elcome to the 2010 season of bustling activity within the Incorporated Village of Garden City. The Garden City Chamber of Commerce, with the support of our local business community, is pleased to present the 41st edition of Garden City’s Community Guide and Calendar of Events for 2009-2010. This year for easier access and continuity, we have divided the Guide into six sections as follows: 1) Information pertaining to the Village of Garden City; 2) Business information and Chamber activities; 3) Community organizations including contact information; 4) Calendar of Village events from January through June 2010; 5) Our exclusive Shoppers’ Timetable listing the open hours of member retail stores and services along with their addresses and telephone numbers; 6) Advertisers who make this community service possible are placed between each editorial section. Please refer to the Table of Contents for items of pertinent information. The nearly 22,000 residents in Garden City and the working force of approximately 6,000 are truly blessed to live and/or work in this community of gracious living, shopping and dining. Our beautiful tree-lined streets and handsome homes are complemented by our well-designed, centrally-located business district, whose health, vitality and character we strive so diligently to preserve. The award-winning redesign and beautification of Franklin Avenue, Seventh Street, and New Hyde Park Road are evidence of the Village’s commitment to maintaining the atmosphere of its business districts. Completing its 83rd year of service to the Garden City community, the Chamber of Commerce continues to work in concert with the Village government to preserve and advance the mutual ideals and standards that make Garden City the best possible place in which to live and conduct business. The Board of Directors and Administrative Staff extend their wishes to all within our borders – whether nine-to-five or around the clock – for a satisfying and productive season and beyond. www.gardencitychamber.org

THE VILLAGE OF GARDEN CITY ...A Brief Overview...

L

ocated in the middle of Nassau County on approximately fivesquare miles, the Village of Garden City has about 22,000 residents. Its history began in 1869 when Alexander T. Stewart, a wealthy New York merchant, purchased more than 9,000 acres of the Hempstead Plains to build his Garden City. Since then, comprehensive planning and zoning have blended residential areas with a modern business district. A relaxing alternative to mall shopping is Franklin Avenue, with Lord & Taylor, Sears, destination stores, specialty shops and services. It is also the “Wall Street of Long Island,” and a financial hub by virtue of its banks, brokerage houses and insurance companies. Intersecting Franklin Avenue is Seventh Street, Garden City’s community shopping center. Twenty-eight fine distinction restaurants adorn both Franklin Avenue and Seventh Street. Award-winning landscape design contributes to the aesthetics of the central business district (recognized as a “cool downtown”) and to New Hyde Park Road at the western sector of the Village. The elegant and sophisticated Garden City Hotel is the fourth hotel erected on the same location since 1874. The 26-year old current Garden City Hotel is regarded as Long Island’s leading hotel. It maintains the demanding standards of www.gardencitychamber.org

Preferred Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. Just across from one of the Long Island Railroad’s five Garden City stations, the Hotel is approximately 45 minutes from New York City. There are eleven houses of worship in Garden City. The recently expanded Adelphi University and three private schools complement the toprated public school system of five elementary schools, a middle school and a high school. There are nine nursery schools and daycare centers. Recreational facilities for Village residents include playgrounds, tennis courts, a community park, swimming pool complex, new minature golf course, as well as three private golf clubs. There is a modern public library, affiliated with the Nassau County Library System. Village Hall is the center of municipal operations: public works, water supply, combined paid/volunteer fire department, and police department. Garden City is governed by the Community Agreement, an unusual and highly successful non-partisan arrangement. The mayor and trustees serve without pay, having been elected on a rotation basis, through the four property owners’ associations. The system has been a major force in preserving the character and desirability of Garden City as a unique residential community.

12 Years of Outdoor Dining April 1st - November 30th The Garden City Chamber of Commerce is proud to have spearheaded the outdoor dining project as a strategy to encourage shopping in Garden City. The Chamber requested the Village to change its code to allow outdoor dining by permit. The feature was implemented in May of 1997. Greatly looked forward to by both residents and visitors to the Village, alfresco dining has served as an enhancement for businesses on Franklin Avenue, Seventh Street and New Hyde Park Road. It continues to grow with twentyeight businesses possessing permits to provide this feature from springtime through fall.
