fter a long and tenuous fall and winter due to Hurricane Sandy, the City by the Sea is ready for the commencement of another glorious summer in our beautiful beach community.

Locals and visitors alike will begin to flock to our beautiful seashore and frequent our numerous eating establishments that offer a wide variety of cuisines to appease even the most discerning palate. Just imagine beautiful blue skies, billowy clouds and soft-crashing waves hitting the shores of Long Beach. The city is ready to offer a wonderful canvas for lazy and carefree days of swimming, boating or just plain relaxation with a good book on our beach. From December 2012 to March 2013, the Chamber of Commerce served as a conduit by holding numerous public meetings to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Small Business Administration, National Grid, New York state and Nassau County roll out all the programs that are available to local businesses recovering from the storm. In December 2012, the chamber cancelled its 49th annual Dinner Dance, and instead had a special dinner party to feed more than 250 local residents in need of some holiday cheer due to the storm. We have to thank our honorees, Dr. Ronald H. Falcon, Man of the Year; Avi Mordekovich, Merchant of the Year; Cheryl Chapman, Professional of the Year; and U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy for volunteering to sacrifice their recognition dinner to instead feed the community with this special dinner. As more and more eating establishments and merchants Michael J. Kerr President

open up after the repair work from the storm, more visitors are starting to pour into our city. Although we will not have our boardwalk this summer, the city has done a miraculous job in restoring our magnificent beaches to their world-famous quality. Michael J. Kerr The first signs that a glorious summer is on its way was the chamber's hugely successful Restaurant Week, held during the last week of April and first week of May. The chamber has further scheduled special events for this summer to help stimulate business in the Long Beach community. For the Stanley Fleishman first time, the chamber will hold two street fairs, one in July and one in September, featuring eating establishments and merchants from the Long Beach Island and Island Park communities. The chamber is looking forward to an exciting year. This year will feature our 50th annual Dinner Dance, the Mark Tannenbaum production of our first street fairs, and, of course, our famous October Restaurant Week. Finally, we would like to thank our Board of Directors and dedicated office manager, Janet Cohen, whose efforts are responsible for the success of all that the chamber accomplishes. All of us at the chamber wish everyone a wonderful summer and hope to see you on our beautiful beaches. For more information about our wonderful city, visit www.

his was the year we got to see what a 100year storm looks like. Superstorm Sandy blew into town at the end of October and, in so many unpleasant ways, she’s still with us.

Our barrier island took the full brunt of the storm and virtually every building in town lost its ground floor or more to unprecedented flooding. FEMA and SBA became the acronyms of the moment. And we all became intimately familiar with the limits of our homeowners insurance. While our infrastructure has been battered, the spirit of Long Beach has never been stronger. Along with the hardship came incredible acts of kindness and generosity. Volunteers and supplies poured in from all over the country and new friendships were forged as neighbors helped neighbors through the ordeal that Sandy brought. There’s no doubt that the city will be back stronger than ever. Everywhere you look people are rebuilding and restoring. Reconstruction of our boardwalk—the city’s heart and soul— is well under way. The hospital is slowly returning to life, and every day brings the reopening of another business and the return of another family to their renovated home. And now, after this long, awful winter, Memorial Day is here, marking the official start of the beach season and the unofficial start of summer. We may be a bit bruised and battered, but those of us with sand in our shoes look forward to the respite of long, lazy summer days as we return to our beloved ocean and beach. Things in Long Beach will definitely be a bit different this summer; all the more reason to check out this year’s Guide. We’ve got the latest, up-to-the-minute info on all the outdoor activities that summer brings — many at new venues or with new schedules. As always, we have tried to make the Guide the most comprehensive source of information about Civitas Ad Mar, the City by the Sea, plus the adjoining communities of East Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout. The Long Beach Guide is a special publication of the Long Beach Herald, the hometown newspaper of the barrier isle. The Guide is published in cooperation with the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, and we are honored to mark another year as the official publication of the chamber. We hope you find this issue of the Long Beach Guide useful and informative, and that you enjoy reading the Long Beach Herald 52 weeks a year. Have a great summer, and we’ll see you on the beach!

CAMILLE GIARDINA, LICENSED RE BROKER/OWNER When it comes to buying or selling a home, passion, professionalism and personal service make all the difference when choosing the best real estate brokers for your needs.

Specializing in residential and commercial real estate

a viable part of the City of Long Beach. Their secret formula is cooperation: they work closely with the merchants, the city administration, the local hospital and the school district. A native born son of Long Beach, Stanley, along with his brother, Norman, and his illustrious father, Morris, have been active in business and civic affairs in this city all their lives. After he left the Army in 1953, Stanley and his family ran Fleishman Automotive, an overwhelmingly successful automobile sales business. Occupying most of Long Beach Boulevard they sold Fords, Lincolns, Mercurys, BMWs, Mazdas, Jaguars, Ramblers, and later on Honda motorcycles. He sold the business in 1980 and retired.

ong Beach — what a place! A privileged few know why and the population continues to grow.

Once a playground for the wealthy, now a sandbox for all. The Long Beach Historical and Preservation Society goal is to attract an interested audience and tell our island’s tale. Our Long Beach Museum is complete with archives and docents who will tell all. Everyone is touched by Long Beach’s natural beauty, white sand and vibrant ocean. From the seasonal migrations of returning Algonquin families in the 18th century to its Gatsby-esque residents of the Roaring '20s, Long Beach was a city of play, a safe haven. Because of World War I, Sen. William Reynolds’s Long Beach Estates concept met financial failure, leaving large summer homes vacant. The opportunity for large families to buy large homes, not just in the summers but year-round, meant the barrier island would become a safe, healthy home for children and families. With Ellis Island’s new Americans

The boardwalk's concrete piles were first installed in 1907, and have remained in place ever since, according the Historical Society. at our door, and the Great War behind us, these families chose to live in Long Beach. Their children were Americans, true, first-generation Americans, who came to have a safe, healthy community in which to begin their new lives. With the change from Village Hall to City Hall, they continued to build homes, schools, libraries, churches,

synagogues and movie theaters — there was a time when five theaters operated in town at the same time, harmoniously. Even the crash of the stock market in 1929 saw the opening of the Granada Towers and the Lido Hotel. The quality of life here was uncompromised, protected on our barrier island.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING 1643 - Sachem Tackapausha barters with Hempstead settlers to share the long white sandy beach. 1797 - Our island is named on Stewart’s map. 1837 - Wreck of the barque Mexico. 1849 - Building of a House of Refuge, a United States LifeSaving Station. 1861 - The Baymen’s secession from New York state (‘But not the Union’). 1869 - Davenport (Deb) Wright builds Long Beach’s first home. 1880 - The construction of the largest seaside resort in the world, the Long Beach Hotel. 1906 - The entrance on our shores of visionary master-builder, Senator William H. Reynolds. 1907 - Senator Reynolds builds the first concrete boardwalk in Long Beach; the Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Company starts to dredge the Channel bearing his name. 1908 - Construction of ‘The Estates of Long Beach’ signals the beginning of Long Beach as a ‘Planned Community.’ 1912 - The resort community of Long Beach becomes an

incorporated village. 1914 - Long Beach dedicates its first school 1915 - Lido Golf Course is designed 1919 - We have Walks and a West End bungalow community 1922 - Long Beach becomes a self-governing city; new milliondollar bridge built over Reynolds Channel; Long Beach-on-theOcean Trolley begins service 1927 - Long Beach Hospital dedicated 1929 - Stock market crashes and the modern urban Long Beach begins.

ong Beach is open for business, and we are extremely excited to enter the summer season.

The beaches are open, and work on our beautiful new boardwalk has already begun. The very fact that we will be able to enjoy a spectacular summer here in Long Beach is due to the heroic efforts of so many people who have helped us in the wake of Sandy. Our incredible first responders, the Police Department, Fire Depart-

ment, public works staff, all our CSEA and management employees worked around the clock and continue to go above and beyond for Long Beach. Additionally, the generosity of individuals, organizations, and businesses in terms of donations and volunteers Jack Schnirman has been remarkable. Neighboring communities, other states, and the federal government rushed in to assist in every way. Too many to name, they helped us restore electricity and safe drinking water, loaned critical equipment such as sanitation trucks and fire apparatus, and provided emergency medical services and disaster recovery support. Most importantly, we have come together as neighbors to help each other, protect each other, and move forward as an even more unified community. As City Manager, I am so thankful and proud to be part of this truly unbreakable Long Beach community. We know we have taken the first critical steps on the road of recovery. And I am confident that Long Beach will emerge better than ever. Together, we will rebuild stronger, smarter, and safer.

e truly had an extraordinary year in our beautiful City

by the Sea.

Superstorm Sandy may have done its worst, but Long Beach responded with its best. Our workforce and new friends who lent a helping hand in our time of need were invaluable, and we cannot thank them enough. Though the road to recovery is long, we have already made monumental strides in the aftermath of the storm. Our community has come together, making our bond as Long Beach residents even stronger. Not to be forgotten, we had an amazing summer prior to the storm. There were dozens of tremendous concerts on the beach, two arts and crafts festivals, a fireworks extravaganza, and even a film festival. We also had our

playground program for youngsters, wonderful programs for seniors, and many successful Scott J. Mandel sports leagues, ranging from volleyball and soccer to softball and baseball, you name it! We look forward to doing all of this, and more, in 2013. In fact, for the first time ever, we're going to have food trucks by the beach this summer in a new initiative we're calling “The Shoregasboard.” As always, please remember to visit us at for the latest upto-date news and events.

s summertime approaches, many of us are still focused on rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy. While this is something we must do, we should be sure to take time to consider what is good in our lives. Even though the storm damaged our homes, businesses, boardwalk and the beach, it could not dampen our spirits. It was wonderful to see this community of ours supporting one another and opening homes to those who lost theirs. Even though the storm tried to tear apart our homes, it did not destroy the closeness and camaraderie of our neighbors. New friendships blossomed while old friendships were renewed. Just consider the stories and the meals that were shared at the Knights of Columbus on Beech Street. The tremendous outpouring of help and support from the many volunteers keeps us going during these trying times. This city is blessed to have the finest team of emergency responders as they put themselves at great personal risk to protect us no matter the danger. It is said that “hope springs eternal,” and this coming summer season will bring a newfound sense of renewal. Although things might seem different and some may be, there are still many traditions that continue on. We will celebrate the beginning of the summer with the Memorial Day parade and the city will once again host the Waterfront Warriors. Many of our restaurants will offer outside dining where patrons can enjoy a delicious meal and great friendships under a beautiful summer sky. Our stores are coming back and we can look forward to shopping in our local establishments. I suggest you take a stroll through our city and check out some of the new businesses that

have joined our community. Don’t forget to stop in and say hello to those that have been serving this community for many years. I have always urged you to be summer safety smart and this year especially since the boardwalk will not be completed and the accesses to the beach may be different. Denise Ford Swim near a lifeguard and always wear your sunscreen! More than ever when riding bicycles, be sure to wear your helmet and follow the rules concerning bike riding. Whether on a bicycle or walking, always look "all ways" before crossing the street. Be sure to keep yourself and loved ones, including your pets, hydrated especially during the hot, humid days. As always, I am honored to represent you. I have the privilege of serving a community that is generous, welcoming and willing to go the extra mile to help a friend in need. Nobody pays it forward better than Long Beach. Our future is promising and we look forward to our hospital returning as well as West School reopening. Surviving Hurricane Sandy was a challenge for us all, including myself and my staff, Patti and Nadine. This has taught us the value of family, friends and community. We are looking forward to the summer when we can relax in the sun and enjoy this great time of year. We invite you to enjoy the summer with us!

s we continue the long journey toward rebuilding our homes, our community and ourselves, it is heartening, more than ever before, to welcome the arrival of spring and summer.

Nature’s rejuvenation of our earth is taking place parallel to the rejuvenation of our neighborhoods and people, giving hope and encouragement to all of us who have weathered a weary winter and difficult times. Despite the past six months, I continue to feel blessed to live in this beautiful community and enjoy our fantastic quality of life. I have always believed that what really makes Long Beach outstanding is our people. Long Beach residents have a tremendously generous spirit, bringing great energy and enthusiasm to everything we do. This was always evident before Hurricane Sandy hit our shores, and was particularly highlighted in so many ways in its aftermath. On a sad day in February, the city began demolishing our boardwalk. But just a few days later, more than 10,000 people gathered on the beach with no boardwalk to carry on an annual tradition of helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation continue their mission of fulfilling the dreams of people who have terminal illnesses.

We should never underestimate the value of our neighbors and how thousands of you, many who are still recovering from devastating circumstances, took the time to care for others because it’s what our sense of decency tells us is right. The resilience Harvey Weisenberg of our people is tremendous and it is my extraordinary privilege to work on your behalf and represent you in Albany. Better days are ahead for Long Beach and the South Shore. I continue to focus on bringing resources to the institutions at the heart of our community: our schools, hospitals, libraries, community and recreation centers; and of course programs that serve children, the elderly and those with disabilities. I am committed to protecting our beautiful natural resources and ensuring that those who protect us — our dedicated firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel — have the resources they need. My wife, Ellen, and I raised our five children in Long Beach, and our six grandchildren also grew up here. It’s true: there’s no place like home! Here’s to a wonderful Long Beach summer, and I’ll see you at the Memorial Day Parade! HARVEY WEISENBERG Assemblyman

Project Hope is a free, confidential crisis counseling service offered to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Project Hope helps people cope with the aftermath of the storm through counseling services. They provide what they call “psychological first aid.” Through support groups or one-on-one counseling, Project Hope counselors listen to people’s stories, give them the tools they need to manage the difficulties in their lives and then point them toward valuable resources that may help them in their situation. The New York State Office of Mental Health created Project Hope last October to assist individuals, families and groups impacted by the disaster caused by Hurricane Sandy. It is funded by FEMA and administered on the federal level by the Center for Mental Health Services at the Substance Abuse and Metal Health Services Administration. To reach a 24/7 confidential referral hotline network matching Hurricane Sandy survivors with a Project Hope provider agency in your community, please call: 1-800-LIFENET.

he Long Beach Fire Department serves and protects the City of Long Beach, as well as the East Atlantic Beach and Atlantic Beach Fire Districts.

The Fire Department responds with approximately 150 volunteer firefighters and 32 career firefighters. Our communications office is staffed 24/7 by 20 part-time dispatchers. Antonio Cuevas Jr. is currently the Chief of Department, and has 12 years of dedicated service to Long Beach and was a Firefighter with Columbia Engine Co. 1 of Oceanside Fire Department for six years. Alongside him are 1st Assistant Chief Robert Tuccillo and 2nd Assistant Chief Joseph Miller Jr. Together, they work to ensure that the city receives the best emergency service coverage possible. Our firefighters are extensively trained in the latest firefighting tactics. Many have also received special training in vehicle extrication, hazardous materials response, rope rescue and other technical rescue techniques. Our three ambulances are staffed with emergency medical technicians, many of whom are trained to provide advanced life support procedures. As one of the busiest departments on Long Island, last year the department responded to more than 5,000 alarms — not including the alarms in response to Hurricane Sandy. These included reports of fire, EMS calls, auto accidents, water rescues and other types of emergency calls, in addition to outside requests for assistance from our surrounding jurisdictions. We work hand-in-hand with our dedicated Police Department and other city services during times of inclement weather, such as hurricanes and blizzards as well as during blackouts or other major widespread emergencies. The Fire Department operates out of three fire stations: Headquarters is located at the rear of City Hall; Station One is at the corner of Maple Boulevard and East Park Avenue, and Station Two is located at the corner of Indiana and West Park avenues. With the support of our residents and the City Council, we are equipped with some of the finest equipment available. The department responds with four fire engines, a 100-foot-tall ladder tower, a 95-foot-tall tower ladder, a heavy rescue truck, three advanced life support ambulances, a floodlight truck, and a field communications vehicle. Also, several utility vehicles respond with a jet ski and other water rescue equipment to reports of emergencies in our surrounding bodies of water. These

The Long Beach Fire Department responded to a fire on New Hampshire Street in March following a report of smoke coming from the Sandydamaged home. four-wheel drive vehicles also assist during times of inclement weather. Recently, a fire training facility was built in the rear parking lot of City Hall. This allows our firefighters to practice firefighting and rescue techniques from the safety of a controlled environment. Constant upgrades are being built into the facility allowing training in an ever-changing environment. Members also unrolled at the Nassau County Fire Service Academy in Bethpage to further their firefighting training to provide themselves with knowledge and safety of the fire service to be prepared for any man made or natural disaster that may arise.

The city's beaches are open for the summer, and a number of events and concerts are scheduled.

SAFE SUMMER FUN It is important that all beach visitors obey the rules of the beach and listen to the lifeguards. Whether you are a life-long resident or a day tripper, please take time to review the following guidelines for a safe summer in our beautiful city by the sea.

BASIC RULES OF THE BEACH Learn to swim and never swim alone. QOnly swim when lifeguards are on duty. QLifeguards are on duty, weather permitting, from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. weekends only from May 25-June 16 (including Memorial Day Monday), and daily from June 22 - Sept. 2. Beach passes are required when lifeguards are on duty. QAlways go to the beach with an adult, and swim in front of the lifeguard between the green flags that define the swimming area. QIf you are in trouble, call out for help and wave your arms above your head. Do not panic. QDo not hesitate to call a lifeguard for help in any medical situation on the sand or in the water. QStay off the rock jetties and never swim near them. QCheck water conditions with lifeguards for undercurrents or sandbars. Both can be dangerous. QReport dangerous situations to the lifeguard. QCheck the depth of underwater surface by jumping or walking, not diving head first! QDo not attempt to make any rescue yourself. Get a lifeguard; they are trained to do the job.

QNo bonfires or barbecues are permitted on the beach or on the boardwalk as it reopens. QSwimming is prohibited without a lifeguard on duty. QNo animals are permitted on the beach or boardwalk when it reopens. QNo glass on the beach. QAll body boards must have a leash cord attached. QLeash cord must be used by the rider. QAll children must be watched by a parent or guardian. QFlotation devices such as inflatable tubes and water wings are strictly prohibited. QBody board use: It is at the discretion of the lifeguards to restrict body boards (distance from shore, number permitted and rough water or other conditions). QListen to lifeguards' instructions. QThe use of body boards and surf boards in the same bathing area is prohibited.

These safety regulations have been established to allow for the enjoyment of our patrons. They in no way imply that the use of body boards or surf boards are safe and will not result in injury.

elcome to summer 2013 in beautiful Long Beach. The past year has been very eventful on many levels. Although Superstorm Sandy taxed our resources — and resolve — we made it through. We worked together to bring our city back and that achievement is a testament to the great people of Long Beach. The city's administration worked tirelessly for months after the storm restoring our infrastructure, and our Police Department worked equally as hard to ensure the safety of all. Long Beach faced many challenges during the storm and its aftermath. It was essential that a curfew be put in place and checkpoints established for the safety and security of our residents. In my 35 years with the Long Beach Police Department, this is the first time that we needed to take such drastic action. I wish to thank all of our residents for their understanding and compliance. This added to our

recovery immeasurably. Long Beach was named the 22nd safest city in the United States out of more than 9,000 cities for 2013. This designation is based on nationwide crime date research performed by Neighborhood, a division of LocaMichael Tangney tion, Inc. This summer, our beach will have a different look, as the iconic Long Beach boardwalk is rebuilt "smarter, safer and stronger." However, all of our summer events, including the fireworks display, races and arts and crafts festivals will take place, along with some additional activities. Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant and true to the adage “if you see something, say something.” The continued safety of the residents, businesses and visitors is up to all of us. Have a great summer and remember, always swim near a lifeguard. MICHAEL TANGNEY Police Commissioner

his has been a difficult year for all of us in the community. The Long Beach Schools have tried to be here to provide stability and support for our students and their families. The Board of Education and our wonderful staff have been committed to restoring our schools and our students’ spirits. We are working at rebuilding all our schools and facilities, while at the same time moving ahead with the improvements to them made possible by the Bond Preservation Plan. We celebrated the opening of new classrooms at the Lido School and high school, the new lobby of the middle school, and the middle school library and the middle school auditorium. Repairs from the storm have also led to new floors and furniture throughout the district. We completed the renovation of the carport ceiling at the high school. We anticipate the opening of new science labs and classrooms at the high school, including the video studio, with the start of school.

Our students continue to excel. Long Beach High School appeared on the Washington Post’s list of top high schools in the country for the third year in a row. The school district was named as one of the top 100 school districts for music education in the David Weiss country for the second year in a row. Fragments, the high school literary and arts magazine continues to garner prizes. Despite the storm, the Long Beach High School science research students captured local and state awards. And our middle school Olympics of the Mind competition represented our region in the state competition once again. We are very proud that Long Beach High School is one of three high schools in Nassau County to graduate International Baccalaureate Diploma recipients. Please remember to visit our website,, for the most up-to-date information and notices. Information for families about our schools, and about our adult learning opportunities will be found there.

AND NOW, THE COMEBACK LONG BEACH IS REBUILDING AFTER SANDY Hurricane Sandy battered Long Beach last Oct. 29, and Nassau County and city officials declared a mandatory evacuation of the barrier island in the days before the storm hit. A large percentage of the city’s population remained, however, as they had during Tropical Storm Irene a year earlier, a storm that many said did not quite live up to the hype. But Sandy — which hit at high tide — made headlines around the world, as images of Long Beach’s storm-ravaged neighborhoods told the story of the hurricane’s impact on Long Island. A 10- to 13-foot storm surge broke through protective berms, tearing lifeguard headquarters, at National Boulevard, to pieces, destroying large sections of the city’s iconic boardwalk and breaching the dunes in the West End. The ocean met Reynolds Channel, city officials said, and city streets were flooded with up to four feet of water, much of it filled with sewage, many residents said. Hundreds of homes were damaged, and months later, many residents remain displaced. Despite the outpouring of support and donations that poured into the city, many residents continued to express frustration with the minutia of dealing with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, insurance companies and the reimbursement process as they attempted to rebuild their homes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited Long Beach several times after the storm joining city, county and other state officials to offer residents hope. “We’re all going to work together now to do what we need to do in terms of reconstruction,” he said. And though the road to full recovery may prove to be lengthy, there have been tremendous successes in the aftermath of the storm: Residents voted in the city on Election Day, debris

was removed from city streets and schools opened ahead of schedule, on a limited basis, on Nov. 13. School officials, who met shortly after the storm, decided to reopen after two weeks of planning and locating evacuated families and students. And the annual Long Beach Polar Bear Super Bowl Splash attracted approximately 20,000 people to Riverside Boulevard beach to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city’s recovery efforts. Long Beach is now focused on rebuilding. The City Council voted earlier this year to move forward with a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers storm-mitigation project to protect against future storms, and work has already begun on reconstructing the 2.2-mile boardwalk, with sections in the center of town to be completed by July. The beaches, meanwhile, are ready for Memorial Day and the summer season, and popular events such as the city’s summer concert series and fireworks display are in the works, along with arts and crafts and other festivals and a farmer’s market. And, of course, beach activities such as volleyball, beach tennis and surfing contests are all returning this summer. Many businesses that were heavily damaged in the storm have reopened, while others are still in the process of coming back, with the help of volunteers and fundraisers like Project Pay it Forward. City officials and local organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and the Barrier Island Alliance have teamed up to launch a number of initiatives to beautify Long Beach, support businesses and attract visitors. “We welcome everyone to join us this summer on the Continued on page 68

he Long Beach Medical Center has been serving the health care needs of Long Beach Island and its surrounding communities since 1922. Similar to most residents of the barrier beach island, the Medical Center was significantly impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

However, as most community residents, it is working hard to restore vital healthcare services. At print time, the Medical Center is poised to reopen two of its five wings, which will restore the hospital’s Emergency Department, operating rooms, and the departments and units needed to support them. Restoration is nearly complete and inspections/approval by the Fire Marshall and New York State Department of Health are pending. The Medical Center has restored the following outpatient services:

Thank You Long Beach and Good Luck! Did you know that after Super Storm Sandy, The UPS Store was open for mailbox customers by November 1, 2012? At that time, we were already distributing mail to our mailbox holders right here in Long Beach. Not only were we able to get mail, but UPS local deliveries were being forwarded to us via “My Choice” for customers who were unable to receive important parcels and documents due to the storm. At this time the Post Office, DHL and FedEx no longer could supply service to the area, but we at The UPS Store did! By Novermber 5, 2012 not only were we forwarding and accepting UPS packages, but we also were doing the same for USPS, DHL and FedEx customers at my own expense. Once again by November 12, 2012 we became virtual mailboxes for FEMA, SBLA, The Red Cross and Coast 2 Coast, accepting and forwarding important documents and checks for the local community while other services were yet to be restored. To this day, many of these same institutions still count on us for these same services. In fact FedEx has yet to reestablish a retail/drop-off location on Long Beach Island, and DHL has made The UPS Store here in Long Beach an authorized drop-off shipping location on their behalf. But more importantly the community has shown their support to us here at The UPS Store and not only has business returned, but is out performing last year’s pre-Sandy business. • Licensed & Insured

NASSAU COUNTY Long Beach became a city in 1922, but it is also a part of Nassau County and certain county services and facilities are available to Long Beach residents. In fact, barrier island residents who live outside the city limits — in East Atlantic Beach to the west and Lido Beach and Point Lookout to the east — depend on them. Nassau is governed by an elected Legislature that was formed in January 1996. It replaced the Board of Supervisors, which was ruled unconstitutional because of its weighted voting system. The Legislature’s 19 districts enable constituents to have greater access to their elected representatives. It includes an independent budget director who advises the Legislature on spending and revenue matters. The legislature also enables residents to submit petitions for proposed new laws that legislators are obligated to consider. The legislators serve two-year terms. The Fourth District includes the City of Long Beach, Atlantic Beach, East Atlantic Beach, Lido Beach and Point Lookout. The county executive — currently Edward Mangano — serves a four-year term and is the chief administrator.

TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD The Town of Hempstead is the largest township in the United States with over 142 square miles, a population of approximately 725,000, 34 unincorporated areas, 22 incorporated villages, over 65 parks and marinas and 2,500 miles of city, county and state roads. In 1643, two Englishmen, John Carman and the Reverend Robert Fordham, traveled from Connecticut across the Long Island Sound to Long Island. They represented a group of settlers who wished to purchase from the Indians (the Reuckowacky, the Merockes, the Matinecock, and the Massapequas), the current Towns of Hempstead and North Hempstead. In 1644, the Town of Hempstead was founded when a patent was obtained from William Kieft, the Dutch Governor of New Amsterdam. The name Hempstead seems to derive from Hemel-Hempstead in Great Britain, which means town spot. Hempstead grew steadily in the 1800s and by 1855 it was the most populous town in Queens County with just under 10,500 people. The town, along with the rest of Long Island, supplied the greater metropolitan area with a multitude of farm products and provided abundant recreational opportunities including seashore resorts, fox hunting, polo and horse racing. The population peaked at just over 800,000 in 1970, and is now levelled at approximately 725,000. Today, on the Long Beach barrier island, the Town of Hempstead encompasses Point Lookout and Lido Beach to the east and East Atlantic Beach and Atlantic Beach to the west. The Town maintains two marinas in Point Lookout as well as several beach parks. Hempstead Town has seven elected board members. The Supervisor, Kate Murray, serves a two-year term. The six council members serve four years each.

HUMANE SOCIETY stablished in 1976, the Long Beach Humane Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization. The LBHS exists solely to champion the ethical and humane treatment of the most unfortunate and neglected animals that are rescued.


The group has been able to survive and continue its mission through the generous public contributions that help fund and support its work. The society's mission is to fight for the humane and ethical treatment of all animals and to shelter, feed and provide veterinary care to felines it rescues or those who are surrendered. Once under our care, our goal is to find our cats and kittens good homes/parents.

The humane society, which is a separate and independent entity from the Long Beach Animal Shelter, formed a rescue and adoption center, nicknamed "Kitty Cove" in May 2005. Kitty Cove is open to the public seven days a week and located within the Pet Supplies Plus at 3644 Long Beach Rd. in Oceanside. In recent years, the society has worked in conjunction with charities such as Maddie’s Fund Pet Rescue Project, Purina Pet for Seniors, as well as North Shore Animal League. Each month, North Shore Animal League brings its mobile van to the Kitty Cove adoption center to help puppies find a loving home in the community. For more information about volunteer, donation and sponsorship opportunities, or if you are looking to give an animal a home, call (516) 594-1721 or (516) 889-PETS (7387) Visit or email for more information.



escue Ink Inc. — the non-profit animal rescue organization best known for its reality series on the National Geographic Channel, “Rescue Ink: Unleashed” — runs the Long Beach Animal Shelter. The members of Rescue Ink — a tough, tattooed bunch who, in addition to the series “Rescue Ink: Unleashed,” were featured in a self-titled book in 2009 — founded the group six years ago. Its volunteers include police officers, former military personnel and private investigators who look into cases of animal abuse in the tri-state area and around the world. The facility is described as “a safe haven for all the animals.” Rescue Ink operates the shelter, at 770 Park Place, to treat lost, stray or abused animals found by the city’s animal control officers and resident volunteers.

Christina Daly/Herald

The organization works closely with the Long Beach Police Department, the ASPCA and animal control officers, among others, conducts home checks when animals are adopted and investigates tips about abused animals.

CITY SCENES THE LONG BEACH OCEAN LINER By HAROLD MICHELMAN 2.2 miles of wood for 99 years lining the ocean it stood So proud and it drew a big crowd Ice cream and custard a hot dog with mustard Bicycles for two a carriage pulling you Rides, games and toys for all the big and little girls and boys Thursday night the sky was bright and the crowd would cheer ... as rockets light up in the air Friday, Saturday and Sunday was just one big fun day Then the tide went out and when it came back Luxury apartments looked down on the cracks New boards were put in place, to keep up with the new pace Church bells ring, the eruv will swing Good Shabbos it will bring Weddings on the beaches The benches were the bleachers With memorial plaques on their backs The fairs, the food and the snacks A special event, not a dent Then came the storm that was out of the norm It swung with a left then hit us just right And it put us through a hell of a night

Kristie Arden/Herald

Approximately 3,000 people turned out to say goodbye to the old boardwalk in January. Our liner stood strong, but not for long The legs started to buckle like it was hit with a brass knuckle The boards started to float, some as large as a boat In the engineers note “that is all” they wrote. We gave it one more day many had something to say Before they took our liner away Now it’s up to Jack and God willing, we will all be back Michelman is the owner of Surf Glass in Long Beach
