Sons of Italy Donatello Lodge, Comunita Italiana, Padre Pio Society and the Durazzano Society, among others, help keep them in touch with their roots. Visitors to Post Avenue can see the benefits of the village’s diversity first-hand, as they have myriad ethnic businesses and restaurants to choose from, including fare from Italy, Mexico, Turkey, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. In addition to people from all ethnic backgrounds, the village is also welcome to those of all religions. The village houses Long Island’s biggest mosque, as well as several churches, which often will partner together to offer community services and outreach programs. “All the ethnic and religious groups are working together to make this village a very welcome place for all,” said Habeeb U. Ahmed, presidentelect of the Islamic Center of Long Island (ICLI). “Our strength comes from different ethnic and religious groups.” To best meet the needs of the community, St. Brigid’s Church offers mass in English, Spanish, Italian and Creole. Tony Stanganelli, pastor of St. Brigid’s Church, said one of his first encounters with Westbury’s religious community was at a food drive the ICLI had conducted for the church’s food pantry. “The community of Westbury works hard to break down all divisions, racial, cultural, economic and yes, even religious,” Stanganelli said. “I am proud to be part of a community that is so united by our desire to bring to all people a sense of their value, worth and dignity as children of God.” Providing a home for people of all religious, economic and ethnic backgrounds has allowed the village to set itself apart as a microcosm of the world. As it has done since its founding, the Village of Westbury has continued to embrace and celebrate the differences of its residents, a mentality that has helped shape it into the rich, interesting community it is today.

Building On A Strong Foundation

The Westbur y Times PRESENTS

WESTBURY CARLE PLACE GUIDE

BY BETSY ABRAHAM AND LEIGH ANDERSON

WESTBURY@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Westbury has a rich history, dating back to 1658 when it was settled by Quakers. What was once miles of farmland and a stop along the Underground Railroad has turned into a vibrant suburban destination, with plenty of residences, restaurants and businesses, as well as numerous area attractions. And while downtown revitilization is a focus, the Village of Westbury has taken major steps to preserve the rich foundation it was built on. The village board recently placed historic landmarks at various sites around the community, to recognize them as having a special character and historic, architectural or aesthetic interest or value. “The whole intent is to raise awareness of local history and some of the things that exist in the community that need to be remembered from a cultural and historical standpoint,” said Village Mayor Peter Cavallaro. “There are places in our community which I think have interest, and should be marked.” The six sites recently recognized were the Religious Society of Friends

revitalization . “It’s not inconsistent with making the community more sustainable,” Cavallaro said. “There’s hundreds of years of history here. You can make it the kind of place that is thriving for today, but let people know there’s a lot of things that happened here and people who came before us to make it what it is today.” Gary Monti, Historical Landmarks Council committee chairman, said he hopes the signs will help people learn more about the community they live in. “I hope people recognize that Westbury is not just a suburban community that’s been around a long time. It’s one of the oldest communities on Long Island and because it was a Quaker community it was different,” Monti said. “It’s a really interesting idea and people will be proud to be living in the village once they learn more about it.”

Long Island’s Vanderbilt Cup Races were one of the most prominent and awe-inspiring forms of entertainment just after the turn of the century, running one day in October from 1904 to 1906 and again from 1908 to 1910. Held on local roads such as Jericho Turnpike and Massapequa-Hicksville Road at their initiation, the races drew crowds of tens, and later hundreds, of thousands of people from Long Island, New York City and beyond, according to town historian of North Hempstead Howard Kroplick. A Westbury grandstand served as the starting and ending point of the Vanderbilt Cup Race twice throughout the race’s history, and its location will be officially recognized as a historical landmark with a placard from the Village of Westbury. The races were established by William K. Vanderbilt Jr., the

great-grandson of Cornelius Vanderbilt, in order to “encourage American automobile manufacturers to improve their products in comparison with European automobile manufacturers,” said Kroplick. “Pure excitement,” were the words he used to describe the atmosphere at the races. Car racing was a new phenomenon, and the Vanderbilt Cup Races drew in hordes of people eager to watch it for the first time. However, the races were as dangerous as they were thrilling. Throngs of people stood on the roadsides as the cars flew by, sometimes at 100 miles per hour, said both Monti and Kroplick. Kroplick’s website, www. vanderbiltcupraces.com, highlights the history and hazards of the cup races. The first spectator death occurred in 1906, prompting the building of the Long Island Motor Parkway, the United States’ first parkway designed solely for motor vehicle use. The race was permanently ended on Long Island after two driving mechanics’ deaths in 1910 and the parkway closed in 1938. But even with the tragedies they caused, the Vanderbilt Cup Races made a profound imprint on Long Island’s history and the history of automobiles in the United States as a whole. “It was one of the most significant races in the history of motor sports,” said Monti, explaining that numerous locals today do not know about the Vanderbilt Cup because the racing sites show no signs of their past.

Religious Society of Friends Meeting House and Cemetery

The Religious Society of Friends Meeting House, located on the corner of Jericho Turnpike and Post Avenue, was built in 1902—though the original

meeting house was founded in 1701— and has played a major role in creating the Westbury of today. In 1957, the Westbury Friends School was opened on the property, which currently educates children ages nursery through first grade. Staying true to its long-ago-established Quaker values, the school focuses on simplicity, peace, integrity, community and equality, said Westbury Friends Meeting member Martha Smith. The other school on campus, Brookville Center for Children’s Services, is dedicated to pre-school children with special needs. The cemetery on site is another crucial component of the meeting house’s history, as one of the first cemeteries to allow burials regardless of race. Some of Westbury’s most notable people are buried there—including members of the Hicks and Post families—and the cemetery is still in use today. When considering its longevity and the effects that Quaker ideals still have on the community of Westbury, it is not hard to understand why the Westbury Friends Meeting House was chosen as one of six Westbury sites to be given historical landmark designation. The meeting house is not only a religious building, but a symbol for the open, inclusive mindset Westbury has upheld for centuries, as one of Long Island’s oldest and most diverse communities.

What has now been transformed into the Westbury Community Center and War Memorial was once the home of a distinguished equestrian millionaire, well-known in the worlds of polo, racing and fox hunting alike. Ambrose Clark inherited much of his wealth as the heir to the Singer Sewing Machine Company and owned several properties both in the United States and abroad. Clark lived and breathed horses; he was “a horseman pure and simple,” as his chauffeur William Davis said in a November 1979 historical society meeting, the transcription of which can be found at the Westbury Historical Society’s cottage. Clark’s Westbury home, located at what is now 360 Post Ave., was built circa 1903, according to a 1972 article in Long Island Forum, entitled “Westbury’s Living Memorial,” by Edward R. Walsh. The article, found in Westbury Historical Society’s archives, states that the property included a “large attached stable with its 32 stalls, the carriage room, windmill and small

HISTORY from page 11C ‘tack’ room where riding gear was stored and maintained.” According to Walsh’s article, Clark sold his Westbury estate in 1909 to the White family, who resided there until 1932. Though fire destroyed the stable, windmill and carriage house, the main house and tack room remained intact, and in 1946, the home was dedicated as “a permanent memorial to the Westbury men and women who fought in both world wars.” “It was really the heart of the village at one point,” said Monti. Horses played a prominent role in the culture of Westbury in the 20th century, and Ambrose Clark was in the middle of it all. Nowadays, the historical site serves the people of Westbury, offering several activities for youth, adults and seniors. As Walsh said in his article, the Community Center, “created to enrich the lives of Westbury residents, is destined to ring with the laughter of future generations.”

Hicks Nurseries

The Hicks family’s residence in Westbury dates back to the 1600s, long before its nursery business even started, which explains the deep-rooted ancestral connections it holds with the community today. After the family had been Quaker farmers in the Westbury

area for more than 150 years, Isaac Hicks established Hicks Nurseries in 1853, which started out as a fruit tree business, according to current Hicks Nurseries president and Isaac’s greatgreat-great-grandson, Stephen Hicks. Part of what has made Hicks Nurseries so successful are the contributions each generation has made, said Stephen, including the development of the Hicks Yew hedge by the horticulturist Henry Hicks. They’ve also taken part in landscaping locations on Long Island, as well as Sagamore Hill, the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, and the John D. Rockefeller estate, Stephen said. Throughout an existence spanning six generations, Hicks has evolved from its fruit tree beginnings and

developed into an all-encompassing nursery, selling flowers, shrubs, trees, plants and more. However, even with the differing landscaping demands of today, the Hicks family has not forgotten where their business began. Displaying its neighborly atmosphere, Hicks hosts free, family-friendly events throughout the year.

Robert Bacon Memorial Children’s Library

Founded by Martha Bacon in memory of her husband Colonel Robert Bacon, the library not only holds special relics, maps and art from years past, but has also been teaching, inspiring and nurturing local children since its establishment in 1924. Bacon, who served as Secretary

of State and Ambassador to France during Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency, believed in igniting curiosity in the minds of children, and it was for this reason that the library was built as his memorial. “It’s really a living organism,” said Library Director Cathleen Merenda, highlighting the personality and impact the library has that other memorials do not. “It’s a memorial that has a very practical function for kids in the community…giving them a special place to spend their time that is uniquely theirs.” Though the library has kept up with technological changes and expanded its scope of learning materials over the years, the aim to “develop children’s imaginations and abilities to dream” has remained steadfast, Merenda said. Though many locals knew of the library’s historical status before the designation, Merenda hopes that having the plaque there for people to read will help spread the word about the library—past and present. “I think [the library] should be a point of pride in the community because it shows, historically, that Westbury has cared for its children in a very unique and special way,” said Merenda, a tradition she is committed to continuing for generations of future children who come knocking at the library’s door.

WESTBURY/CARLE PLACE GUIDE • OCTOBER 12 - 18, 2016

Why I Love Westbury And Carle Place

“Carle Place is reminiscent of a “Modern Day Mayberry!” CP is one square mile—a very safe place to raise children in a humble environment with families who have old fashioned values and schools with modern sophistication! I wanted to keep my children grounded and safe, but not sacrifice education and I believe I achieved all of this by residing in Carle Place.” —Sally Pine

My first-grade teacher, Mrs. Gross, was funny, friendly and kind. Ms. Santos, my second-grade teacher was encouraging and made learning fun! Now I am in Rushmore School and I love it. I have lived in Carle Place for all my life and I feel lucky to be here.” —Connor Iadevaia “Living in Carle Place is a wonderful experience. It combines the warmth of small town living with being located near a major metropolitan area. We

have friendly and generous neighbors who volunteer to improve our community in many significant ways. This sense of community has made Carle Place one of the most desirable places to live on Long Island. We have a fine school system, an active Parent Teacher Organization, an energetic Athletic Booster Club and a successful Educational Foundation. In addition, we have many dedicated community organizations such as the Carle Place Civic Association, the Carle Place Senior Citizens Organization and the Carle Place Fire Department. While Carle Place may be small in size, it is known regionally as a great place to live. Carle Place truly shows that “good things come in small packages”. —Barry M. Dennis

“I am a proud Westbury High School alumni who has lived in Westbury for 40 years. I love Westbury’s never ending gift of cultural diversity; it is a gift that just keeps giving. When I first moved to Westbury I witnessed the struggles that followed the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Westbury is known for celebrating diversity. Each decade since has welcomed new families, making us a culturally richer community. I love our location; 40 minutes from NYC, 20 minutes from institutions of higher learning, 10 minutes from the beach, five minutes from recreation, the arts and great retailers.” —Karin Campbell

“I’ve had the good fortune to travel all over the world, and no place has provided me with more warmth, security and a sense of belonging. No matter where I wind up, my heart will always be in Carle Place!” —Robert E. Skelton

“Why do I love Carle Place? The first reason is we celebrated the 100th anniversary of our town last summer. We had a terrific parade, a carnival with extraordinary rides, cotton candy and popcorn! Delicious! At the end there was an awesome fireworks show. My second reason is our schools. Cherry Lane School has excellent teachers! My kindergarten teacher, Mrs. McDermott, was artistic and creative.

“I moved a lot as a kid. All over the island, and we even had a small stint down south. I lived on Broadway as an infant and after all of the traveling my family did, I ended up back in CP as a freshman in high school. I’m in my 30s now, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. This is the only town where I have ever had real ‘roots,’ and despite living all over the place, I consider it my hometown. I made true, lifelong friendships here and while it’s certainly not a perfect town, it is my town. I also love our little main street on Westbury Avenue, and

“One of the things I love most about Westbury is our rich history that has brought us to this point. Still, we also have a consensus among our residents on wanting to make Westbury even better for the future. Managing change is not easy, and you want to do it in a way that is acceptable to everyone, if possible, and in a way that pays respect to the past. I think our residents know that you can’t stand still. They’ve supported our efforts to build for the future and to make our community stronger and more sustainable.” —Peter Cavallaro
