New St. Paul's plans to be revealed BY RIKKI N. MASSAND

With days to go before a first look at the concept for the reuse of the St. Paul’s building, for which Garden City has contracted with three prominent Manhattan architecture firms, the Board of Trustees began discussing associated costs during its July 10th meeting. Meanwhile preservationists reiterated an interest in keeping critical components and infrastructure of St. Paul’s intact, as the former private school building is on the National

Register of Historic Places. The Village will present the reuse concept at a special presentation planned for Tuesday, July 17th at 8 p.m. in the Casino, 51 Cathedral Ave. On Tuesday night as the Board of Trustees’ met, Deputy Mayor Theresa Trouvé asked Village Administrator Ralph Suozzi why $25,000 in funds was being paid to Beyer Blinder Belle on the agenda. The Board had to first approve a transfer of funds ($25,000) from the village Contingency account into the budget account for 2018-2019, “Capital Projects - St. Paul’s Facility.”

The cost was described as “additional expenditure of funds related to the development of the concept plan and public presentations, including rental of audio visual materials, printing, 3D imaging, and movie/film imaging, etc. “ Suozzi explained that there will be a series of presentations on the concept for St. Paul’s in late July. The three Manhattan-based architectural and engineering firms, all engaged by Garden City last fall for a total See page 22

The Garden City Board of Trustees voted 7-1 on Tuesday, July 10, to approve a use permit needed by developers of an apartment complex at 555 Stewart Avenue. A long series of biweekly public meetings and discussion at Board level culminated Tuesday with the approval of the 150 apartment, four story development. Residents opposed to the project were particularly critical that the developer many not have to pay their full school district taxes to Garden City Union Free Public Schools, because the developer plans to apply to an Industrial Development Agency for a tax break that would last from 10 to 20 years. The developer is 550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC, a company chaired by a prominent Kings Point jeweler and named for the parcel it owns with the same address across the road from 555 Stewart Avenue. The developer will have nine months from July 10, 2018, to obtain a site plan approval through regular village processes, involving the Architectural Design Review Board (ADRB) and then another nine months after that to obtain its first building permit for the project. Then the timeline to build the U-shaped structure is 15 months after the first building permit is issued or an extended period, per discretion of the Board of Trustees. Not addressed by the Board and residents this week, but reoccurring at many of the related proposals and hearings for 555 Stewart Avenue was the requirement that new developments in Garden City must include 10% of units as affordable housing. The attorney for the developer, Kevin Walsh, had stated several times that compliance with the ruling of Federal Judge Arthur D. Spatt would mean 15 affordable units and 135 See page 32

Understanding local government In this week's letters to the editor, former village trustee Dennis Donnelly describes the amount of hard work that the volunteer members of the board are required to do each month. After reading some comments online by residents who are unhappy about the proposed apartment complex at 555 Stewart Avenue we have to agree that there seems to be a fair number of residents who don't really understand how the Village government actually works. One comment we read suggested that residents should rise up in a class action suit because the board members aren't responsive enough to residents(!) Here's the thing: the members of the board are required to work within the

bounds of the law. If a property owner wants to develop a property, the board can't just arbitrarily refuse to consider it. There is a process to be followed, and the board is doing just that. And there will be further steps to be taken before 555 Stewart Avenue breaks ground. If a federal judge has ruled that multifamily housing must include affordable housing units, the board can't just ignore it because it bothers some people. We're not saying that the members of the board never make mistakes, nor are we saying that their actions shouldn't be above criticism. But at least take the time to understand the process before commenting.


Talk is Cheap

To the Editor: I was delighted to see how much attention my April Letter to the Editor received concerning the trash problem in ole GC. The additional letters of support helped evidence the immediate cry for attention. I was also pleased to see that our Village Trustees jumped on the bandwagon of support. The GC News documented the Trustees and Village Hall’s plan of action to remedy the trash problem. They came up with great ideas such as placing electronic trash can monitoring and adding seven or more receptacles. The brain storming was brilliant. Unfortunately, even with all this brainstorming, the trash still remains. Adding seven garbage cans is like throwing a deck chair off the Queen Mary - no one will notice. Let’s get real here. We need to put actual bodies on the ground to pick up the trash, supported by street sweeping trucks. In addition, the Village must enforce and hold businesses responsible to maintain the cleanliness of their storefronts to the curb. Retailers and businesses must post “Anti - Litter Signs” that bring attention to the problem. Signs must be posted on entrance roadways and all parking lots with listed fines. Garbage receptacles must be present in all Village parking lots with regularly scheduled pickups. Without this plan of action, the trash will continue to pile up and the rodent infestation will only increase, which will invade our homes and businesses. This is a Village problem and the businesses, residents, Trustees and Village Hall must all work together to address this ongoing issue. William Keegan

To Be a Trustee

To the Editor: In light of recent negative chatter on websites, blogs, emails, and in the local newspapers regarding the village trustees and their motives and responsibilities, even though the chatter comes from

a small but vocal number of persons and contains many incorrect “facts”, I thought some actual facts should be elucidated. The most recent chatter is centered around the apartment building proposed at 555 Stewart Avenue, but we have seen the same material over and over (often from the same people too!) and this type of venom rears its ugly head from time to time I had the pleasure of serving as a village trustee for six years, so I have some insight into the requirements and responsibilities necessary for the position. I state below some of the duties and tasks and other information about being a trustee or the mayor: • Trustees are nominated by their respective Property Owners’ Associations and elected by the village voters to a. two-year term. • The mayor and the trustees serve at no salary, zero compensation. No benefits, no perks. • The amount of material forwarded to each trustee weekly amounts to 40 to 50 equivalent pages of background material and details on upcoming issues facing the village. These are action items. • There are emails and conference calls on multiple issues, almost daily, providing information about various topics. • Meetings, in addition to the twice-monthly trustee meetings, include union negotiations, Environmental Committee, Zoning, Architectural Review, Planning Commission, Recreation Committee, meetings and conversations with counsel, vendors, other government officials, etc. • Often there are weekly meetings with village staff to gather information. • Preparation and adoption of an annual village budget over a threemonth period every year. Garden City has a $61 million budget of which approximately $51 million is raised by taxes. Trustees watch every dollar. The village has not exceeded the 2% tax cap. In fact the village maintains a triple-A rating from Moody’s - the highest See page 20

Library Welcomes New Director

The Garden City Public Library Board of Trustees is happy to announce that Marianne Malagon has accepted an offer to become director of the Garden City Public Library effective July 30th, 2018. Most recently, Ms. Malagon’s experience has been as a member of the management team at Nassau Library System (NLS) and as a Reference Librarian at the Syosset Public Library. The Library Board is very impressed with Ms. Malagon’s experience and is very confident in her success as director of the Garden City Public Library.

555 Stewart Avenue

At its July 10, 2018 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved 550 Stewart Avenue Acquisitions, LLC’s application for a use permit to develop a 150-unit multiple residence, inclusive of 15 affordable housing units, at the premises 555 Stewart Avenue. The Board had directed Special Counsel for Zoning Matters Tom Levin to draft a proposed decision granting the applicant’s special use permit request, which incorporates a list of conditions (i.e. units cannot be combined, the developer must provide insurance, the maximum number of units cannot exceed 150, the developer needs site plan approval by the Board of Trustees, to name a few). As of July 10, 2018, the developer has exactly nine months to obtain site plan approval and then another nine months to obtain building permits. Construction is restricted to 15 months after the first building permit is issued. At its June 21, 2018 meeting, Trustees adopted a local law to amend the Village code in relation to uses permitted in a new R-T District. The Board reviewed the zoning regulations in order to maintain the residential standards of the Village and also to meet the Village’s legally mandated obligations to provide housing opportunities. The Board also considered the recent adoption of legislation permitting QRD (Qualified Residential

Development) developments in the Village and evaluated the need to facilitate such developments in appropriate locations in the Village. As a consequence of this review, the Board concluded it would be appropriate and consistent with land use regulation principles, and the zoning classification and use of other properties in the Village, to amend the existing regulations in the R-T District to permit and facilitate QRD development of property located at 555 Stewart Avenue. Under the federal court order which resulted from the federal fair housing case decided in April 2014, the Village was required to consider and act upon the application. The Village could not, as a result of the federal court order, merely respond to the application citing the prior zoning of the property. The adopted local law will require a maximum plot area no less than three acres but not to exceed five acres; a maximum permitted Floor Area Ratio (FAR) not to exceed 0.99; a minimum plot area not less than 1,290 square feet for each dwelling unit; a maximum building lot coverage not to exceed 27 percent; a maximum building height not to exceed four stories nor a height of 45 feet; and a minimum front yard setback not less than 10 feet. To read Local Law 1-2018, click here.

2018 Road Paving Schedule

The paving schedule generally starts on one side of the Village and progresses to the other side. Once all the roads are paved, crews will move into parking lot paving. Typically, roads are paved before the parking lots because school is out and it has less impact on traffic. The work is expected to begin mid-summer. The following is the 2018 paving schedule: STREETLIMITS East Section: Huntington Road All Pine Street - Spring 2019 - Waiting for water main  Washington Avenue  to Grove Street Central Section: Eleventh Street All Hamilton Place  All Estates Section: Merillon Avenue  Nassau Boulevard to  Rockaway Avenue Brompton Road Stratford Avenue  to North Avenue Kensington Road Cambridge Avenue to  South Avenue Kensington Road North Avenue to  Stratford Avenue West Section: Harrison Stret Manor Road to Clinch Avenue Parking Fields: Clinton Road All Parking Field 8Area only behind CVS,  Waterzooi, Novita Sidewalk Improvements:

Clinton Road Flower Road  to Avalon Road St. Paul’s sidewalks  Rockaway Avenue  and Stewart Avenue Stewart Avenue South side from Clinton  Road to Ring Road

Sidewalk Construction Begins

Valente Contracting began sidewalk construction on  Huntington Road on Wednesday, July 11. Work began on the north side of the road at Washington Avenue and will continue heading east. Temporary road closures may occur to allow work to be done.  The road will be accessible for emergency vehicles.  The contractor was directed to begin work on Huntington Road instead of Merillon Avenue due to the ongoing construction (road base repair and catch basin repairs) being performed by road maintenance on Merillon Avenue. Schedule is subject to change and is weather permitting.

Meeting about St. Paul's Concept Plans July 17 at Casino

As previously advised, the Board of Trustees and members of staff have been working with three architectural and engineering firms to develop a

concept for creating a recreational-, performance- and community-based use for the Main Building at the former St. Paul’s School. The first of several public presentations will be held on Tuesday, July 17, at the Casino building at 7:00 p.m. The Casino building is located at the corner of Cathedral Avenue and Sixth Street. This is the first of several presentations. Note that the Casino building holds only a limited number of persons. So if you cannot get in or may be away – don’t worry. We will get the information out and onto our website and will have additional presentations. If you cannot get in – we apologize in advance. We do not have a facility large enough to allow for everyone who may be interested to attend the same presentation or at the same venue. Certain venues such as the Field House or Cluett Hall do not have air conditioning or are not physically conducive to audio visual presentations. We expect the next presentation will also be at the Casino building on Thursday, July 26, at 7:00 p.m. The presentation will consist of pictures, Powerpoint and video presentations. Our experts will be in attendance and will review the concept. We See page 10

GARDEN CITY UPDATE NEWS AND INFORMATION From page 9 are working through and will continue to work through the concept, costs and financing the proposal. There is much work to be done, but we think it is important to share with our residents information about the concept plans at this stage. As stated above, we anticipate adding more presentation dates and will make the materials available on the Village website. We hope that you can attend one of the presentations, which will be on different dates and at different times over the next several weeks to accommodate residents’ work and vacation schedules and the summer weather.

National Grid Work

Residents may notice an increased presence at the National Grid property located at its former MGP (Manufactured Gas Plant) site at Intersection Street, bordered by Second Street and Franklin Avenue. This is an active site as National Grid does have an underground station and monitoring stations there but the overall presence has been less for a few years. The presence will consist of pipe storage as well as some welding activities - mainly daytime work with some night work involved.  Work will be kept to the far corner of the property

closest to Franklin Avenue and away from the nearby apartment buildings. Mobilization to this location will begin in the next week or two. National Grid will maintain some type of presence there for a few years. For more information about this site, visit www. hempsteadintersectionstreetmgpsite. com/.

Summer Grilling Safety Tips

On July 8, the Garden City Fire Department was alerted to a propane BBQ fire next to a home on the west end of the Village. Upon arrival of Fire Department units, the homeowner was able to extinguish the fire with a garden hose. The resident was very lucky that the fire did not spread to the structure. As there was a small leak with the propane tank the Franklin Square-Munson Fire Department was called in to burn off the propane tank. One male resident was transported to Nassau University Medical Center with minor injuries. As July is the peak month for grilling fires, Chief Brian Gallo reminds everyone of some important safety facts: General Grilling Tips • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors. • The grill should be placed well away from the home and deck railings, and out from under eaves and

overhanging branches. • Keep children and pets away from the grill area. • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grill and in trays below the grill. • Never leave your grill unattended. Before You Use Your Grill • Check the major connection points between the gas (propane) tank hose and the regulator and cylinder, and where the hose connects to the burners. Tighten if loose. • Check the gas (propane) tank hose for potential (gas) leaks. To do that, apply a light soap and water solution to the hose using a brush or spray

bottle. Turn the propane tank on. If there is a gas leak, the propane will release bubbles (big enough to see) around the hose. If there are no bubbles, your grill is safe to use. If there are bubbles, turn off the tank and check connections, then have your grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak doesn’t stop, call the Fire Department immediately.

Board of Trustees Meeting

The next Board of Trustees meeting will be held Thursday, July 26, 2018 in the Village Hall Board Room beginning at 5:30 p.m. Please note the time change. All residents are encouraged to attend.

Having touched upon two hot button federal topics in the last two weeks, immigration and the Supreme Court (obviously, there will be much the last two more to say about these subjects going forward), it’s probably time to change focus a little bit. Accordingly, this week we’ll turn to the vagaries and oddities of the New York State election process. A good place to start is the petitioning requirement. In the last few weeks, many readers may have been asked to sign a designating petition for candidates of their party. Under New York law, minimum numbers of designating petitions by registered voters are required to place a candidate, on the ballot during the designating petitioning season. (There are a few exceptions relating to statewide candidates.) Of course, candidates always try to get far more than the minimum required because petitions can be challenged for all sorts of reasons, including some highly technical ones. Because there are now two different primary election dates, one for federal offices and the other for state and local offices, following a court ruling intended to protect the voting rights of members of the military in federal elections, there are now two separate petitioning seasons, one for federal candidates and another for state and local offices. While it probably makes sense to require that candidates show some level of support before appearing on a ballot, there is a strong suspicion that the petition requirements are largely intended to protect incumbents. Established political clubs and organizations have a much better knowledge of the ins and outs of gathering and filing petitions (and challenging the petitions of opposing candidates) than do most challengers. There also is no good reason why the federal primary day, which is in June, should not also be the primary day for state and local offices, producing a single petitioning season. However, incumbents prefer the current later September primary date since it gives opposing candidates chosen in the primary less time to mount an effective general elec-

tion campaign. Then there is the role of minor parties in the system. Basically, if a party gains 50,000 votes for governor in an election, it is deemed to be a ballot status party for the next four years, with the right to place candidates on the ballot by submitting a specified number of petitions from part members during the petition period. Additional parties must qualify for a ballot line during an additional period by collecting signatures from voters who have not previously signed petitions, a cumbersome process. Unlike most states, New York permits minor parties to cross endorse candidates of the Republican and Democratic parties and permits all votes for a cross endorsed party to be added together in calculating vote totals. While there always has been some issue of the tail wagging the dog, the minor party and cross endorsement system has at times played a useful role in shaping New York politics. The defunct Liberal Party for a number of years was an effective voice for labor unions, a role that is now played by the Working Families Party. The Conservative Party, founded in 1962, has long provided a political home to conservative voters dissatisfied with establishment Republican politicians. On the other hand, the minor party system has produced a number of clear anomalies. It’s widely believed that the Independence Party has numerous registered voters who think, based on the party name, that they are unaffiliated “independent” voters and do not realize that they have signed up as members of a ballot status party. The Stop Common Core Party, which got ballot status in 2014, has in effect been taken over by activist Curtis Sliwa and renamed the Reform Party. It may be wishful thinking to expect that, with a constitutional convention unlikely until at least 2037, incumbent legislators will effect much change in the New York election system. But our state surely can do better.

A memory of a great man BY GERRY KELLY When Bill Flynn passed earlier this summer, his name was known both on the international and local level. Bill’s leadership in the business community as chairman and president of Mutual of America, gave him the platform to influence multiple issues in government. His focus on the Troubles plaguing Northern Ireland and the greater European community was instrumental in bringing peace to a very thankful people. Mr. Flynn’s bold outreach to Gerry Adams and his conversations and sincere dialogue with all leaders in the region planted the seeds for the agreement which ended the Troubles. Bill Flynn took great risks enabling Gerry Adams to get a visa and passport to our country, but it began a friendship which was the foundation of the peace accord. Mr Flynn, a noted philanthropist, was a hero on the streets of Garden City for his generosity and human touch. The story of

Bill attending a basketball game at St. Joseph Gym has been told often, but a brief summary will provide you with insight: it was a typical CYO basketball game, things were heated. But the referee kept things calm, restoring order and balancing the coaches’ and players’ exuberance with a calm but deliberate manner which restored order and let the game be the focus. Afterwards, Mr. Flynn asked who was that referee? When he heard the referee was looking for a job, Mutual of America (Bill Flynn’s company) became the referee’s home for the next 20 years. I think it is always wise here in our village to reflect on the good fortune we have in GC when business leaders focus on the importance of the soul in their work. Bill Flynn is an example we all can try to exemplify. Gerry Kelly (GCHS ‘75) was the proud teammate of two of Bill Flynn’s sons, Bill, Jr (74) and Jimmy (75).

municipal rating on all of Long Island. • The village workforce has been reduced from 316 to 245 employees in the last few years saving the residents millions by strategically outsourcing some non-essential services. The job of a trustee requires a love of this village and a desire to maintain and improve every aspect of village life. When people recklessly and without basis maliciously comment that someone must have been “paid off”, or the trustees “lied” about receiving a petition, or the door to a meeting was locked to prevent people from commenting on an issue, or that something nefarious was at hand for not recording phone calls, or that “kickbacks” influenced the decision making or we should start a class-action suit, such comments need to be loudly criticized as irresponsible and improper. These comments are not only careless and degrading but also reckless and pejorative and do nothing to make Garden City a better place. In fact, they hurt us all because why would anyone volunteer for a position if they get nothing but criticism and reputational harm? It is very easy to criticize. But correct information is important. Just because someone says something at some forum, it doesn’t mean it is accurate. Those statements then get repeated over and over and quoted in an article and others take that to mean it contains the truth. If you want a change in our village government structure (which costs taxpayers Nothing, ZERO), then get involved. Take the time to know the issues, talk to your trustees, ask questions, delve into the agenda. Don’t show up once to a meeting in the 10 or more year that you have lived here and, with no background of information except rumors circulated at a soccer game or on some blog, and with no experience in municipal finance, municipal labor

laws, zoning law or affordable housing, and offer your “expertise” on some particular topic. Imagine the reception you would receive in your office if you offered your opinion on a matter under those circumstances. The village website is full of very useful information. Transparency is a constant in Garden City and all meetings are open to the public. We can be thankful that over the last hundred years our fellow residents have stepped up and offered themselves as volunteers and elected trustees. The Village Boards and commissions are comprised of citizen volunteers. The Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, Architectural Review Board, Environmental Advisory Board, Recreation Commission and Library Board are all non-paid positions. You might not agree with every decision made by the Board of Trustees or other Boards and Commissions, but try to understand them and the context in which they are made. I know each of the current trustees and the mayor and I can assure you that each one of them cares very deeply about the Village, works hard, knows each and every issue and always does what is right for Garden City. If you check the Village website under the Fair Housing tab, you will find the “Memorandum of Decision and Order” which explains the Federal court’s decision in the Fair Housing Case. Before you speak out against “affordable housing” or apartments, read the decision and order of a United States Federal Court. The tab labeled “Zoning Change Committee” will take you to the section explaining the recommendations of the Committee regarding the proposal for multi-family housing at 555 Stewart Avenue.

St. Paul's plans to be revealed at special July 17 meeting From page 1 of $100,000 allocated in separate Board resolutions (first $60,000, then another $40,000) are Beyer Blinder Belle, Eight Inc., and Thornton Tomasetti. Only one of the three contracted firms, Beyer, Blinder, Belle, referred to as BBB, was listed as the engaged consultants for the additional $25,000 cost, “authorizing the Village of Garden City.” “These funds are an additional allocation for the companies presenting to the Board of Trustees, starting the 17th. These funds allow them to supplement the drawings, build placards, hire A/V technical help and basically mobilize the presentations on St. Paul’s. We did not know exactly how much money was needed so a significant amount ($25,000) and much more than is expected to be used was placed on the resolution so we ca cover any expenses related to them,” Suozzi said. Trouvé said that the number of presentations ahead should not mean the village would incur additional expenses to set up each one, as a recurring cost. She told Administrator Suozzi and her fellow trustees they should expect a breakdown of the cost of these presentations. Suozzi says he imagined the itemized costs to be part of the invoice for the village. He added that any materials and video/computer images themselves will be re-used and the only cost not allocated already might be the fee for A/V technical help on the second presentation, which according to village officials will be on either July 26 or 28. Mayor Brian Daughney said at the time the three firms were being engaged by the Village of Garden City, starting last summer, the costs of presentations and the type of materials and visuals for the project’s concept could not have been estimated yet. “We did not yet know what kind of presentation(s) we wanted to make – we have added a film or movie to this presentation and we had not thought of that way back when,” he said. Trouvé countered that there should be no situation where money is added on again and again due to upcoming presentations, bringing the project’s initial costs (for the firms plus production) even higher. “I think we should have known that up front (last fall) when we made the investments totaling $100,000),” she said. Suozzi said the $25,000 approved by the Board July 10 would be a wise investment, as “the visuals bring the potential of the project to life.” He added that the next step for the Board of Trustees on St. Paul’s and the work of the three firms would have different; “totally new objectives and deliverables.” He calls the presentations starting Tuesday July

17 and the costs behind them the culmination of the first phase in the concept plans for St. Paul’s, and ahead there will be a “totally different budget” which the Board based such decisions and allocations on.

Preservationist interviewed

This week The Garden City News interviewed Sarah Kautz, preservation director of the nonprofit Preservation Long Island, based in Cold Spring Harbor (the organization formerly known as the SPLIA, the Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities). In 2010 SPLIA had put St. Paul’s on its list of the top Endangered Historic Places on Long Island, and that followed the designation of St. Paul’s under the Preservation League of New York State’s “Seven to Save” in 2003. Kautz’s commentary on the future of St. Paul’s and its historical significance was featured in the News in August and September of 2017. Eleven months later, she says the organization will be able to write letters and provide its input to the Village of Garden City once the presentations take place and the group has had time to absorb the materials and designs. She is also baffled by the fact that since the plan to make a recreational center out of St. Paul’s was put forward last summer, the Village of Garden City has yet to apply for any grants or funding related to historic preservation efforts at St. Paul’s. “I am not sure why the village hasn’t done that yet and it is a missed opportunity. There are still similar monies and grants are available as there were last year at this time, and certainly with a site like St. Paul’s there would be great enthusiasm to look at the application and preservation. She says Preservation Long Island and other historical preservation groups hope for “a robust planning for rehabilitating the existing structure.” Kautz noted that with any anticipated state and federal grants or funding specifically for preservation, it would not cover a cost of tens of millions that a state-of-the art recreational facility might be. “It all depends what the plans, designs and specs are and we will have to see what they’ve come up with. The preservation of just the façade (exterior of the building visible from Stewart Avenue) would not be acceptable. The interior of the St. Paul’s building and layout of rooms, the floor plans, the interiors, and different kinds of decorations and interior finishing – all of it is part of the building and the history and architecture; its story. If you lose all that you’d lose a big part of its story. Without that full experience you are See page 35

Break Free from Neuropathy with a New Supportive Care Cream A patented relief cream stands to help millions of Americans crippled from the side effects neuropathy by increasing sensation and blood flow wherever it’s applied Raymond Wilson The Associated Health Press AHP − A recent breakthrough stands to help millions of Americans plagued by burning, tingling and numb legs and feet. But this time it comes in the form of a cream, not a pill, suggesting the medical community may have been going about the problem all wrong. The breakthrough, called Diabasens, is a new relief cream developed for managing the relentless discomfort caused by neuropathy. When applied directly to the legs and feet, it causes arteries and blood vessels to expand, increasing the flow of warm, nutrient rich blood to damaged tissue. However, what’s most remarkable about the cream...and what makes it so that it contains one of the only natural substances known to activate a special sensory pathway right below the surface of the skin. This pathway is called TRAP1 and it controls the sensitivity of nerves. In laymen terms, it determines whether you feel pins and needles or soothing relief. Studies show that symptoms of neuropathy arise when the nerves in your legs deteriorate and blood flow is lost to the areas which surround them. As the nerves begins to die, sensation is lost. This lack of sensation is what causes the feelings of burning, tingling and numbness. This is why the makers of Diabasens say their cream has performed so well in a recent clinical use survey trial. It increases sensation and blood flow where ever its applied.

No Pills, No Prescriptions, No Agony Until now, many doctors have failed to consider a topical cream as an effective way to manage neuropathy. Diabasens is proving it may be the only way going forward. “Most of today’s treatment methods have focused on minimizing discomfort instead of attacking its underlining cause. That’s why millions of adults are still in excruciating pain every single day, and are constantly dealing with side effects” explains Dr. Esber, the creator of Diabasens. “Diabasens is different. Since the most commonly reported symptoms − burning, tingling and numb legs and feet − are caused by lack of sensation of the nerves, we’ve designed the formula increase their sensitivity. And since these nerves are located right below the skin, we’ve chosen to formulate it as a cream. This allows for the ingredients to get to them faster and without any drug like side effects” he adds.

Study Finds Restoring Sensation the Key To Effective, Long Lasting Relief With the conclusion of their latest human clinical use survey trial, Dr. Esber and his team are now offering Diabasens nationwide. And regardless of the market, its sales are exploding. Men and women from all over the country are eager to get their hands on the new cream and, according to the results initial users reported, they should be. In the trial above, as compared to baseline, participants taking Diabasens saw a staggering 51% increase sensitivity in just one week. This resulted in significant relief from burning, tingling and nubmness throughout their legs. Many participants taking Diabasens described feeling much more balanced and comfortable throughout the day. They also noticed that after applying, there was a pleasant warming sensation that was remarkably soothing.

Diabasens Users Demand More Many of Diabasens users say their legs have never felt better. For the first time in years, they are able to walk free from the symptoms which have made life hard. “I have been using the cream now for about ten days. It has given me such relief.  I’ve had very bad foot pain from injuries and overuse of my feet for years which have contributed to severe itching/tingling and pain for some time.  (My father also suffered from this pain and itching. I wish I would have had this for him.)  The first time I used the cream, I felt an almost immediate relief from this.  I now  use  it at least twice a day: once in the morning before work and once at night before I sleep.  I am so delighted with this.  It has helped my walking, also. It has helped generate feeling again in my feet,” raves Marsha A. from Texas

Diabasens is shown to provide relief from: • Burning • Swelling • Tingling • Heaviness • Numbness • Cold extremities Targets Nerve Damage Right Below the Skins Surface Diabasens is a topical cream that is to be applied to your legs and feet twice a day for the first two weeks then once a day after. It does not require a prescription.

Topical Creams Offer Sufferers a Safer, More Effective Avenue of Relief: Diabasens increases sensation and blood flow wherever its applied. It’s now being used to relieve painful legs and feet.

The active ingredient is a compound known as cinnamaldehyde. Studies show that neuropathy and nerve pain is caused when the peripheral nerves breakdown and blood is unable to circulate into your legs and feet. As these nerves deteriorate, sensation is lost. This is why you may not feel hot or cold and your legs and feet may burn, tingle and go numb. Additionally, without proper blood flow, tissues and cells in these areas begin to die, causing unbearable pain. The cinnamaldehyde in Diabasens is one of the only compounds in existence that can activate TRPA1, a special sensory pathway that runs through your entire body. According to research, activating this pathway (which can only be done with a cream) increases the sensitivity of nerves, relieving feelings of tingling and numbness in your legs and feet. Supporting ingredients boost blood flow, supplying the nerves with the nutrients they need for increased sensation.

Amazing Relief Exactly Where You Need It With daily use, Diabasens users report remarkable improvements in their quality of life without of the negative side effects or interactions associated with prescription drugs. Readers can now enjoy an entirely new level of comfort that’s both safe and affordable. It is also extremely effective, especially if nothing else has worked.

As such, the company is offering a special discounted supply to any reader who calls within the next 48 hours. A special hotline number and discounted pricing has been created for all New York residents. Discounts will be available starting today at 6:00AM and will automatically be applied to all callers.

Board approves permit for 555 Stewart project From page 1

market rate apartments at the new complex, which is expected to charge rents of up to $5,900 or $6,000 a month for its three-bedroom units and $4,300 for the majority two-bedroom units (market rates). Walsh detailed the rental criteria for the affordable housing units and the application process, as residents would need to apply and meet income percentages of the mean for Nassau and Suffolk Counties. The approval by the Board came after a public question about several aspects of the project. Special zoning counsel for the Village of Garden City A. Tom Levin of the firm Meyer, Suozzi, English, and Klein, P.C. stated that in addition to the materials and scope of the developer’s application, the village had its own traffic study conducted by a consultant, and submissions from its consulting firms H2M Engineering of Hauppauge and Nelson & Pope (civil engineering and surveying). The traffic study was questioned by residents speaking at the meeting, at which time Levin said the consultant for it was Ron Hill of H2M. David Matheny, a 1997 graduate of Garden City High School and resident of Fourth Street, contested several items of the application as he was puzzled by the lack of information he’s seen on the

village website as well as the disconnect from the school district and the Board of Trustees concerning the number of residents (school children) attending the district’s schools who currently live in apartments in Garden City. Trustee Louis Minuto and Mayor Brian Daughney asked him to consider, in the time he was in public school here, how many of his friends and classmates lived in apartments in the village. Matheny contested that this is not the same real estate world and overall society as in the 1990s. Trustee Colleen Foley, who spoke from her experience as the school board’s president and a school board trustee for over a decade, said that the number was consistently low, and Minuto and Mayor Daughney backed her up on that. Then Foley explained the responsibility of the Board of Education as mutually exclusive from the Village Board, as the school board is tasked with ensuring the quality and performance of the district as well as planning ahead for the development in town, including major housing projects such as the 150 apartments for 555 Stewart Avenue. “I encourage you to go to the school board meeting as it is their job, every single day, to ensure the quality of the schools. Having been on the school board for over 12 years and serving as its president for six, the amount

of students produced from condos and apartments in this area, culturally and traditionally in our community, is anywhere from 50 to 80 students on a high year which is still very low,” Foley said. Mayor Daughney and Trustee Minuto tried to explain to residents that there was no potential for a drastic change in student population that the Garden City Public Schools could not prepare for and gear the district budget towards, because the DoubleDay Court condos and apartments on Stewart Avenue did not generate many school students. Foley explained that when the DoubleDay condos were built there was negligible effect on district enrollment, and furthermore the school district must plan for the migration of existing families in the district as well as new student enrollment. The mayor suggested that Matheny review the last (2018-2019) budget materials distributed from Garden City Public Schools which alludes to the unexpected boom of lower grades population, with over 100 children unanticipated before last summer (2017) enrolled in the days before the 20172018 school year. The phenomena was reported in The Garden City News after the first Board of Education meeting last fall and it was discussed by school district trustees as they prepared for the 2018-2019 budget. Village Trustee

Foley also explained that the district must begin its preparations for each school year at least in the fall preceding the following year, for example this October and November would see preparations for 2019-2020. Foley says any type of a “trickle down effect” with more students coming into the school district because of turnover in housing stock in Garden City, with more families with kids moving in consistently, “can happen whether this development goes up or not.” She says this is a clear point first made by Mayor Daughney, as “people are not selling their house here based on whether or not a 150-unit project in the village is going to be completed.” On June 21 Trustee Robert Bolebruch was the lone member of the Board of Trustees to vote against the change to the village’s zoning code to accommodate the building of 555 Stewart Avenue, and he mentioned that this week as he explained to Matheny and other residents how frustrating it was not to get the full amount of information on schools’ enrollment and the number of students living in apartments from the district, as the Board stated it had requested on multiple occasions. Rochelle Dowling of Hilton Avenue asked about the developer’s reimburseSee page 46

“As a former D1 lacrosse defender at Boston College, Jackie provided very valuable, technical and motivating advice to my daughter (also a defender). The team got progressively better as the year went on being trained under Jackie, playing its best lacrosse in their summer tournaments. My daughter is enjoying her lacrosse experience and gets to play with several friends from Garden City”. -Billy, Garden City Resident

“Both my daughters play for Medusa. We could not be happier! Jackie provides an environment where the kids have fun while learning at the same time. My girls have improved so much during their time at Medusa. Jackie’s commitment to the players is evident. Medusa provides an atmosphere where everyone feels like family. I tell me daughters all the time – ‘wall ball, wall ball, wall ball’. It wasn’t until Jackie set up a contest among team members that my girls started to play wall ball every day consistently. Jackie is always creating ways to teach these young women the game that she is so passionate about - and it is working! Thank you for all you do!” - Kathy, Rockville Centre Resident “My daughters love playing for Medusa. The program offers a unique opportunity for our girls to play lacrosse in a competitive environment that offers much more than winning and losing games. The girls learn to develop their skills and knowledge of the game in a manner that fosters team work and being part of a community bigger than themselves.” -Pat, Rockville Centre Resident

Medusa Lacrosse was established in 2011 by Jackie and Alex Fiore. We understand that choosing the right club team can sometimes feel like a daunting decision. At Medusa, we are committed to keeping our roster numbers low, our teams competitive, and our coaching top notch. We have 1 team per age group, so each of our teams is an ‘A’ team. Because of this approach, we get to know each player and their parents very well. This allows us to be uniquely positioned to understand the needs and desires of our team and our players. Additionally, we have a number of connections at the collegiate level and we are fully invested in helping each player find the right fit

THIS WEEK AT ROTARY County Executive Reports to Rotary and New Club President Inducted

The Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club was honored to have had Nassau County Executive Laura Curran speak to members and guests at its luncheon on July 9th at the Garden City Hotel. The Private Dining Room was filled to capacity with many guests, pro-

spective members, past presidents two past District Governors and District Governor Nominee. The draw was an update on myriad County issues and plans for the County as it moves forward by Laura Curran. Members and guests had also come to celebrate the induction of new Rotary Club President Joanne Meyer-Jendras.

County Executive Curran reviewed accomplishments throughout the first six months of her term, including team efforts to restore trust in County government, future plans for Nassau County with focus on economic development, plus plans to build a police academy near Nassau Community College.

From page 22 losing a lot about what the building was originally built for and what the designs were. That does not mean you can’t change anything,” she said.

Many groups invited to presentations

In addition to catching the eye of Preservation Long Island and other statewide and national preservation organizations, since late June, The Garden City News has confirmed that interested parties in the village will be attending the presentations starting on July 17. On June 26, the Village Department Head of Recreation and Parks, Kevin Ocker, advised via email that the entire Board of Commissioners of Recreation and Cultural Affairs (Rec. Commission) were invited to attend the July 17 presentation. “Also representatives from sports organizations will be made aware of the presentation,” he said. On Tuesday Gloria Jones, recording secretary for the Garden City Historical Society, confirmed that GCHS membership was notified of the coming presentation July 17 via e-blast. The Historical Society was set to hold its regular monthly Board of Directors’ meeting on Thursday, July 12. Maureen Traxler, longtime treasurer of the Garden City Historical Society, told the News on July 11 that a GCHS Preservation meeting held on July 10, concurrent with the last Board of Trustees’ meeting, helped residents “batting around ideas on what to expect from next week’s presentation.” She says community members and the GCHS members should and will look forward to reports, visuals and documents from the consultants, which are expected to be posted on the village website in addition to July’s live and in-person presentations. Kautz is also eagerly awaiting the full renderings, documents and diagrams to be posted online by the Village of Garden City. “We will definitely take a harder look and then I have a Preservation Committee, composed of members of trustees and experts in the field (historians, architects, etc.) in the area. I work with them on reviewing nominations of sites for the Endangered Places List and selecting listings or awardees. They will be providing feedback on a St. Paul’s concept, in addition to the Preservation Long Island staff and our executive director,” she explained. In her comments to the News this week, Kautz commended the efforts from the Garden City Historical Society as outspoken local advocates for preservation. She encourages members of the community here to follow the lead and present all of their questions, ideas and suggestions to the local elected officials (the Board of Trustees).

“It is exciting that they (the village) hired Beyer Blinder Belle as part of the group working on a St. Paul’s concept because they have done some great work on really challenging projects. Historic Preservation-wise, BBB has examples of work that are pretty good. The TWA building (the TWA Flight Center at JFK airport) is a great example. They did terrific work on the JP Morgan Library in Manhattan, which was a massive project. The Morgan Library is of the same era (late 1800s) as St. Paul’s is and that was JP Morgan’s residence in New York City. In there, Morgan had a fabulous library built, and it became a functional museum which has been expanded,” Kautz said. On Beyer Blinder Belle’s website the description of the firm’s work in restoring the former TWA terminal includes a series of phases for the planning and construction, from addressing structural components to the appearance (a famous butterfly-shaped exterior). “In 2002, BBB embarked upon stabilization of the building, rendering it secure and weather-tight. Concurrently, a strategy for restoration and redevelopment was formulated based upon extensive research, interviews with surviving members of the original design team, and the analysis of archival materials. Central objectives of the restoration included removal of inappropriate exterior additions; repair of failing concrete and restoration of the historic landside entrance; and restoration of the predominant public areas of the Terminal, including the main entrance, the lower and upper lobbies and the flight tubes.” “BBB has restored the exterior of the building and completed the primary interior spaces, addressing many important life safety concerns such as smoke evacuation modeling, detection, annunciation, and egress. Returned to its finely-detailed glory, the building is prepared for reuse as a hotel, restaurant and meeting center complex,” the firm states. The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City, which Kautz says has the most parallels to St. Paul’s in terms of history and renovation effort, began in 1890 as (J.P.) Pierpont Morgan assembled his collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints. The facility was built between 1902 and 1906, and according to its website, “was intended as something more than a repository of rare materials. Majestic in appearance yet intimate in scale, the structure was to reflect the nature and stature of its holdings.” Morgan’s son Jack donated the Library and Museum in 1924, making it one of See page 46

George Risley Larie

George Risley Larie

George Risley Larie of Charlottesville, Virginia, died on the 4th of July, 2018 at Westminster Canterbury of the Blue Ridge. He was born in Dallas, Texas on February 24, 1927, the son of Paul Gibson Larie and Elizabeth Bernice Risley Larie. He is survived by his wife, Janet Elizabeth Whaley Larie, whom he married on October 18, 1958, and their two children, Paul Risley Larie of Londonderry, NH and Elizabeth Bennett Larie of Brooklyn. A sister, Joan Elizabeth Larie Bell, preceded him in death. Sarah Levitan Larie, daughter-in-law, Kimberly Michelle Larie, granddaughter, Philip Risley Larie and

Dale Bennett Larie, grandsons, survive him. He is also survived by Sally and Robert Whaley of Charlottesville, Janie Whaley of Chapel Hill, NC, brother and sisters-in law, and numerous nieces and nephews. Mr. Larie graduated from the Manhasset, New York High School in 1944. He enlisted in the U.S. Army five days after his graduation, and served until 1946. He was sent to Princeton University and Texas A&M as a member of the Army Specialized Training Program [ASTP]. Later he served in the Corp of Engineers. Upon his discharge, he attended Columbia University, graduating in 1949 with a degree in industrial engineering. At Columbia, he was a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. Years later, he attended Adelphi University at night and earned an MBA degree with distinction in 1975. He was a member of Delta Mu Delta, National Honor Society in Business Administration and was elected to Adelphi’s Corridor of Distinguished Alumni. Upon graduation from Columbia, Mr. Larie worked for Procter and Gamble as an industrial engineer and manufacturing line supervisor. In 1952 he joined Doubleday and Company, an association which lasted 36 years until his retirement in 1988. Starting as an industrial engineer, he progressed through various positions, becoming plant manager of the Berryville Virginia plant in 1965. While he was a member of

the manufacturing organization, he was part of a team that developed an integrated book manufacturing machine, starting with a white roll of paper and ending with a finished jacketed hard bound book as a continuous process. In 1970, he became vice president and director of book club fullfillment. In this position he assumed responsibility for Doubleday’s relationship with the Post Office. He became part of MTAC, the Mailers Technical Advisory Committee, an industry group which worked with the Postmaster General to find ways for major mailers and the Post Office to work together in a more efficient manner. He was chairman of the Association of American Publishers Postal Committee. Later, he became a divisional president of Doubleday, and was elected corporate vice president in 1980. Mr. Larie was a lifelong member of the Society of the Descendants of Hartford Connecticut through his mother’s Risley family heritage. He was a 10th generation descendant of Richard Risley, who landed at Cambridge Massachusetts in 1633 as a part of the Thomas Hooker party, which group founded Hartford, CT in 1636. Mr. Larie was a member of the Risley Family Association founded in 1905, and which continues to meet annually. Mr. Larie was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church where he served as an elder and as chairman of the Board of Trustees.


Richard Varney

Richard Varney

Former Garden City resident Richard Varney passed away peacefully in Quiogue, New York on Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018, after a protracted battle with colon cancer. He was fifty-five years old.

Richard was one of the most formidable intellects ever to pass through the Garden City public school system, graduating from Garden City High School as valedictorian of the Class of 1980 with a list of honors too long to recount here. Following high school, Richard matriculated at Harvard University, from which he graduated cum laude with a degree in general studies. After Harvard, he took his considerable talents to the policy world, first as an assistant to a Massachusetts’ state legislator and later to Capitol Hill as a member of the staff of Sid Morrison, a six term Congressman from Washington State. Richard then transitioned to the private sector, spending several years working for Manpower, Inc., a multinational placement agency, before spending his final years as a freelance writer. Not surprisingly, Richard devoted a good deal of time to his intense love of books and literature, particularly poetry. In recent years, he resided on Shelter Island,

where he had spent summers as a youth. In addition to his writing, Richard was passionate about his leadership of the Art Barnett Poetry Roundtable at the Shelter Island Public Library, guiding that group through selections of poetry, some of which came from his own extensive collection and featured many of his personal favorites, including Pound, Auden, Stevens, Lowell and Moore. The group was recently renamed The Art Rich Poetry Group in honor of Richard. He is survived by his mother Florence Varney, the former longtime truancy officer at Garden City High School, and his sister Caroline Varney, both of Shelter Island. “Yet my heart rises, I know I’ve gladdened a lifetime knotting, undoing a fishnet of tarred rope; the net will hang on the wall when the fish are eaten, nailed like illegible bronze on the futureless future.” - Robert Lowell

He was a past president of the Colthurst Property Owners Association, President of the CharlottesvilleAlbemarle Transportation Coalition [CATCO], a nonprofit group of volunteers who successfully opposed the construction of the Route 29 bypass in Charlottesville. He served as chairman of the Albemarle County Board of Equalization. Mr. Larie was an Albemarle County representative on the Charlottesville/Albemarle Transportation Study committee [CATS 2015] which produced the regional transportation plan for this area. For many years he was very active in the Boy Scouts of America program. He was a former member of the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club where he enjoyed racing the Manhasset Bay One Design sailboat in Long Island sound. He was a member of the Boar’s Head Sports Club, and was an active tennis player for many years. He was a member of the Ivy Creek Natural Area, and served as a guide for school tours. A service of celebration will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Saturday, July 14th at 2 PM. His ashes will be placed in the memorial garden at the church. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Joan Larie Bell Scholarship Fund in the Curry School of Education through the University of Virginia Fund, PO Box 3446, University Station, Charlottesville,VA 22903.

Schoharie Crossing, Mabee Farm, Cohoes Falls to Finish Line in Albany of 8-Day, 400-Mile Cycle the Erie BikeTour BY KAREN RUBI TRAVEL FEATURES SYNDICATE GOINGPLACESFARANDNEAR.COM To see how America came to be – and what really made America great – you need only to join Parks & Trails NY’s annual eight-day, 400-mile Cycle the Erie Bike Tour from Buffalo to Albany. This becomes clear as we finish out the ride, which takes us from one of the oldest colonial trading posts, through urban neighborhoods that rose out of the Industrial Revolution, then declined in the post-Industrial period, and now are being revitalized. A highlight on Day 7 of Parks & Trails NY’s annual 8-day, 400mile Cycle the Erie biketour from Buffalo to Albany is Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site. It looks fairly innocuous at first, a farm house along the canal, but here is the only place where you can see all three alignments of the Erie Canal - the 1825 “Clinton’s Ditch”, the 1836 expanded canal and the modern, 1918 “Barge Canal.” The house, now a visitor center, contains a fascinating exhibit and is adjacent to outlines of Fort Hunter, an 18th century fort and trading post, remarkably only discovered after Hurricane Irene in 2011. The historic flooding caused the Schoharie Creek to breach its banks

Cohoes Falls, one of the most powerful falls east of the Rockies, posed a major challenge for the Erie Canal engineers © Karen Rubin/ and destroyed the site’s parking lot. Aafter the flood water receded, a number of stone walls and numerous artifacts associated with Fort Hunter emerged. Excavations revealed flat stone foundations upon which a fort wall and 24-foot

square blockhouse would have been constructed. After the archaeological work was completed, these original fort foundations were preserved by reburying them. Their exact locations are now represented on


the surface with modern stone pavers. Artifacts recovered during excavation included a mix of domestic and military objects that represent the site’s Mohawk and See page D2

Schoharie Crossing, Mabee Farm, Cohoes Falls to Finish Line in Albany of 8-Day, 400-Mile Cycle the Erie BikeTour

Continued from page D1 British occupants. Dates associated with the artifacts suggest that the blockhouse saw greatest use from the 1740s to 1760. Though you don’t really see anything of Fort Hunter, it points to how significant this area was in colonial times: Schoharie was a place of key interactions between Europeans and Indians, setting up a later clash of cultures. During the 1600s, the British and French competed for control here. In the 1690s, the British forged an alliance with

the Iroquois to establish a permanent structure - a fort/trading post - in order to solidify their standing. The Indians at the time of the Revolutionary War were settled on farms and in towns. They employed European style farming techniques, lived in houses, and the gender roles started to shift away from the matriarchal society to male-dominated, copying the Europeans. By the time of the Revolutionary War, there might have been about 10,000 Indians living in the area.

“They didn’t have a concept of property ownership. They were outnumbered early on” largely because of the diseases the Europeans brought that wiped out large numbers of the population, and over-trapping which pushed many further west. “They were very good at diplomacy - well organized - and controlled access to the waterways. They played the European powers,” David Brooks, Education Coordinator says. Most interesting at Schoharie Crossing is you can stand over the East Guard Lock - the original 1820s “Clinton Ditch” canal (now overgrown) - and see the same scene, minus water, as depicted in a historic photo. Facing the other direction, standing beside the water, you can look over to what remains of the Schoharie Creek Aqueduct, built between 1835 and 1841 for the enlarged canal. This once grand 14-arch, 624-foot long aqueduct carried the canal above and apart from the Schoharie Creek (it enabled the canal to continue to function during flooding). The aqueduct was abandoned in 1917 when the Barge Canal opened on the Mohawk River, and over the years it declined so only six of the arches remain. A short bike ride further along the trail, you can visit Yankee Hill Lock #28 and the Putman Canal Store - the last double lock that was completed in eastern New York. The Putman’s Lock Grocery was constructed in 1856 and owned by the Garrett Putman family

into the 1900s. (Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, 129 Schoharie St., Fort Hunter, NY 12069, 518-8297516, Mabee Farm The initial appeal for me to join Parks & Trails NY’s annual Cycle the Erie bike tour was the exciting prospect of biking 400 miles, point to point, mostly without cars (and mostly on a flat trail), across New York State, with support services to carry our gear and host meals. But each and every day, I am pleasantly amazed at the array of sites to explore and discover. The Parks & Trails NY people who have designed the tour not only arrange visits at important sites along the way, but for morning and afternoon rest stops at interesting attractions that you might not have considered visiting on your own. This is the case for our afternoon rest stop (at Mile 33.6), at the Mabee Farm Historic Site, which also houses the Schenectady Historical Society Museum. Here, you can visit the Mabee’s 1705 Dutch-style Stone House, which was owned by the Mabee family until 1999. This is one of the oldest homes in New York State and the oldest in the Mohawk Valley. It was first built in 1670 by Daniel Janse Van Antwerpen, who, it is believed, opened it as a furtrading post. The property was sold to Jan Pieterse Mabee in 1705 and the house stayed in the Mabee family for a remarkable 288 years. It was given

to the Schenectady County Historical Society in 1993 by George Franchere, the last descendant of the Mabee line, for the purpose of being a museum and education center. It is a surprise to most who visit these colonial sites to learn that slavery was practiced here, beginning after Jan Mabee’s death in 1725 and ended 100 years later in 1827 with Jacob Mabee, his great grandson (when New York State abolished slavery). Among the 583 original documents from the farm are three bills of sale for slaves, wills giving slaves to children and a receipt from the Crown Point Expedition in 1755 when a trusted slave, Jack, was sent to Fort Edward and Lake George with supplies, two weeks before the Battle of Lake George. “What is significant about the Mabee family is that they were ordinary,” the docent says. Jan Mabee, born in Holland, bought the property from a neighbor in 1705, and lived in the cellar as he built the house. Jan and his wife Annette had 8 kids. The house partly made out of stone; the wood beams are 1000 years old. Jan was likely involved in the illegal trapping business. His wife was part Mohawk so they had a good relationship with the local Indians. The Dutch were

tolerant and fair with the tribes (it was the British and French who cheated them). Over the years, the house was turned into the Mabee Inn. Simon Mabee farmed the land and when he died, he left everything but the Inn to his son, Jacob; he left the inn to his two sisters. It turns out that the Mabee farm is more than a history lesson, but a study of a dysfunctional family. “Jacob was not a nice man. Jacob evicted them. He hired a carpenter and flipped the staircase around so they have no way to get up to the second floor. He built a new door. The sisters lived in one room. Jacob died 6 years later and the land passed to Margaret.” Just outside the house is the family cemetery. You can visit the 1760s Nilsen Dutch Barn, see the beautiful Mohawk River flow alongside the site. Tied to the dock or parked behind the Dutch Barn is a reproduction 18th century bateaux, the De Sagar and the Bobbie G , which provides an idea of how goods were shipped up and down the river. During our visit, a country fair is underway. (Mabee Farm Historic Site, 100 Main St (Rte 5s), Rotterdam Junction, NY 12150, 518-887-5073, schenectadyhistorical. org/sites).

As I See It: When New York City was New York City BY LOU THEODORE As most of you know, I was born in New York City in 1934 and called it home until 1970. My first 7 years were spent in the north end of Hell’s Kitchen. The next 12 years were spent in an area that is known as Lincoln Center. The last 17 years of those were spent in Astoria, Queens. In effect, NYC was my home for the first 36 years of my life. This tale is the second of a 2-part article concerned with New York City during that 36 year time period. I made a conscious decision to split the “When New York City was New York City” article into two timeframes: 1934-1953 and 1953-1970. The first part appeared in August 2017; it keyed on life in Hell’s Kitchen and naturally, the material was autobiographical. Flash back to 1953 and the tale of this piece begins in Astoria, Queens – my new residence at that time. World War II is a thing of the past and a fleeting memory. The Great Depression is also a fleeting memory. Gone is the Office of Price Administration (OPA) and the accompanying rationing via coupons, and, to a lesser degree, tokens. Jobs abound. Good-paying jobs. Some really good-paying jobs. The worm had indeed

turned. Our great nation is experiencing boom economic times along with superpower status due, in part, to a combination of democracy and capitalism. Perhaps even more important was the Marshall Plan, devised by General George C. Marshall. The World War II period had converted out nation into a manufacturing giant. But, the economic boom was about to come to a halt since there weren’t enough buyers of the goods and services we could produce. Enter the aforementioned Marshall’s plan of reviving the economies of Europe and Asia in order to develop markets for our goods and services. And, guess what? It brought prosperity beyond belief to our nation for nearly 40 years. The 50s and 60s were understandably periods when it seemed that nothing could go wrong, everything was going right, and anything was possible; it was a special era. The relentless pressure of war and personal and economic sacrifices were now history. In a very real sense, it was a time of innocence. WWII was just a 2-letter Roman numeral. The Hamptons were still a rich Waspy family living on Park Avenue. Korea was also a thing of the past. The basketball point-shaving scandals didn’t apply

to my friends who I have dubbed the Boys of Killeen’s. Jack Molinas was one of the few Greeks (I thought)--he was Jewish--who had gone bad. It almost was a reincarnation of the roaring 20s--everyday brought joy, excitement, laughs, new challenges, etc. It was also a time of great friendship, good times, perhaps excessive drinking, beautiful girls and great athletes. “Eddie My Love,” a haunting melody that is still with me, was the juke box favorite over several summers. There were other tunes during that period. In addition to “Eddie My Love,” there was “Sh-Boom” (Crew Cuts) and “Earth Angel” (the Penguins). Rock ‘n’ Roll had arrived. The song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” was also bothersome at the time since I found myself walking home alone every night. Likewise was the tune “You Belong to Me” (Jo Stafford), since there was no one I could claim belonged to me. Add this to my favorite tune from the late 1940s, Russ Morgan’s “So tired” (I’ll wait forever dear). But along came the Chordettes with “Mr. Sandman” who indeed did bring me a dream--a Bayside Queen named Mary Kathleen Tonry--and my lonesome nights were over. I fortunately disregarded Damon Runyon’s advice, “fall in love with an

heiress if you must fall in love.” Here are five of my memories of that era—memories that will never leave me. They center around Killeen’s Tavern, my basketball team, Rockaway Beach and (of course) my favorite.

Killeen’s Tavern

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a small bar named Killeen’s Tavern on a side street in Astoria, New York. The tavern’s history dates back to about 1934 (the author’s birth year). It was owned by a burly Irishman. The whole place was no bigger than 30 ft. by 15 ft., half of it designed like a half-moon bar, and the other half consisting of a few tables, a juke box, a telephone booth, a toilet that was always clogged up, and a kitchen that didn’t work. Beer was 12 cents a glass, and a shot of rye was 45 cents. The local crowd had its colorful characters. Damon Runyon would have loved this place. There was “Buster” the late night singer who crooned Sweet Leylani, Lorraine the Dancer, “Cuz” the night bartender, “Oil Pan” Tom, the landlord Pete the Russian, Freddie “Spook” Stegman--the greatest sport birddog this side of the Mississippi, and See page D6

Usually, I like to focus my column around one topic. But today I’ll just open up my email inbox and pull out a hodgepodge of questions. Q: I am 64 years old. I plan to start my Social Security at age 66. My husband is 62 and has been getting Social Security disability benefits for several years. His benefit rate is higher than mine will be by $210. If he dies, will I get widow’s benefits or will I not qualify because he isn’t getting real Social Security? A: I think I’ve said a hundred times in this column that disability benefits are just as “real” as any other kind of Social Security. So when your husband dies, you will get widow’s benefits. Assuming you are over 66 when that happens, you will get an extra $210 in widow’s payments tacked on to your retirement benefit. Q: I am 74 years old and still working. I am in good health and plan to continue working as long as I can. And I have no intention of signing up for my Social Security until I can fully maximize by benefits. At what age will be? A: You are already well past that age. Once you reach age 70, there is no point in delaying filing for your Social Security. By that age, you have already received the maximum “delayed retirement credits” that you are due. They cap out at 32 percent at age 70. In other words, had you filed for benefits at age 70, you would have gotten 132 percent of your full retirement benefit. And if you file now at age 74, you will get the same 132 percent rate. So you should file a Social Security claim right away. You will be able to get a maximum of six months retroactive benefits. Q: I was married to my first husband for 28 years. I have been married to my second husband for 12 years. My first husband just died. Can I get widow’s benefits on his Social Security account? A: No. As long as you are married to husband No. 2, you can’t get any Social Security from No. 1. But if your marriage to No. 2 ends (through death or divorce), then you can claim widow’s benefits from your first husband -- if they pay more than what you might be due from your second husband. Q: I worked for the Union Pacific railroad for 15 years. But I spent most of my life (more than 30 years) working at jobs where I paid into Social Security. When I went to file for my Social Security retirement, the clerk told me my claim would be sent to the Railroad Retirement Board for processing. What gives? A: For those readers who don’t know, railroad workers pay into the Railroad Retirement system, not into Social

Security. But the two programs mimic each other in almost all respects -- except that railroad retirement includes a second tier of benefits that are designed to resemble a private defined pension plan. Anyone with more than 10 years of railroad service is considered vested in the railroad pension system. So your claim is shipped to the RRB so they can determine what, if any, tier-two benefits you might be due. They also make sure your Social Security claim is processed and your benefits are properly paid. Q: I am 59 and soon to turn 60. I am getting $1,850 in my own Social Security disability. My husband died unexpectedly last month. His full age 66 benefit was $2,230. I talked to someone at SSA and she told me I should file for disabled widow’s benefits because they are always higher than regular widow’s benefits. Is this true? A: Please bear in mind that I don’t know all the facts about your case. But if you were told that disabled widow’s benefits are higher than regular widow’s benefits, that’s just not true. The earliest a widow normally can get benefits is age 60. But a disabled widow can file as early as age 50. A disabled widow gets a rate equal to 71.5 percent of her husband’s full benefit. That is the same rate payable to a 60-year-old widow. 71.5 percent of your husband’s benefit is about $1,600. And that is less than you are getting in your own Social Security. So there is no point in filing for disabled widow’s benefits. But if you wait until you are 66 years old, at that point, you can switch to 100 percent of your husband’s Social Security. Q: I’m confused. My husband and I are both in our late 80s. He is in poor health and may not live much longer. I don’t know what my widow’s benefit will be. He started his Social Security when he was 64. I took mine at 62. He gets $1,850. I get $1,345. Someone told me that when he dies, I will get 100 percent of his benefit. But another person told me I will only get 92 percent. Who is right? A: Well, in a way, they both are. I know that sounds confusing, but I will explain. But first of all, let me assure you that when he dies, your own benefit will be supplemented up to 100 percent of what he was getting at the time of death. So you will keep getting your own $1,345 rate, and then you will get an extra $505 in widow’s benefits to take you up to his $1,850 level. Thus, the first answer was right. I think what the second person was trying to say was that by taking benefits at age 64, your husband is getting about 92 percent of his full benefit rate. In other words, his $1,850 check represents 92 percent of his full retirement amount. And when he dies, you will get that same 92 percent

rate. But you’re going to get 100 percent of his 92 percent rate. Does that make sense? The bottom line is that you will get an extra $505 in widow’s benefits when he dies.

As I See It: When New York City was New York City C ontinued from page D3

dapper George Connelly--the Sunday bartender of 30 years who many believe James Cagney had copied his mannerisms from. Then there was the day bartender--Pat Killeen himself. An impressive 6’ 1” and burly 275-lb. man with a thick Irish brogue, who, when angry, would roll his black cigar from one end of his mouth to the other. Yes, he could intimidate if necessary. But he was a fair and open-minded individual, always with the best intentions at heart. Who were the other inhabitants of the Tavern? Here are some of their names: Scratch, Buddy, Gaylord (the author), Big Dan, The Whale, Jimmy the Greek, Steve the Greek, Weegie, The Rat, Vince the Prince, The Grey Fox, The Scavenger, The Buff, The Snake, The Brat, Tuto, Tex, Superman, Buster, The Hawk, The Cool, The Phantom, The Bant, The Weedler, Big Fitz, Red, Joey Hot Dog, Sparksy, Dixie, Jake the Weightlifter (all 95 lbs. of him) Bugsy, Louie The Lob, Filthy Phil, Tony Guido, etc. The girls included Mary Gloves, Marie the Dancer … perhaps it be best to stop here. The Boys of Killeen’s were the chil-

dren of working-class parents who endured The Great Depression and survived the harsh times of that era. Although better off than their parents, the Boys of Killeen’s were a group that appreciated good times, and were not nearly as security-conscious as their parents. It was a group that ultimately went on to succeed in the workplace, no doubt influenced by their New York City and Killeen’s experiences.

The legendary Killeen’s Tavern basketball team

I’ll pass here since most of the details appeared in my book, Basketball Coaching 101 (Amazon $18).

Rockaway Beach

It was New York City’s beach of beaches during that era. It was a period when many referred to the Rockaway’s as the Irish Riviera; interestingly, Jimmy Breslin described it as “where wood rots and people waste.” There were numerous drinking establishments one block from the beach to accommodate the crowds. They included Murphy’s and Gilroy’s on 90th Street, the quartet of the Irish Circle, Rainbow Bar, Leitrim House and Mickey Carton’s Mayo House on 103rd Street (he played the accordion while his sister, Mary,

sang). Ruthie Morrissey, regularly featured at the Mayo House, captured and touched so many hearts. The Mayo House was a favorite of the senior folk but it was Gildea’s--famous for drinking, dancing and fighting--that the younger set frequented most. Further west was McNulty’s and the White House on 109th Street and 110th Street, respectively. It was also a time I earnestly became interested in girls. At Gildea’s, I remember watching, with envy, the Savoy--a dance I never quite mastered. The 108 St basketball courts? I’ll pass again since numerous details and memories are available elsewhere. Did I mention my book, Basketball Coaching 101 (Amazon--$18)?

The Queen

How many guys have married the girl of their dreams? Well, I did. We married in 1967 after a 3-year courtship. Mary recently celebrated her 51st anniversary. It was dinner with the entire family at the Limani restaurant in Roslyn.

The Fabulous Copacabana

at the Copa. George Duganis was the maître d’ and a great table was always available. The best shows included Louie Prima, Don Rickles, Joe E. Lewis, Bobby Vinton, etc. Of course, there was more: Belmont Park, Saratoga, Yonkers and Roosevelt Raceway, the Jewish Alps (the Catskills), bar-hopping, etc. Space precludes providing details. I close this out with a comment from one of my readers on the first article: “I’ll always believe that our New York City was quite special. Somehow, I think you’d agree.” Amen! n

“The great hills of the South Country they stand along the sea; and it’s there, walking in the high woods, that I would wish to be, and the men that were boys when I was a boy walking along with me” (from The South Country: Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953).

And, it was indeed fabulous. And, it was a time I was courting The Queen. Name the premier entertainers of that era, and The Queen and I saw them

Schoharie Crossing, Mabee Farm, Cohoes Falls to Finish Line in Albany of 8-Day, 400-Mile Cycle the Erie BikeTour C ontinued from page D5 the Lost & Found. And awards: like the most bones broken; the most crashes (5); most flat tires (4); the youngest solo peddling cyclist (8), the oldest cyclist (84). Side-splitting fun. Day 8, Schenectady to Albany, 31 Miles Our last day, the eighth of our 400mile journey which began in Buffalo, is a breeze. Just 31 miles from Niskayuna into downtown Albany where most of us have parked our cars to take the bus to Buffalo for the start of the tour. The weather is perfect – sunny, cool. The highlight of today’s ride comes at Mile 12: Cohoes Falls, one of the most powerful falls east of the Rockies which posed a major challenge for the Erie Canal engineers. Some of our riders who started in Buffalo were able to visit Niagara Falls and now are ending with Cohoes Falls, outside of Albany. What a way to bookend this journey. Just next to the falls are 19th century brick structures, built as factories that

have been repurposed to apartments. Our ride takes us onto Peebles Island State Park, Waterford, where our final rest stop of our journey is arranged at the Erie Canalway Visitor Center. During the Revolutionary War, American forces prepared defenses here to make a final stand against the British. (518-237-7000, We ride through city streets - notable for the American flags that are flying - neighborhoods that have seen better days but nonetheless evoke a folksy feel of Americana. Now, we come to the Hudson River, a goal in itself. We ride along a beautiful paved trail beside the Hudson that takes us into downtown Albany, New York State’s 300-year-old capital, and finally, cross the finish line, 400 miles. You realize you haven’t just traveled 400 miles, but 400 years of American history, back to its very founding. And you understand so much better, the trajectory from colonialism and the clash of cultures with Native Americans, the transition from an agrarian economy

to the Industrial Revolution, the wave of immigration and innovation, the progressive movements that followed and precipitated the explosive changes in society: labor, Women’s Rights, abolition. Most interesting of all, is how all of these seeds still flower in contemporary culture and politics. All of this unfolds before our eyes, mile by mile. Biking adds an extra dimension to sight-seeing. It’s physical participation, an endorphin rush, an immersion. It puts you into the scene rather than merely observing – a participant, a part of the scene, rather than apart from it. The tour is meticulously planned, well organized and supported, and how we have such wonderful opportunities to meet people from around the country (36 states are represented) and around the world (travelers from a half-dozen countries are here). A gathering like this prompts such fascinating interactions as people share their backgrounds, perspectives. All of us have been so impressed by

how well organized the trip is - from the truck drivers who pick up and drop off our gear each day, to the people who set up our breakfast and dinners and the morning and afternoon rest stops, to the SAG drivers and the riders who are there to assist if we have a problem. To the lecturers, the massage therapist and bike mechanics who travel along with us like camp followers. For those who prefer not to set up their own tent (or take advantage of “indoor camping”) there is Comfy Campers, the closest thing to “glamping”. You have the luxury of having someone set up tent so it’s ready when you arrive, especially if it is raining, where you get a remarkably comfortable air mattress to put your sleeping bag on (amazing what a difference this makes), and take the tent down in the morning so you can just hit the trail again. Not to mention a fresh towel each day! Also, they set up a separate comfortable sitting area under canvas with charging stations. Those who want can also pay for coffee in the morning.


We are told that the finish line right at the Albany visitor center closes at 2 pm; UPS is on hand for those who need to ship their bikes home; a shower is made available nearby at the North YMCA; the municipal parking lot where

Historic photo of the lock at Schoharie Crossing © Karen Rubin/ many of us have parked our car is just next door; our luggage is deposited in the parking lot behind the visitor center for us to claim; some of us will take the shuttle bus back to Buffalo. This has been one of the best, most memorable trips I have ever taken because the end-to-end Cycle the Erie ride hits on all cylinders: physically active and challenging so you feel you have really accomplished something at the end; communal - being with like-minded people from all over the country and the world, rich in heritage, scenic, affording real exploration and

series, more than 700 cyclists aged 6 to 82 from 37 states and several Canadian provinces, as well as Australia and the United Kingdom, have just departed from Buffalo on Parks & Trails New York’s 20th annual Cycle the Erie Canal bike tour in celebration of the Erie Canal Bicentennial and Barge Canal Centennial. The 400-mile journey along the legendary Erie Canal ends in Albany on July 15. You can also follow the adventure on Facebook (www.facebook. com/parksandtrailsny),  Twitter (, and  Instagram (

A novel way to do it is by houseboat through companies like Mid-Lakes Navigation Co., Ltd.

Board approves permit for 555 Stewart project From page 32 ment to the Village of Garden City for H2M and Ron Hill’s traffic study and how Hill and the firm (H2M) was selected by the village. Mayor Daughney reminded her and other residents that the developer pays in this manner because that way, the village and its tax base are not covering any fees related to private developments. “Long ago we changed the rules to make applicants pay to save taxpayers’ money, so there is no conflict,” the mayor said. Trustee John Delany added that the Board requires the developers to pay for any and all studies and reports that they request related to the specific applications and the location they are in. Dowling said she and many fellow residents remain vehemently against 550 Stewart Acquisitions LLC not paying full school taxes on the development for a period of years ahead, as they understood the village taxes portion will be fully paid, commonly stated as “the village will be made whole.” Several members of the Board of Trustees replied to her and said “you will need to go to the IDA hearing.” Trustee Minuto said the discussion over the anticipated IDA application from the developer and “comments that it isn’t fair” results in an issue over where the village could place any opposition. “The Village Board has no control over the IDA process and we should

This is one of the original bells inside the tower of the Cathedral of the Incarnation. In 1876, Cornelia Stewart purchased a set of thirteen bells at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition.

I took this photo while climbing to the top of the Cathedral as mentioned in a previous column.

put forward that opposition to the IDA where it belongs and fight the fact that they could get it. There is no guarantee that the developer would get the IDA approval because there has been a lot of changes with the Town of Hempstead and Nassau County IDAs over the past year or so,” Trustee Minuto said. Levin also explained the process looming for public hearings either at the Town of Hempstead’s or Nassau County’s IDA, and he said “the community, if it feels strongly about this, should go down and argue against the prospects of an IDA for the project.” To date the Garden City Board of Education, which welcomed new members over the last month and held its annual July reorganization meeting on July 10, at the same time as the Board voted on the project’s special use permit, has stated it will encourage residents to speak up at IDA meetings and oppose the idea of a PILOT for school taxes. Matheny countered that the Village Board should not have the public face the risk that the developer would be granted a PILOT for its school tax contribution over the next 20 years. He concluded a public comment period, which lasted for 15 minutes with explanations and discussion points from the trustees and Attorney Levin, by asking if approval of the 555 Stewart Avenue project could go out for a public referendum. Mayor Daughney immediately said that will not happen as it would be “completely improper.”

St. Paul's plans to be revealed at special July 17 meeting From page 35 the largest donations in U.S. history and a public institution. The reconstruction and historic preservation of the Morgan Library & Museum took place over the last decade, with a total cost of $70 million. The expanded facility now covers 147,000 square feet. BBB’s website details its work at the Morgan Library & Museum, completed in 2012: “In collaboration with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, BBB designed the expansion and renovation of the Morgan Library & Museum. BBB assumed many roles throughout the project, including executive architect, project management, and design and production architect of the restoration of the landmark structures, office, and support spaces. The existing library was comprised of three historic land-

marks: the original, turn-of-the-century McKim Mead & White building; the 1928 library annex; and an 1853 brownstone mansion known as The Morgan House. The expansion knits the campus together through the construction of a 72,000-square foot modern, skylit atrium, which extends four stories below grade and required a 50-foot bedrock excavation. Contemporary in its glass and steel vocabulary and elegant, modern detailing, the new structure is sensitive to its classically proportioned surroundings and neighborhood. BBB also designed the renovation of the major exhibition gallery in the 1928 Annex Building and the conversion of the original reading room into a new gallery. In addition, the project features a new café and shop, office space, exhibition preparation spaces, collections storage space, and a 275-seat underground auditorium.”

2018 Garden City District 29 U11 Little League Champions The Garden City U11 team was focused on winning the U11 District 29 championship this year. After falling short in the finals at U10 last year, the team worked very hard to return to the finals and win this year. The team was led by the pitching aces Evan Cabral and Jimmy Trocchia. This dynamic duo, along with the rest of the pitching staff, allowed only 5 runs in 4 games. Will Jewell was behind the plate and handled them very well while shutting down the opponents running game entirely. The offense was ignited by lead off hitter Connor Griffin, who set the tone on the bases. Zach Zander and Matt Kneafsey manned the corner infield

positions, as well as supplying their power bats to the middle of the lineup. Ian Pupke, Mateo Fortney, and Gerard Schiraldi provided some pop with multiple extra base hits. Nick Clyne, Vinny Abrusci, Nick Griffin, and Ryan Kenny wore down the opposing pitching staff with long at bats and driving in some key runs. Henry Schnell turned in some defensive gems at key points during several of the games. The team faced Floral Park, New Hyde Park and Franklin Square during the tournament. The boys head into the New York State Section 4W tournament on July 11th and look to continue their winning ways.

GCAA 10 Year-Old team captures 1st championship

2018 Garden City District 29 U10 Little League Champions The U10 District 29 baseball team had an amazing experience! The coaching staff, Ricky Brown, Dan Fisher, Brian Desiderio, and Mike Quinn could not be more proud of the effort these boys displayed throughout the tournament. After starting off with a loss in Game 1 to Franklin Square, they were moved to the losers bracket. Luckily, they never gave up and managed to fight back to defeat Valley Stream North, New Hyde Park, Floral Park, and Franklin Square bringing them to the championship game facing Franklin Square yet again. This time, they played their hearts

out and managed to pull off the championship win, giving them the U10 District 29 Champion title. Each and every player worked hard and contributed to this successful journey either on the field or at the plate. The players on this team are: Justin Baiker, Jake Brown, Joe Carey, Christopher Desiderio, Will Egan, Thomas Fargione, Dylan Fisher, Michael Karcher, Skylar Lang, William Lentini, Charles Powell, Riley Quinn, and Nate Scalere. We look forward to seeing what else this team can do as they head into the New York State Section 4W tournament on July 10th!

Hat trick: 12 Year-Old team captures 3rd straight championship

2018 Garden City District 29 U12 Little League Champions Front row (left to right): Xander Palmer, Tyler Gorman, Matt Liberopoulos, Kyle Ippolito, Sean Leonardo. Middle row (left to right): Danny Psaki, Michael Spence, Gabe Beschloss, Aidan Walsh, Braden Soutar, James DelGaudio. The 12 year-old Garden City Little League District Team captured the 2018 12U NYS District 29 Little League championship and will represent the district in the upcoming New York State Section 4W tournament starting July 13th. The squad had been preparing the last few weeks to defend its previous district championship titles won as both 10 and 11-year olds, and completed the “hat trick” in impressive fashion, going undefeated in four straight games amongst a field of eight other teams from neighboring towns. Standing in

their path were teams from Malverne and New Hyde Park along with a talented Mineola team, which the GC squad had to defeat twice in order to emerge as champs. The boys leaned on outstanding pitching, solid defense (featuring some exceptional glove work in the outfield), and timely hitting against some tough opponents. The boys are having fun and hope to continue playing in front of friends and family as they head into the New York State Section 4W tournament.

The Garden City News Friday, July 13, 2018


4 Reasons to Sell this Summer 1. Buyer Demand Will Remain Strong Buyers are looking for their dream homes and are often competing with one another for available listings.

2. There is Less Competition Now Housing inventory is still under the supply that is needed for a normal housing market. This means that, in the majority of the country, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy the number of buyers in the market.

3. There Will Never Be a Better Time to Move Up Prices are projected to appreciate by 5.3% over the next year according to CoreLogic. If you are moving to a higher-priced home, it will wind up costing you more in both down payment and mortgage payment, if you wait.

4. It’s Time to Move Forward Look at the reason you decided to sell in the first place and determine whether it is worth waiting. Perhaps the time has come for you and your family to move on and start living the life you desire.
